Good Morning

I am sitting in my bed sipping coffee (that Mikey left for me) in my favorite keep-it-hot-thermos trying NOT to eat.  I am so very hungry.  My tummy is growling.  I need to get as much liquid down me as I can–this is a challenge, since all I want is FOOD.  I thought it would…

My Very Bad-Terrible-Awful Day

Just one of those days. Everybody has them. I am mad cuz of this and I am mad cuz of that. You just smile and you get through them, but right now I don’t feel like smiling.  I don’t feel like cussin’.  I don’t feel like yellin’.  I really don’t feel like much anything ……

After workout Burn

Never made it to the gym yesterday.  Car hunting took forever.  We ate out, and that was a diet blower, but not bad because I put more than half my meal on Mike’s plate.  hehee.  He is so good for keeping my food in check.  Give it to Mikey: he’ll eat it (Yesterday, he ate…

Help me this is gonna hurt in the Morning ….

It’s 2 o’clock in the morning, and NO, I haven’t been to sleep. Tomorrow is going to be painful.  I am not sure why I can’t sleep tonight.  This hasn’t been a problem in a while.  Not sure just what brought plague of insomnia on me this fair evening.  I really can’t afford the lack…

My Destructive Love Affair

What does a  love affair have to do with weight loss …. read on dear reader.  I am sure you will see how it weaves its way into the very fabric of weight loss. I must confess that I have become an awful cheater.  Lust has taken a hold in my belly and has completely…

Livin’ Large !?!?????

I’m sitting here after a long day of hiking, trying to remember what I wanted to write about the day we floated (I should say shot through) the Royal Gorge.  All I can really think about is how stuffy my tummy feels and wondering if I have gained weight.  Why am I wondering how much…

The Mile High Club ….

Oh!  Shame on you … get your mind out of the gutter … I’m sitting on a plane for the first time since losing 81.5 pounds.  And for the first … time since I gained weight years ago … flying was not a completely terrifying experience for me.  I didn’t worry if the seat belt…

The day before weigh in #25

That number sounds magical, laden with promise. The promise of a magnificent experience; sadly, the chance of a magical weigh in is remote at best. I suppose it could be the harbinger of doom, but the more likely scenario will be that I have remained the same. There is a very real and strong chance…

Sexy Sunday

Why is my Sunday sexy, you ask?  Is it because Mikey and I have escaped to some exotic get away?  I am at some hot new show that is a must-do-before-you-die kinda thing?  Have I turned a corner in my weight loss that I can exercise to my heart’s content while I still lose 3…

The Petulant No-so-Fat Woman

Why am I a grumpy budget?  I have no idea!  I just woke up grumpy.  There are several things that could be contributing to my fantastic mood.  Let me list them for you: I didn’t remember to sleep with my breathing machine on last night.  We forgot to turn the air down, and I woke…
