    LOL! Of course. I've checked out the possibilities, but shipping is pricey, so I'm going to check sports shops. It never occurred to me they would be in pieces and therefore in boxes and easy to miss. And I don't exactly hang out in sports shops. But now I'll check it out. I'm not at all an athlete, so when there are activities I enjoy for their own sake, I should take advantage of them. Love swimming too, but pools are a little more difficult, logistically.

    I adore My Name Is Asher Lev; Potok is a brilliant writer. I read it many years ago, and even as a very young women I was amazed at his ability to strike a chord within me with these characters so very different in circumstance. I should re-read this.

    Whew. What a lot of work. Oddly I have no appetite and am struggling to eat. The only thing that seems tempting is fruit. I ate a plum, an apricot, and some raspberries. Ate some beef although it was slightly repulsive for some reason. I have no loss of energy and am not tired.

    I am so happy about my new place even though it is kind of overwhelming. I was going over numbers in my head - it is hard to believe that it is HALF what I am paying now. I have HALVED my monthly expenses. I have to knuckle down and pay off a couple of bills and get ahead. What a terrific opportunity I have ahead of me!

    The first thing I did in my new home is hang my artwork. I have a few paintings that are not valuable but I treasure them and I love to look at them. My new place actually has an 'art wall' since it was designed partly to be an artist studio. It is covered in that burlap-type material that is perfect for hanging pictures. It looks wonderful.

    I have moved most of my clothes and still have a closet left. I have a ridiculous number of clothes. I have to cut down. New rule: when I buy a new piece, I have to get rid of a piece. That should really go for everything!

    Slept like a rock. Actually like two rocks. After working all day, I wanted to read and relax a little. I'm deep in the YA series Warriors by Erin Hunter. It's a bit silly premise, but I am really enjoying it. I understand it is quite popular, especially with boys. I hope so, I like that a lot as many really good ideas and morals are explored in the books. And it really ties in with a lot of the reading about paleolithic times that I have been doing. Anyway, I finished the book and slept for four hours, woke up at 4 AM - wide awake. Thought I should get up and start working again, but just didn't - I was probably awake for over an hour. Then I slept again for 3 hours or so. Okay, NOW it is time to get up and start working!

    Not hungry at all.

    Just weighed myself as I put the scale into a box - 147 lbs! Guess I've been doing a lot of slow movement!

    Hi Siobhan! Hope your move goes well! Yay! on 147lbs! One day maybe I will hit that too! I haven't caught up on your journal - just a few pages but so nice to be back. I too love CS Lewis, heaven alone knows how many times I have read the Narnia series... I have never gotten around to reading many of his other books and think I should start doing that again.

    So happy for you that you have found this place, how wonderful to be able to pay off debt and get on top of expenses etc! Our business has picked up over the last couple of months and we are paying off debt as fast as we can - absolutely HATE being in debt but when you have no income that is what happens Have a lovely day!

    Good for you! How much have you lost altogether?

    Nice to be in a new place, isn't it, especially when there are so many positives involved. And if you don't want to believe in personal providence being involved, I'll just believe it for you.

    I've been unhungry the last couple of days too, for no particular reason that I can see. I'm making a point of eating anyway, because I've decided that pushing my body is unwise, but I don't rush to eat breakfast and my helpings have been small. So I'm skinnifying, despite everything. I like to run with it when my body is in the mood, and when it isn't, I just try to hold the line. Such a stress-free way of losing weight...

    I think I have lost 20 lbs., but I'm not sure where I started. I don't think I weighed myself at the start; it was too stressful! It will be 12 weeks on Sunday. I'm pretty shocked at this much weight loss. I would have thought 10-12 lbs. more in line with how much I eat. Looking over my food journal on paleotrack, I have averaged 1800 calories a day. I would think that is more of a maintenance plan rather than a loss plan. I have had a few days where I didn't eat much, but on SAD that wouldn't have counted for anything.

    I'm going through some clothes and discarding lots of them - lots of pants that not only are too big, they won't even stay up.

    I think I've found a drink that I like to replace kombucha, which is too expensive and not very available - selzer water, apple cider vinegar, and stevia. I worry about overdoing stevia, but I'm a worrier. I don't use any other sweetener or sugar and I only use one packet a day.

    I can't wait to see my debts melt away! They are already melting a little. In a year I should be debt-free, God-willing-and-the-creek-don't-rise. I feel much better about everything. This place is so inexpensive that even if I got laid off, (God forbid) I could afford it with unemployment until I found something else. With all the whisperings at the hospital, I can just heave a great sigh of relief. We had a lay-off a few weeks ago, no clinicians, all admin, but bigger things are coming. They might close our other hospital, which frankly they should. I hate to think of people losing their jobs, but that place is sucking the life out of the organization - that whole "needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" thing. Twenty people can lose their jobs or 300 can lose their jobs. Not really a difficult decision. And some of those people can retire, or they can come work in our facility, or one of the long-term care facilities.

    Back to clothes sorting!

    Keep forgetting to add that I started having hot flashes a couple of weeks ago. No period this month. The hot flashes aren't too bad but I could happily live without them. They do wake me at night which is the worst thing. Actually I think the worst thing is that the hot flash is followed by a "cold flash" as the heat fades and leaves me sweaty and chilled. Lucky I don't smell any more!
