Big box romancing
Saturday, May 02, 2015      4 comments

The kid had plans with her friends, so the hub and I were on our own tonight. We decided to go on a "date" grocery shopping. Yes, we are a boring old married couple, but Costco is one of our favorite places so a trek out there counts as a date... Read more

I don't know who decided that crossing legs is feminine behavior, but as I gained weight over the years and my legs became more generously proportioned, it became very challenging to cross my sausage-y appendages. I could only do it by using my... Read more
You can't ask me that!

Today, yet another colleague at work, a man, asked me: Have you lost weight or is something wrong with you? So I smiled and said yes, my doctor put me on a diet to deal with my catastrophically high blood pressure. Then he asked me: ... Read more
Stare if you want

Today we had a day-long work event with typical low-cost calorie-rich catered food. Lots of pastries, a carb-and-fat-laden lunch buffet, etc. I got a few stares in the line as I put together my lunch, and also while eating, but I didn't mind. ... Read more
Strange concerns

I'm not sure this counts as a NSV, but in the last several weeks, I've had a few people who hadn't seen me in a while ask if I had lost weight, and if I were seriously ill. So, on the one hand I guess it's gratifying that the weight loss is app... Read more
Home safe home

What a relief it is to be back home. I love traveling with the family, but it's dangerous to have a teenage kid with the busy metabolism and high carb needs of a soccer player choose restaurants for our meals. It is so nice to be back home whe... Read more
Saggy bits
Sunday, April 26, 2015      1 comments

There's a large vanity mirror in the hotel bathroom. Against my better judgement I inspected myself before my shower. I know I have saggy bits - I can feel them every morning when I shower. But I didn't know what they *look* like until this w... Read more

We drove six hours yesterday and made a few pit stops. One place had a full-length restroom mirror so I steeled myself to look in it as I waited for the kid. I've only started looking into mirrors the last few months, and had spent many years ... Read more

We have a 3-day soccer weekend ahead of us - our kid is playing with her team at a "college showcase" two states away. Tomorrow we drive ~6 hours for the first game, and stay to Sunday for three games total before driving back. Which means... Read more
This goofy body
Thursday, April 23, 2015      4 comments

For so long I had to see my doctor only once a year, for my annual checkup. Well, one year I broke my elbow, and another year I tore my Achilles, but otherwise I hardly ever needed to darken her door. And then I was put on PSMF, and had to... Read more
A little hiccup

This has been a challenging week - work has been overwhelming so I've been playing catchup at night at home. I worked through one night and got literally 30 minutes of sleep in the early morning before having to get up again. So I back-s... Read more

Wimping out
Monday, April 20, 2015      3 comments

Okay, I slept on it and decided to wait at least a couple more weeks before cleaning my closet of the clothes I've outgrown. I've been re-feeding/maintaining for barely 4 weeks and it all feels still a little tenuous. Maybe in two weeks I'll f... Read more
Going all in
Sunday, April 19, 2015      4 comments

My closet is stuffed with clothes ranging across 6 sizes. I have a lot of really old clothes that I outgrew long ago, that I have kept for up to several decades a) for sentimental reasons or b) because I didn't want to accept that I would never... Read more
Buffet bustin'
Saturday, April 18, 2015      4 comments

The kid is away on a birthday sleepover so the husband and I had dinner alone - like a date! Unencumbered by children, did we go to a cozy bistro? A romantic cafe? No, we busted our bellies at a sprawling buffet in a strip mall. Colleagu... Read more
