     Warning: This post contains graphic images that might disturb some readers.  I know, it’s a very bold statement to make — to blame myself for cancer. Let me explain … I’ve been going to the dermatologist for yearly check ups since I was a teenager. I’ve had a few moles removed, but they were all benign. My mom had a history of basil cell carcinoma, which I was aware of — that being why I started going. I went for a regular check up in January of 2014 and everything looked okay. Months went by and I noticed this mole on my right, upper arm that just didn’t look right.

  • Trans fats still weighing Americans down

    22 Oct 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Americans are eating less trans and saturated fats than they were three decades ago, but they're still consuming these bad fats more than what's recommended for good cardiovascular health. Intake of healthy omega-3 fatty acid was steady over the last 30 years, but most people still don't get enough.

    People can eat potatoes and still lose weight, a new study demonstrates. The study sought to gain a better understanding of the role of calorie reduction and the glycemic index in weight loss when potatoes are included in the diet. “Some people have questioned the role of potatoes in a weight loss regimen because of the vegetable’s designation as a high glycemic index food,” explained the lead investigator of the study. “However, the results of this study confirm what health professionals and nutrition experts have said for years: it is not about eliminating a certain food or food…
  • Diet for your DNA: Novel nutrition plan sparks debate around data protection

    Personalized nutrition based on an individual's genotype - nutrigenomics - could have a major impact on reducing lifestyle-linked diseases such as obesity, heart disease and Type II diabetes, experts say. However, a study of more than 9,000 volunteers reveals that strict regulations need to be put in place before nutrigenomics becomes publicly acceptable due to people's fears around personal data protection.

    Hello everyone, my name is Reesa. I'm just restarting my weight loss journey (there've been some ups and downs over the years), and would love to be able to have people to talk to that are in the same boat of needing to lose a significant amount of weight. Below are some of my stats. Age: 28 Start Weight: 520.2 lbs Current Weight: 512.6 lbs Goal Weight: 180 lbs I've been overweight since I was 6 years old so I don't even know what my true goal weight should be, but that won't be figured out until I'm much closer to that number. My weight has been hovering at or around 500 lbs for the last 4…

    Hi My name is Dave, I'm 53, and on a quest to lose yet more wieght. 2 years ago I weighed in at 220+ kilos, and via diet and medication I got myself down to just under 180 kg. Sadly due to carrying to much weight, for 40+ years, and more than one car verses motorcycle, or motor cycle verse road contest, where I found myself bouncing down the road , sadly both have had a telling affect on my body, and I now have back knee and hip issues. I've now been off sick since the begining of the year, and as my hip is basically bone on bone, surgery is now "they say" the only resolution, but…
  • What I've Learned About Weight Loss and Wedding Dress Shopping

    Hi everyone! I got engaged in June and am currently in the planning process. I have learned a few things about wedding dresses and weight loss and thought this might be a helpful post, as I've seen a lot of people lately post that they are also Shedding for the Wedding! Ultimately, my two things I have learned about are dress shape and dress sizing. 1) Wedding dress sizes are NOT the same as street clothes sizes! I currently have jeans that fit from a size 12 to a size 6. I of course wear the Old Navy 6's all the time because they make me feel amazing, but when I wear my Garage 9's in the…

Don't consider myself a binge eater, but clearly an overwater and need to redefine my attitude towards food. In the coming weeks I hope to work through a few issues here - hope I don't bore anyone but I need to refocus my priorities and this is a good vehicle. For tonight I will try to stay on plan. Thanks.:)

  • An "Eating Disorder" Counselor Gives Me Advice

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:40 pm
    I mentioned years ago on my blog that I wanted to see an eating disorder specialist for help with my binge eating, but there wasn't one near enough that it wouldn't mean 3 hours round trip for a visit. Finding someone who would take my insurance was another issue. After I stopped binge eating on my own, I no longer felt the need to see a specialist. But this year's been tough, recovering from 2 years of chronic pain and the loss of loved ones in my life, so I did think seeing a regular counselor would be worthwhile and helpful... and it is. But when I've talked about the way I still like to…
  • Facing the Scale

