Today is my 58th birthday. I cannot ignore the fact that the last gasp of youth is upon me, and I plan to take advantage. This past weekend, my pre-birthday weekend, I was on call, so knowing this in advance, I decided to take most of the following week — the week beginning on my […]

I still can’t believe it. It’s the first time in 12 years that I cried at a WW meeting! How lame is this? The subject of the week was me, I guess. And the topic was all about being your own bff, which I definitely am not. I am my own wef (worst enemy forever), […]

I was not sure I would have time to blog today, and I am happy that I do. Before a few nights ago, I never gave a thought to street organs or organ grinders, and really knew nothing about them and never even dreamed that I would want to know anything about them. HOWEVER. A […]

Sort of. Well, I did sign up for the Triathlon and have done a bit of everything to prepare. The triathlon date is July 28, so theoretically, I have plenty of time. Last weekend’s 3 mile run was nearly fatal for me, but later in the week, I ran roughly 2 miles with not that […]

The Sometimes Perplexing Sensation Of Being A BFB: Tiny Head, Huge Tummybutt

One’s self-perception is not always based in reality. At least, I hope this is the case because yesterday I felt very much like the biggest and fattest of bunnies. There was no reason for this, it just was. I wore a dress from Chico’s during the day yesterday and although my rational self knows I […]

More Update and Quick Post

Weight: down to 135. Exercise: going on a run in a few minutes. I am very frustrated right now and need to get rid of some stress. I think the run will help a lot. Frustrated because I spent most of the late morning and all afternoon on office related work and I am still […]

Update On BFB-Hood, Promises and Goals

The weight is coming back down from its post-Pesach peak. 136.6 today. I am going to try for the next few days to decrease consumption of perhaps ice cream. As I have discussed previously, this is very very very tough for me, and I may not be able to do this. But I can probably […]

To Komen or Not to Komen, Revisited

This afternoon, I opened a piece of mail which I must have received earlier in the week. Lately, I’ve been so busy and getting home so late, that I often skip opening or even looking at mail, not to mention even skim through the multiple periodicals that land at our address. The exception is the […]

The Ultimate BFB Experiences Massive Weight Gain and Level Ten Pain, But Not Simultaneously: A Quick Post Just To Stay In Practice

The whole “still eating” thing: I gained about 2.5 pounds — up to 137.6 on Monday and up to 138.2 on Tuesday, but on weigh-in day at home the weight came down to 135.6 at home and at WW 135.2, so only up .6 from my last weigh-in at WW, and actually the exact same […]

Family Dynamix — Still Eating, Venturing into Less Safe Territory

First, just to elaborate on last post, by way of reassuring the gentle reader: the aforementioned reusable containers will, in fact, never be re-used, at least in their current iteration. They are, as I write, either deposited in the Springhill Suites dumpster (their contents had been disposed of in the customary and civilized manner befitting […]
