Breaking up with Bread… Again!

I’ve tried to break up with bread, and it’s hard.  I’m not interested in breaking up with the multi-grain bread like Ezekial Sprouted or Dave’s Killer bread… (both of which are awesome) I’m talking about WHITE BREAD. White bread is like a pristine canvas just waiting for the artistic swipe of peanut butter or the […]

Back on Track

Hello 2018! Well, we’ve been at this 2018 thing for almost 24 hours already, but I have a confession. I have big plans for you, 2018. Big. BIG. BIG PLANS for you! First, back to tracking what I eat and knocking off these last 10 (OK, 14) pounds. Back to the program. It was a […]

This is done to ensure there is no sediment buildup blocking a sensor…” As some of you know from an earlier podcast, to foster weight loss I’ve gotten into home coffee roasting both for pleasure and for something to do […]

Losing 15 Pounds – Summary of my success

For those of you in the know  you know that my sister and I are both over 40 (ok, I’m over 50) and we both have over 40 pounds to lose.   We co-author this weight loss blog and co-host our podcast to document our weight loss success.   Originally it was for our future selves… and over the last few weeks it became apparent that we are not alone.   There are oodles or women… losing it over 40.

Runner’s High? No. Dieter’s High? Yes.

It’s come as a pleasant surprise, a real shock: I can’t emphasize enough how *tremendous* I feel. I don’t know anything about nutrition or biology or physiology beyond what you or I can google, but I imagine that I feel so great, not so much because of the weight loss, but more because of what […]