    16 Oct 2014 | 1:04 pm
    I've been avoiding it for a long time, but yesterday I decided to just get up this morning and weigh. I guess I just didn't want to know, was afraid if there was a gain I'd feel worse (I have been feeling bad enough without adding one more thing) and honestly have had very little motivation to *do* anything about my weight anyway... so what's the point of weighing? Well as I said yesterday, the point is my health, and I need to get refocused on *that* (and weight is, at least in obesity, connected to what's going on with my health).So here we go. Scale this morning said 232 pounds. That's up…

It was the first slow, calm, relaxing, unbusy day I have had in awhile... rainy and chilly, with no appointments or volunteering or work that had to be done, so I have had time to be quiet and see what is going on with me.

    This week has been a tough one for me. Over the past couple of months I have been on and off AIP more times than I can count... which doesn't do anything for the elimination diet part of the equation. I'd need to be solid with the elimination part for a month (again) before I could start reintroducing things again properly (all I've reintroduced successfully so far is cocoa, nutmeg, and cumin.) I do see health benefits from AIP though, even when I am not perfect at it. It's a very natural, healthy, whole foods, anti-inflammatory diet, so I do get some benefits from eating this way for 3 days…

    I’ve loved makeup for as long as I can remember. I played around with punk rock-inspired eye shadow palettes when I was … well, probably too young to be playing around with punk rock-inspired anything. (Don’t worry — my mom never let me leave the house with it on, much to my chagrin.) I’ve done many of my friends’ makeup for their weddings, enjoy trying out different looks on my own face, and I seriously love watching video tutorials online. I can only imagine how much better my punk rock look would’ve been if YouTube had been around 20-odd years ago.

We’re still in Inverness in the same rental place, where the awesome Neighbour Cat still sneaks through the bathroom window and falls asleep in random places. Catching up on September… it was one of those months that make it look like I have an actual social life! It started with the annual Jocktoberfest at the brewery.

But much has changed since 2009 so it was time to pass the brown baton. Apparently the new owners plan to do all the Someday things – replace the aged kitchen, bathroom, stairs… and put in an en-suite! Looks like they have no need for a bedroom beer cellar.

  • About Last Night...

    5 Oct 2014 | 8:34 am
    There have been moments in my life when I’ve sensed the presence of a deceased loved one. While warm and bittersweet, I understand those feelings to be resurrected memories of the connection we had when they were alive; me consciously sating some need I perhaps hadn’t completely identified. I don’t believe those vague presences stem from a visit by their spirit. That’s why I can’t explain what happened last night. I often employ the “Just ignore it, it will go away” approach to healthcare. But after a months-long battle with hip pain – in which the last few days I’ve been…

    You know how when you get home after being away for several days? You might think, ‘Gee, it’s good to be home.’ Yeah, well, I’m still waiting for that feeling. “Relaxed” isn’t exactly my middle name, so when Jim suggested we go to the beach because he wanted to relax, I said I probably wouldn’t like that. I need to be busy to have fun. Hiking, sightseeing, shopping, going to a play. THAT’S fun. Sitting around doing nothing? Capital B boring. Then I saw the ocean from the balcony of our 12th floor hotel room at North Myrtle Beach and I didn’t care if I did anything else all…

    Seven months ago today, my boyfriend Jim’s garage burned down, taking with it 70 percent of all he owned in the world. Second only to the pain of personally losing something or someone we love is watching someone we care about lose something they love. Conversely, the same is true when we witness their Phoenix moment, when they rise above the loss. Some people – including me – wondered if Jim would sell his place and move away from the memory of that night in February. But he meant what he said when the fire still smoldered: “I’ll rebuild.”I bought this bracelet yesterday: When I…

  • Too Much of a Good Thing?

