Progress! (and yet another commitment)

Well, welcome back, everyone! Yeah, it looks like after enjoying the freedom to gasp and wheeze without a mask at the gym, we're gonna have to go back to those hated cloth diapers indoors for a while longer. So if you haven't yet been vaccinated, this might be a good time to do it, so … Continue reading Progress! (and yet another commitment)

Bookworm snacks and Kathy Bates, not necessarily in that order

Hey everyone, welcome back! The weight's up a schoche: 204.8 and even though I'd prefer it was going the other direction, I'm okay with it. But why? Is it possible that the weight loss doesn't means as much to me anymore? Is it possible that I'm just as happy to maintain as to lose? I … Continue reading Bookworm snacks and Kathy Bates, not necessarily in that order

After the week I’ve had, I’m just happy it’s not up even more!

Yeah, my weight's up again this week -- 203.0 -- which is almost as much of a gain as last week's was a loss! Still, given the week I've had, I'm just happy it's not even higher. Let me summarize: Anniversary - as I mentioned last week, Mr. 50by60 and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. … Continue reading After the week I’ve had, I’m just happy it’s not up even more!

Spambots need love, too! (an unofficial non-weigh-in pre-Christmas post!)

Hey everyone! As you know, I'm still on my Official Holiday Blogging/Dieting Break, so no official weigh-in or post till next week. However, just wanted to take a few minutes to say THANKS to all of you for your moral (if not financial) support over the past year. It's been a tough one, hasn't it? … Continue reading Spambots need love, too! (an unofficial non-weigh-in pre-Christmas post!)

Who cares if it’s still 2020? It’s PUMPKIN SPICE TIME, y’all!

Sorry to it's report it's still (checks watch) 2020, but in spite of the fact that yeah, it's STILL 2020 (c'mon, Father Time, what ARE you thinking??), that doesn't negate the fact that everyone's favorite time of year is here, and that time, of course, is PUMPKIN SPICE TIME YAYYY!! Sure, it's still over 100 … Continue reading Who cares if it’s still 2020? It’s PUMPKIN SPICE TIME, y’all!

What’s up, WordPress? Back for another banger!

Good morning, everyone! For those who are a little puzzled about the title, I've been watching a LOT of the adorable "Twinsthenewtrend" videos on YouTube this week, and that's how they start out every video. Check 'em out! Fair warning, though, start one, and you'll look up and wonder where that hour and a half … Continue reading What’s up, WordPress? Back for another banger!

Just a flesh wound!

Yeah, it's a teensy little gain: 198.0 But it could have been worse! Last week, in case you didn't notice, I took the week off and did one of my legendary "road trips" to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona, where it only got up to about 122 degrees Fahrenheit at, um, 9:00 AM. So not too bad, … Continue reading Just a flesh wound!

Whoa baby — I’ve actually got a loss!

Yes sir … Continue reading Whoa baby — I’ve actually got a loss!

It’s fine to say it sucks!!

Good morning, everyone! Well, in spite of the title of this post, I'm happy to say my weigh-in doesn't suck (at least it's down a skoche!): 199.4 Whew, back a teensy beensy bit from that over-200-pounds-eek-eek-eek cliff! I won't breathe (or eat) easy till I get back under 195, but I hereby vow that I … Continue reading It’s fine to say it sucks!!

Ooh, so close (but not in a good way) plus a “geezer” joke!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! First, the bad news -- let's get this over with QUICK, shall we? 199.8 Eek! That's wayyy too close to the dreaded 200 for comfort! Still, I'm not going to let it get me down because: All my clothes still fit, I can still go out on walks and hikes without any … Continue reading Ooh, so close (but not in a good way) plus a “geezer” joke!
