New Year, New Stuff

Hey folks. I'm not one for New Year's resolutions, but I will be keeping my blog updated at least once a week or so in 2007.....really.

So...here's something fun. Get a copy of the January 2007 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine....open to page 179 and....it's me! I wrote "Lisa R's Diet Diary" over the course of late summer and early fall 2006, when I had the privilege of being counseled by O Magazine's life coach guru, Martha Beck (who I had long admired as a writer, beginning with her exquisite pregnancy memoir Expecting Adam). Martha tried to help me understand my weight loss-weight gain cycle and eating behaviors...read Martha's article (on p. 174) first to get your bearings. [Hers is online, mine is in the print magazine only]. Martha's new book, The Four Day Win, is due out in a week or so; it's "dieting" for the I-refuse-to-be-deprived set.

Lots of other things happening as well....kids with broken bones...losing my beloved father...finishing the first semester of my creative nonfiction MFA program...but I'll let you all in on the details a little at a time. Meanwhile, happy new year to all.
