The totally shame-free, actual-life, real-time blog where I tell all, show all--without nagging or whining (all right--maybe a little whining...)--in my attempt to stop being a fat middle-aged woman who avoids mirrors and clothing stores and start being a woman at home in her body...brought to you by a real woman, the Independent Weltha Herself. I won't give any advice, and I'm not asking for any--just companionship on my journey.

Every day...a new post. Every other real weight. Every pictures.

For every woman who has ever tried to just lose the extra weight and feel good...overall and about herself...and who lived to tell the story.

Day the 6th

Saturday afternoon, Saturday afternoon--two of the most beautiful words in the English language.

Particularly here, where the sky is so blue today and the air is like wine--not crisp yet but cool and fragrant.

Today...I got Baba Ghanoush--and I had forgotten how garlicky it is, so I have breath that could fend off vampires, but it was so good. I am not "counting calories" [shudder] but I eat enough to not be hungry, and I am eating really good things.

Later, off to Pei Wei (the fast-food version of P. F. Chang) for edamame and salad. Tomorrow is Big Choir Day with lunch brought in by our Choirmaster and then a cocktail party with nibbles at his house afterwards. Looking forward to Monday's post about that.

Yes, bought those little walking shoes--the ones with the curved bottom that are supposed to be so good for you, and I'm trying them out this evening. And of course, the rebounder lurks in the living room...

Readers, you are the biggest motivation, the greatest fun that I have ever had in trying to eat right. Even though we have had no comments for a few days, I feel like you are cheering me on.

So...comments? Encouragement? Shout-outs? Ray-rahs? Thanks for letting me drive this bus while you lean back and enjoy the ride...




  1. I'm going for a twilight walk tonight with friends. go Weltha!

  2. you go, Weltha. Me- I'm going for a twilight walk tonight with friends.

  3. Let us know how you like those funny curved-bottom shoes. I think they are interesting but am afraid I would tip over forwards or backwards. Maybe the extra balance-keeping is the point?


Thanks for havin' your say! You're an INDEPENDENT WOMAN (or an INDEPENDENT MAN!), too! Just remember, this is an ADVICE-FREE please send the advice back to its room, and PLEASE comment about what you've done or just join in the ray-rah!
