Chocolate cake, bit of baklava, two glasses wine, crackers and second, third and fourth helpings. Improvements would have included: one glass of wine, half a piece of cake, eating one helping or even two, eliminating bread and crackers. That would have cut back 1000 calories. Also, eating less fruit and popped crackers before party would […]

From whence do our anxieties hail? Last two nights finally caught up on some sleep and feel somewhat refreshed. Good things do keep happening – met a physician yesterday who may be interested in becoming involved in obesity treatment at some point in the next year or so; another physician might have some interest as […]

i am not sure why all of a sudden sleep has become elusive. It is not that i do not sleep, it is that I sleep fewer hours and more restlessly, with more awakenings and difficulties getting back to sleep, and it does remain very challenging to get out of bed every morning, which is […]

I am slogging through more things. Closer to being up to date, but still a long way to go. cb and I got some great time together – we were to meet Carol and Paul for brunch at Eden, a very cute farm to table pretty much vegetarian restaurant, where i go the menu item […]

In past two weeks since home, weight has slowly come down towards baseline. Very very slow – or so it seems – because scale fluctuates a lot every day and it is hard to know if average is trending downward. Grand total gain had been up 3.6 pounds, I think, when compared to the day […]

In so many ways, things seem to be clicking. They are looking up, even though winter will soon be upon us. For one thing, got car back today, which males me feel like I can finally put this last horrific fender bender behind me. Ironically, with newly repaired vehicle, as I drove thru Schenley Park, […]

First a shout out to my birthday friends, Karen and Lynnie, who are both very very young beauties. what a nincompoop I am to not have known when their birthdays were! What kind of a friend am I anyway to have been so neglectful? I have to think of clever birthday gifts to make up […]

it is all set – we are returning to this Field House next year, on August 1. Will send in the holding check when we get back home. Ends of vacques are always so sad for me, leaving me feeling wistful. Here in Pleasant Mount/Honesdale, Pa, you really feel like you are getting away from […]

Today was Rooney’s ice cream day, and I had my “single” cone of peanut butter chocolate with chocolate sprinkles, although i have had some form of ice cream every day. Single in quotes because single at Rooney’s is prob about 2 cups. Estimated calories about 800. Maybe more. I planned my intake early today, and […]

Yes. Very much so. Indubitably. Always, always, always! I do not act on these urges that weigh, with exception of holidays and vacques. So this is how i have been living, and increasingly so, over the last few weeks. Lots of ice cream! Big portions! Multiple servings of starchy carbs per meal!!! Everything is soooooo […]
