My Weight Loss Adventure Week 9: NOOM

It was just before Christmas when I last wrote about my weight.  A lot has happened since then.  First Christmas happened.  Christmas was a lovely day spent with my housemate.  Knowing and understanding the need to social distance my family did not gather for our yearly holiday celebration.  At one level that really bothered me.  I missed the craziness of having a house filled with people.  I missed the unwrapping of family gifts and sharing …

The Goldbergs Debuts on Television January 1949

There seems to be a debate as to when The Goldbergs made its television debut on the NBC network.  The split is between January 10th and January 17th of 1949.  Whatever date the show actually debuted that was not the beginning of the story of The Goldbergs.  The Story of the Goldbergs starts at the turn of the 18th into the 19th century and is both joyful, exciting, and tragic.

My Weight Loss Adventure Week Eight: New Year

The New Year celebration is seeped in tradition and folklore.  Almost as much as Christmas.  Kissing the one you love as the clock strikes twelve.  Champagne to toast the New Year in, Fire works and noise makers that bring a loud sound of joy as one year passes and another starts.

New Year Eve has always been difficult for me.  I realized early on that The New Years celebration changed nothing.  You wake up of …

My Weight Loss Adventure Week Six: Being Sick

Last week there was no My Weight Loss Adventure.  This is because I was living the adventure with an illness that knocked the stuffing out of me.  In more ways than one.

It first hit my housemate d she did not feel good at all.  It lasted 48 hours and she began to feel better.  As illnesses pass from one person to another in ways only God understands, some ho, some way, that bug leapt …

My Weight Loss Adventure Week Five – The Supermarket

Thanksgiving week proved to be a challenge as there was so much really good food to eat.  The positive points were in getting the meal from an outside source there wasn’t much leftover and also we added extra vegetables so there were more veggies on the plate than starch. 

I want to go over a tip I was given when I started to try and lose weight.  Even though I have failed in the past …

My Weight Loss Adventure Week Four

My Weight Loss Adventure – Thanksgiving

It is week four of my journey and I am still unable to get weighed.  This makes the task a little harder as I really don’t know if I’m moving forward or not.  I have done my best to implement the suggestions made by the dietician and I am starting to do better with those.  I have limited all the sugar drinks, including juice, from the diet.  My main …

My Weight Loss Adventure Week Three

Start Now.  Start where you are.  Start with Fear.

Start with pain.  Start with hands shaking.

Start with voice trembling. Start and don’t stop.

Start where you are, with what you have.

Just….Start.

The Long Weight
