How about that phrase? Does it resonate with you, too? It's from a Dodge truck commercial that I heard for the first time last night. It made such an impact that I printed it in 72 font, made 3 copies, and posted them in my bedroom, bathroom and... Read more

OMG - I cried buckets!! NOW I understand why y'all would watch. I was inspired and my spirit was renewed. I've also been aided on my journey by the Journey song (as sung by the cast of GLEE) "Don't Stop Believing". Again, I cry a lot over it. ... Read more

Friday, September 11, 2009      2 comments

I can remember where I was when I heard, and how stunned I felt. We were 700 miles away, and our only thought was for those at home, the only place we could think to go was church. We heard the helicopters overhead and found out that our littl... Read more

Tuesday, September 08, 2009      10 comments

I spent a lot of time thinking about this over the weekend. The main reason why I am obese, is that food has been/is everything to me. Food has been my best friend, my lover, my confidant. As an emotional eater, if I'm happy, I celebrate... Read more

Sunday, September 06, 2009      6 comments

I decided to use the library computers today to get thru some stuff. Ended up finding a lot of new folks' blogs to follow, but they all had similar themes: Eat Less, Move More. I am retaining a lot of fluid. My legs are swollen and it hurts... Read more

I had enough Splenda left for 1 mug of coffee, so I've been using sugar. Yesterday I used the last of the Splenda. I was hungry all day! Today I used sugar, and I wasn't hungry. I had about 1/2 my mug of coffee before I had to go run some errand... Read more

today I am the windshield. Sigh. After a stellar day yesterday (day 3 with one mug of coffee), my evening was spent with a growing uneasiness. I could not get to sleep thanks to DH's snoring, the squeaking of the girls' bedroom door as the ... Read more

Wednesday, September 02, 2009      8 comments

No official exercise yesterday - I could barely move. BUT I did do some marketing, so I wasn't a complete blob. I have found that, on weeks like this when I have to be super-frugal, we eat hot dogs and fries, macaroni & cheese (from scratch, w... Read more
