I’m feeling great in this moment on the mountain. A last minute decision results in a bonus hike and a bonus episode.

Podcast Recap

I thank our Veterans for their service then muse about the unexpected benefits of mindfulness.

I take a few minutes to feel good by the pool. I just had fun splashing in the water and am warming in the sun. I’m not thinking of my size – just enjoying the sensations.

Podcast Recap

Letting go of being motivated from the outside. Reviewing my rage at size prejudice – e.g., the Simpson’s latest episode. A sample of my latest character voice work as a bulldog as requested by Sue from the UK and Suz. Cheryl has Foolish Fun introducing us to Penelope, her inner insomniac.

Waves in distance, beach and large rocks in foreground

Here’s a shot of the rocks I sit on when I record at Ventura

The wind whips my hair around like crazy as I’m sitting on my podcast rock here at the beach in Ventura.

Blue skies, pond in sandy beach dotted with birds, green hills in back

It was so hot, and I feel SO much more comfortable in my body, even at its current size, I wore shorts to the park in front of God and everybody!

Podcast Recap

That darn scale, I still can’t keep myself off of it every morning! How can I get over this bad habit? The truth about my former weight maintenance methods and how intuitive eating differs. Shout-outs to Alen Standish for his kindness in providing me a quick way to get ALL countries’ iTunes reviews and to Cheryl for giving Alen’s show a try and for posting a comment to him. Why I so appreciate how you brave companions support me and each other. Hello from new brave companion Helen, brava to brave companion Monica from Australia for stepping up to say hi to us, and we hear from one of the original brave companions, Crystal, who gets back in touch and highly deserves her place on today’s bravery report! More about money and my adventures with Amazon. Finally, Insomnia drives a wedge in my progress and we do an experiment to identify fullness in our tummies and guts.

It’s hard to take a flattering selfie to show your bravery wearing shorts to the park on a hot day. BUT I feel really good here, tummy and all. I wore my shorts and nobody passed out in horror. In fact, NOBODY noticed at all. Great step for me.
