It flew! This month, I gained no pounds, I lost no pounds, but even though the scale stood still, everything else seemed to be moving. A social event that filled my emotional brain with anticipation and some anxiety for several weeks leading up to it was, just as my logical brain predicted, wonderful in ways … Continue reading March didn’t march
As predicted, I was up almost a pound last week. That was actually not too bad. Sorry, everyone, for coming into Weight Watchers naked but I just couldn't afford to weigh my clothes. I'm already behind in my planning for the week, which excites Perfectionist Me who likes to throw herself on the nearest divan … Continue reading Little successes, little goals

You'd think we'd be so past that, 47 years later. I … Continue reading “Because I’m worth it.”
