My emotions are going all over the place right now and struggling with suicidal ideation.  I recently had a mammogram done and they saw something suspicious.  My biopsy is scheduled for July 9th and I'm scared.

Aw, Bonesie, wouldn't that be amazing, Tup and Bones outside a cafe sipping lattes and eating pastries while the sun goes down behind the Eiffel Tower :)  Would be so incredible.  Ooh la laaing at passing French people :)  Lol.  Today I'll have to settle for a cup of tea on the front step whilst talking to the cat :)  Lol.

Yes it's a terrible shame that the art of craft and good workmanship is under appreciated.  I was washing dishes at a friend's after a bbq last week and she had some lovely old pans that her mum had given her twenty years earlier, still going strong, still look new.  It's getting harder and harder to pass things down as so much doesn't last as long any more.  And yes "I can get that cheaper in ..........." - well you're not getting that cheaper, you're getting a mass produced knock off that won't last you two winters!  I do think it works out cheaper in the long run to buy good quality - that's what I love finding in charity shops, a really nice piece that's well made and will last for ages but a fraction of the price you'd pay for it new - those are happy bargain days :) xx

Oh yeah!

My perspective is that if one pays a cheap price, they're going to get cheap $h!t.

This evening we ate a hamburger on salad dinner, made Cloud Bread (for the first time,) then learned the line dance to Foot Loose the movie. Lots of laughter, and.....
dancing's a short cut to happiness, for sure.


Tomorrow dd15 begins 3 days of Four hour driving lessons in a row.  She's a bit terrified, and not sure if she wants me in the back seat or not.  Will see.

Wish us luck.

Aw Lighter, Footloose is one of my favourite films, I even liked the remake!  I find I usually prefer the originals but I thought the remake was great - different enough to be different but still retained all the stuff that made it Footloose :)  Life long obsession with Kevin Bacon started when I saw that film.  How did driving lesson go? xx

Look up 5:2 Fast diet website... I think there's all kinds of support there.  I m all over videos from all sources...still researching detail of food choices, when to eat and what supplements to include.  Learned lots today.

Yep. Just read more about WW, not thrilled about the cost. YOU are eating the kind of food (minus animal stuff) that I want to eat. WW seems like it pretty much supports standard American eating....

There might be a free nutrition support group, something at the Y, etc.

Eh, you can watch the first video... in an epson salt bath.... with a candle lit.... just relax and get through it, Hops.  Maybe?

You should have a bit more info before joining WW, IMO, but good on you getting started.

Whatever works for you, that's the right plan.

Thank you, Lighter.
I tend to take in stuff better by reading and found this, which helped too

Also read another thing from the NHS (U.K.) but it was dated....

It's unrealistic but I remember research way back about how extreme caloric restriction extends lifespan. So intermittent fasting may be a good compromise for some. I doubt I'd be successful with that level of tracking, maybe I should just go join WW. Never done it before.

Fluff begone!

Hops:

When you think of becoming more active, think in terms of getting your heart rate up for 20 seconds... however you do this.... then rest for a minute, then up for 20 seconds, then rest for a minute, then up for 20 seconds, then call if done till you do it again 2 more times in a week. 

What is that?  Less than 10 minutes a week, for sure.

Also, if you do it an hour before you eat anything it will rev up the hormone production... growth hormones, etc. 

You might find that eating twice a day, whatever calories you take in, suits.  Or three, or one, but not more than that since it drives up insulin and keeps you burning what you're eating.

If you let insulin levels drop off, you're body switches to burning your stored energy reserves, and this is the key to keeping off the weight, and not gaining it back.

Fewer meals, no snacking is how cavemen lived.  It can work for us.
