- Pittsburgh, PA, United States
- I am in my 40's, and on a quest for better, healthier living -- for me and my family. I have lost 44 lbs and hope to lose more, but my blogging goal is not to gloat about what I have lost, or obsess about what I haven't. I will keep blogging about weight loss, but also plan to chat about other things that interest me; including,improving life for my son who has learning disabilities, the human brain, meditation, Zen and Buddhism and their application to healthy living, books I have read or have waiting on my shelf/Nook to read, what I want to be when I grow up .... basically Life, the Universe and Everything. I have a PhD but that doesn't mean I know more about life than anyone else. In fact it may mean I know less. I am interested in hearing from other people, especially those who also agree they don't know it all. Knowing it all is boring! Do I believe in magic? Not the kind in Harry Potter (although wouldn't that be awesome!), but I believe there is more to us, and this world, than we currently understand or accept, and we have the power to make our lives much more than ordinary.

Week in Review : Anxious
Instead of losing weight this week, I showed a gain of 2 lbs at my Friday weigh in. I will admit, I am surprised. No, my diet was not perfect, but sooo much better than December diet, and yet -- a gain. I feel a tinge of panic to see that number. I know what I need to do, and that is, buckle down and commit to clean eating. So I won't whine, but just make this week better. On the plus side, my fitness routine has been pretty good, and overall I feel fairly strong.
