I'm about to leave for a long day at work. I'll be running about so can't bring a proper lunch. There are a lunch and early dinner reception planned, but their probable offerings will blow my eating plan to smithereens. So ... I ate five ... Read more

This is the time of year when work becomes hazardous to my health. It seems we have a food celebration every other day. Yesterday it was a reception with warm appetizers, mini-desserts, and wine. Today, we had *two* events: a huge cassat... Read more

So my nutritionist corrected me a few times: "It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change." And I nodded my head in agreement and then moved on to the next topic. And I've read it often in blogs and articles here, "It's not a diet, it's a lifest... Read more

So I can't deny it anymore - I am clearly slipping back into my old bad night-time snacking habits. Taking a deep breath here. Tomorrow is a new day. I will start it with new resolve, and remind myself that this is a lifestyle chang... Read more

I come here at the end of every day to log my food and type in a few thoughts, with the goal of having a routine that keeps me on track and motivated. Tonight, I'm a little flummoxed - I don't have any thoughts related to food or health floatin... Read more
A different kind of arm wave

In some of the public restrooms here, there are the old-fashioned towel dispensers. In others, gentle air dryers which are so weak that I usually end up wiping my hands on my pants. And then there are the ones with jet-powered blowers, that bl... Read more

Hot and cold
Friday, May 08, 2015      3 comments

I blogged earlier that I went from perimenopausal hot flashes to being cold nearly all the time, as I lost weight. My kid laughs at me a lot because we have such different responses to the same environment. Well, tonight I am feeling unreasona... Read more

My endocrinologist instructed me to weigh myself at least once a week. Being slightly OCD, I weigh myself nearly every morning. I know it's not necessary to do this so frequently, but I can't seem to help myself. The first couple of month... Read more
A new appreciation of sweets
Wednesday, May 06, 2015      1 comments

PSMF seems to have re-set my taste buds when it comes to sugar. My old sweet tooth seems to have calmed down and become less insistent. Other than a *very* occasional chocolate - i.e. one piece every two or three weeks - my sweets cravings are... Read more

After watching the kid play another soccer game, we let her choose dinner, and of course she chose her favorite Asian restaurant. And as usual, we ordered all her favorite dishes, along with a couple new ones to try. For 3 people: 2 appetizers... Read more