    Ami Spencer
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:52 am
    If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Losing weight ultimately comes down to a simple formula: calories eaten are less than calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole…

  • How to Burn Extra Calories on Weekend Workouts

    25 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    You made it to the weekend! Aside from a break from the daily grind, it means a lighter schedule to do what you want when you want. With no meetings to run off to or deadlines to make, you have more time to devote to your sweat sessions, so here are some ways to get more out of your weekend workouts. Go long: Without having to squeeze in your workout before, during, or after your 9-to-5er, you have more time to devote to exercising, so use your weekend to do longer workouts. If you normally run or swim for 30 minutes, go for 45 or even 60. Or sign up for a two-hour hip-hop dance workshop.

From the Lululemon we covet to the almond milk lattes we crave, we live and die for our fit lifestyle.

    Reposting an old Halloween piece of mine as I imagine that many families will be out shopping for Halloween loot this weekend. It's coming. And I'm not really all that worried. At least not about Halloween night. The fact is food's not simply fuel, and like it or not, Halloween and candy are part of the very fabric of North American culture and to suggest that kids shouldn't enjoy candy on Halloween isn't an approach I would support. That said, Halloween sure isn't pretty. On average every Halloween sized candy contains in the order of 2 teaspoons of sugar and the calories of 2 Oreo cookies…

And while I'm not suggesting everyone follow his plan (there's no one right way, and what's right for one, is no doubt wrong for another), I thought it was thoughtful, well written, realistic, and very much in line with my philosophy, and so I asked him if he'd mind if I shared.

The seeds were sprinkled on the figure’s head and watered, resulting in a green fright-wig hairdo. Many other Chia Pet figures followed, including a popular Barrack Obama version, and every year on Halloween countless unfortunate dogs are dressed up in undignified Chia Pet costumes by their owners (see photo).

The simplest and most obvious way to lose weight is to consume fewer calories; almost everybody knows that by now. A calorie is a measure of energy, and the number of them in a food or beverage equals the amount of fuel they add to the body to be burned off; not a whole lot of people know that. The number of calories a typical adult should consume in a typical day is 2,000; most people have no idea. (Johns Hopkins University quizzed 246 regular users of their hospital…

    When was the last time someone said something to you that Totally. Blew. Your Mind? It happened to me this summer. Here’s the story. I was sitting next to a woman at a meeting, and we begin chatting about our children (of course). She shared that her 14 year-old daughter had recently met her long-lost father who, after more than a decade of being ghost, resurfaced with a burning desire to be a Real Father. The woman was, understandably, cautious. The daughter was, naturally, thrilled. They invited the father to the daughter’s upcoming 8th grade promotion ceremony and hoped for the best.

It’s muted, sure, I’m only 29;  but I’m starting to realize it’s there. Sooner rather than later, I’ll be 30.  That’ll lead to 40.  Tick, tick, tick.  50, 60, and even 70 might come for…

So, why should I continue to lose weight?

    As you know, Ontario has seen a significant increase in the amount of water damage claims in both commercial and personal insurance policies over the last few years. The damage caused by last summer’s flooding was record setting. With changing weather patterns, there have been some significant changes in the water damage coverages offered by many insurance companies. Many of the changes have reduced the available coverage for damage to your home as a result of over-land flooding and/or sewer back up. It’s important to note that you may be eligible for subsidies (depending upon where you…

    The top safety issues we face in the car insurance industry have traditionally been to do with texting while driving or being under the influence when behind the wheel. In other words: all forms of distracted driving. While these areas certainly deserve much of our attention, there is still a serious concern around fatigue and its impact on both safety and car insurance rates in Ontario. In fact, Ontario is considered to be at a higher risk for offense in the area of driver fatigue. About 20% of fatal accidents in Canada are related to driver fatigue (Transport Canada). In Ontario, that…
  • Do you Need an Umbrella Insurance Policy?

