Finding True Happiness With Myself and Weight Watchers


Dearest Readers: Like many women, there have been many road blocks and detours in my life. Marrying at a young age — much too young — I recognized that happiness does not come from marriage, or from living with someone, or from the temptations of food. I have battled with weight problems all of myContinue reading “Finding True Happiness With Myself and Weight Watchers”

Friday Reflections…


Dearest Readers: I’ve been just a bit quiet for a while, especially with stories about my Weight Watchers journey. Why? Simple…I’m still on the journey…managing to yo-yo back and forth with the same one to two pounds. I feel as if I am rewinding, but I’m not giving up! My body is getting smaller, firmerContinue reading “Friday Reflections…”

No One to Blame But Me — At Weight Watchers


Dearest Readers: I confess, today is my weigh in day at Weight Watchers, only I am not going today. I’ve decided it is in my best interest to remain at home today — moping…groaning…arguing with myself…I’m certain you get the picture, especially IF you are working hard to lose weight. This week hasn’t been aContinue reading “No One to Blame But Me — At Weight Watchers”

Weight Watchers Saga Continues…

Free Writing 101…


Dearest Readers: Today is a beautiful day in the Lowcountry of Charleston, SC. The welcomed sunshine is beaming brightly in my windows, especially in my breakfast room. Yesterday, May 4, 2014, I decided to work in the yard, cutting back the brittle branches of my Lantana, lace Hydrangea and other brittle branches needing attention. Normally,Continue reading “Free Writing 101…”

Sh-h-h…Listen to the Mesmerizing Sounds of Quiet, and Fog Horns…


Dearest Readers: Morning has broken and when it did, I cringed. My head was pounding with another dreadful sinus headache. Glancing outside, I noticed this morning was covered with another blanket of thick fog. If you read my post from yesterday, you will recall I planned to walk the Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge today. ThatContinue reading “Sh-h-h…Listen to the Mesmerizing Sounds of Quiet, and Fog Horns…”

Inspiration on a Dreary Day


Dearest Readers: This morning, I awoke before anyone in my neighborhood was up. At least, I say that because all houses within my community were dark. Not a light on anywhere, with exception of the street lights. I let the dogs outside to potty, reminding them they must be quiet. “The neighborhood is asleep,” IContinue reading “Inspiration on a Dreary Day”

No More Christmas Cookies for This Chick At Christmas Time…No…no…NO!!!


Dearest Readers: Yesterday was my D-day. D=DREADED! Yesterday, after missing three weeks from my Weight Watchers meeting, I dressed and told myself it was time to face the music. No, I wasn’t singing. The music I had to face was the dreaded, almost morbid type of organ sound…Dum…Dum…Dum Dum. You can probably imagine the tune.Continue reading “No More Christmas Cookies for This Chick At Christmas Time…No…no…NO!!!”

Today Is A New Day — The Weight Watchers Way – Back On The Wagon Again


Dearest Readers: Today is a new day, one that I will not go to my regular Weight Watchers meeting. Over the Thanksgiving holiday I have gained — again!

While I am ashamed andContinue reading “Today Is A New Day — The Weight Watchers Way – Back On The Wagon Again”

Losing Weight, the Weight Watchers Way


Dearest Readers: If ¬†you read my posts on a regular basis, you might recognize I haven’t written much lately about losing weight. Why? That’s an easy question to answer. I have been stuck in a plateau — for 12 months, bouncing back and forth, trapped inside a spinning wheel, my body refused to drop belowContinue reading “Losing Weight, the Weight Watchers Way”
