Wednesday, August 02, 2017      5 comments

I worked until 6pm today, so I decided to take the bus home. I was standing in the spot just in front of the back doors of the bus (one of those long accordion ones). I was in my "zone", listening to my music, only one stop away from my d... Read more

Have the next two weeks to myself and Zeus. Perfect timing... feel like I have needed a break for a while now. Work has been stressful the last few weeks, but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. One more month before a new manager st... Read more

Zeus and I had another great walk on Sunday. It was sunny, we started off in the direction we usually go in every morning. Instead of looping back, we continued our walk up the path, heading in the direction of our weekend walk that we would ta... Read more

I'm happy to say that I"m back on track! The Spring 5% Challenge ended on June 3. I didn't meet my 5% goal, in fact, I ended the challenge only 1/2 a pound less than I started, 8 weeks earlier. I was doing so well, and then I wasn't. What... Read more

Wednesday, May 31, 2017      9 comments

On Sunday, I decided to give myself a "cheat' day -- after all, one day of not paying strict attention to my food choices wasn't going to be that bad. Sunday turned out to be a regular day, and I stayed within my food limits. Monday, I we... Read more

I forgot to take a "before" photo of myself at my heaviest, back in November, when I decided to take control of my eating. I couldn't find any photos of myself that showed how big I had gotten. I didn't have any 'before' pictures of me at 303 l... Read more

Saturday, May 06, 2017      6 comments

This was a tough week for me. Realized yesterday why I was getting so many cravings and felt like I was starving all the time... a late, unscheduled and unexpected arrival of TOM. Peri-menopause is not fun. I had a cycle that had run like... Read more