    Tim Currie
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:27 pm
    First, let’s try and understand what an umbrella insurance policy provides. This type of policy is an excess policy that provides additional liability coverage that sits on top of your current (or primary) auto policy, homeowner’s policy or boat policy. It will also add some additional liability coverage’s that your primary policy may not cover. The key here is to fill as many gaps as may occur when and if you require protection against legal action. In other words, If you are sued, and the amount of your primary liability policy is exhausted, your umbrella insurance policy will kick…

  • Wide Calf Boot Options

    A Merry Life
    14 Oct 2014 | 12:45 pm
    While I’ve lost dress sizes over my weight loss journey, one thing that has never changed much is my calf size. I wear clothes that are 5 sizes smaller but I still need wide width (or size up) and wide calf boots. I only started wearing boots last year with a cute pair of cowboy boots, but I’ve fallen in love with the style. I have multiple pairs of cowboy boots now and the process of finding wide-calf boots in that style took a bit of extra effort.

    Finally, I’m home again. It feels good…but sad, too. I had such a fun weekend with my friends! Y’all know I can’t have a normal vacation. A car crashes into a restaurant in which I’m eating, cops bang on my hotel room door demanding to be admitted, a freak spring snowstorm occurs–my travels always seem to have something odd about them.

  • Organic Chicken Apple Sausage and Cheesy Spinach

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    A big part of eating healthy and organic is reducing the amount of processed foods we consume. This can mean a lot more cooking, and even more cooking from scratch. It can be time consuming. Luckily, there are still options that can make the task of cooking a healthy organic meal, faster. That’s exactly what led to my Organic Chicken Apple Sausage and Cheesy Spinach recipe. I spotted Applegate’s chicken sausage and knew it would be a hit with my family. When I buy processed foods, I always go with brands that I trust. I also look at the ingredients to see what exactly is in the…

I would have to multi-task getting ready for work, handling a toddler, and frying an egg. It didn’t always end up well, or as delicious as I had hoped. With Avocado and Organic Baked Eggs, I can toss this in the oven and use those precious 30 minutes or so to do what I need to do. The Organic Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins are easy enough to make ahead of time too. The creamy texture of the avocado and the warm yolk are a perfect contrast to the…

    Low-fat, gluten-free banana nut bread made two-ways! My family went bananas for this!!My aunt recently started following a gluten-free diet, and my close friend has Celiac, so lately I've been dabbling more with gluten-free baking. I had a large bunch of over-ripe bananas sitting on my counter and decided to experiment taking my favorite Low-fat Banana Nut Bread Recipe and making it gluten-free. Since the recipe makes two loafs (yes you can halve it if you wish) I thought why not use two different gluten-free flours to see which yields the best results. Not having a ton of experience baking…

  • How I Tackled My Friday

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:47 pm
    Last night we got back the copy-edited manuscript of the #wycwyc book. To say I was excited is an understatement!  I posted that photo on Facebook with the caption: Holy Crap! That’s the full, printed copy-edited manuscript of ‪#‎wycwyc‬. Is it strange to still have I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening thoughts at this stage? I still can’t believe I’m writing a book!  Me, Mrs. Failed-English-101-in-College — MAN, did I hate writing back then. To say I am overwhelmed is an understatement, too.  I knew writing a book was hard but I don’t think I was…
  • So… Ummmm… I Have a Weak Ass

    23 Oct 2014 | 8:13 am
    Today I got my Dynamic Movement Assessment results from my physical therapist.  She recommended it once my neck was feeling more mobile so we can identify any other imbalances that may be causing the pain in my lower legs. The test consisted of squats, step ups, hops, and planks. I passed the full squat and prone plank tests with flying colors. However, my single leg squat and hops showed: Corkscrew deviation, retrotrendelenburg deviation, excessive trunk flexion, and knee adduction to midline 4 times noted which is suggestive of significant gluteus medius weakness as well as possible…
  • Day 4 of Food Journaling!

