There is no definite age when the transition occurs, although I know all of this blog’s gentle readers have seen 40 year olds who look 90 and 50 year olds who look 30. Being physically fit and not smoking are probably the two most important things a person can do to look and feel young, […]

Catja went to her annual veterinary checkup appt yesterday. Woody brought her to the Point Breeze Veterinary Clinic or Center or whatever. The vet there is well-known. There is good news and bad news. The good news: we have rid Catja of those pesky fleas. NO parasites of any kind this year. The bad new: […]

This bunny has been inserted late, or perhaps early, (if you are thinking ahead, post-traumatic 2012 Presidential election, to the 2012 Chanukah). You must understand that you cannot just conceive of a cartoon and presto, there it is on your website. The steps are very complex, and often interrupted, and inordinately time-consuming. You would think […]

I am really annoyed right now. Once again, I tried to connect to my remote desk top via the connect portal from my home computer, and there is a connect problem. So I called the helpdesk, and the guy who answered was totally incompetent, clearly new. I waited a few minutes to even get to […]

Catja is a very smart cat. She was standing by my chair, wanting affection, and now she is examining something next to the bed. Why do I wax on (wax off) about her intelligence? Because she is my cat, and that is what people do when they have a cat. On Wednesday, she had an […]

A la the movie Singin’ In the Rain “Gotta Dance!” Anyway, I ain’t singin’, too nervous. It’s getting dark and a bit warmer than yesterday, but perhaps raining and I still have not left the house. Maybe I will and maybe I won’t, but despite the fact that I usually do little exercise on two […]

I engage in mind games willingly. There are a million and one tricks I play on myself each and every day in order to stay on track with weight loss and weight loss maintenance.

I have only a half hour to blog today. It is 5:04 and even though Thursday is my “day off,” it hasn’t been that for a long while. I have spent the whole day at the computer working on work: patient phone calls, sending results, and also doing things that are related to my role […]

Weight A Minute!

When it comes to weight loss, what is your goal? Is it just so the scale will show a different number? Is it to get down to a certain weight and stay there? To be healthier? To fit into a certain outfit? To get off your medications? To avoid illness? Everyone’s goal is different, but […]
