For the record? Number went down at Thursday night's weigh-in. Has each week. Little by little. I'm basically eating the same as I have been for 4 years, but am now tallying it by points as well as by the SP system that my RD prefers I ... Read more

Saturday, July 24, 2010      3 comments

Starting this week's 55+ Females Team challenge for Healthy Diet Habits made me face a fact: I have to buy a food scale to use while here. Whether I stay just a few more months or for the next 1.5 years is irrelevant: I NEED a scale to he... Read more

Here it is. I have for decades said and believed that "looks don't MATTER"! Frankly, I still feel that way. And yet... In a few days I will be seeing people I've not seen in DECADES. Four decades plus a few years to be precise. An... Read more

This may be muddled because people keep talking to me... Sigh... that's why I usually write late at night or in the wee hours after midnight! Here's hoping I make sense: ... Read more
"Would you tell others if you knew you were dying?"
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      13 comments

That's basically a question of the day from a team. My much-densed answer was/is: "I'd keep the news to myself as long as I could hide it. Facing death or its possibility is a very personal experience. " This is a serious post. I know m... Read more
