ASK MERRILY/Can’t Lose Weight
Sep 21,2009

I am a 55 year old female and just can't seem to lose weight. I know you are supposed to “eat to live,” but I “live to eat!” My life is very busy, and I eat on the run. My day starts at 4:30 a.m. with housecleaning.

My grandchildren have 3 grandmothers. The other 2 love to go shopping and buy just-wonderful things for the kids. My daughter knows I disapprove of swamping children with trendy toys and clothes, but she loves it all.

ASK MERRILY/Terror and the Ego
Jul 30,2009

Interesting times. Yesterday I walked in the woods and got gripped with the first bonafide terror I've felt since accepting a buyout and applying for a new job in another part of the country. It was strong and frightening, but I am not backing away. I need to do this.