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:38 pm
    Well, I’m on day 4 of food journaling in S Health.  I didn’t have any grand plans of restarting my journal but I’m actually enjoying it. There’s just something about that little extra bit of accountability. Especially for someone who tends to turn to food when bored, stressed, happy, sad, whatever. Plus, being home all day makes it really easy for me to eat whenever I want without even realizing it. I think the biggest benefit of food journaling for me is the curbing of the mindless night-time snacking. When you are about to eat something just because and then notice…
  • Food Journaling and More on S Health

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:14 pm
    I’m going on day two of keeping a Food Journal on S Health and I must admit, I really like it! S Health is Samsung’s personal fitness tracker app. You need to purchase wearable accessories to take full advantage of all the features, but the basics available with the phone alone are pretty impressive. Today I used it to track a short run. It stored my location, duration, distance, calories, average speed/pace, maximum speed/pace, elevation and, if I was wearing a heart rate monitor, it could have tracked that as well.  It’s not that different than the Nike+ or RunKeeper.
  • A Wallow-less Weekend!

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:23 pm
    Yesterday was the Baltimore Running festival and I was supposed to run my 6th half marathon as part of my marathon training.  I decided, after much internal debate, not to go. I’ve been seeing a physical therapist for neck pain and tendinitis in my legs and we came to the conclusion it just wasn’t worth it.  As for the full marathon, well, at this point it’s all up in the air. I’m taking it day by day and will start back running short distances this week to see how I feel. With that out of the way I can share my awesome weekend! I decided NOT to wallow in self-pity…

  • Try To Stomach Warmed Up Pasta To Lose Weight

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:43 am
    Scientists from the BBC have discovered that warming up yesterday’s pasta can help you to manage your weight better. It seems that pasta, the super concentrated, sugar laden, refined carb that is blamed for making so many people fat is now a good food group – so long as you don’t eat it straight away. In Michael Mosley’s latest episode of  Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, he presented findings from a small study that looked at the effect of eating reheated food. Eating freshly cooked pasta is still a bad idea; your body will digest it quickly and your blood sugar levels…

  • Children in the UK are abusing laxatives to lose weight

    Senna alexandrina – the plant that Senokot comes from British children are abusing laxative pills in an attempt to lose weight with many taking dozens every day. Stores are selling an unhealthy number of tablets to children and this is causing serious health problems. Laxatives for weight loss? Contrary to popular belief laxatives do not aid fat loss at all – any weight lost is from water loss. Laxatives act on the bowels to forcibly remove waste and it does this by drawing water from the body to loosen stools. The waste in the bowels is the end point of digestion and no further…

I first saw this dress at Full Figured Fashion Week and couldn’t wait for it to come out. The simplicity of the A-line skirt plus versatility of the 3/4 length sleeves makes this a year-round staple.

    Guys, I am telling you, sometimes you need to take life one day at a time…especially if you are trying to lose weight and live healthier. I had a conversation with my previous Crossfit trainer, Larry, on Saturday.  He is working on some certifications and needed a “dummy” or should I say, “student” to do some practice work on.  We had a good conversation where we came up with a weekly plan for me to make good choices.  This is what the plan entailed: Getting up at 5:20 every day to get in a quick Tabata workout.  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are squats, push…

My surgeon informed me they'll keep the catheter drain in for a few more weeks (that was expected). After they take it out, he said there's still a risk the infection could still be lingering & if that's the case, they'll need to go back in & open everything up. A fourth surgery (that was not expected). I was so flabbergasted & caught off guard I didn't even ask the questions I should have. I should have asked why it would even be a possibility to have 4 surgeries. I should…

There was no way I was going to take those pills for the rest of my life. How did I get to this point? The answer wasn’t hard to discover. In two years I’d put on 40 pounds.
