    Ep 0180 – Our Future is 2020!

    I brave unusual snowcapped peaks and winter weather to ponder past blessings and challenges as we look toward our future in 2020. I share my professional video game demo. BC Joy has a great idea! How to join our new secret and private FB group. We meet our newest BC, Geert, who posted on the infamous Pathetic Day 4. A special message to a new private BC. I recommend a course on Insight Timer by Andrea Wachter. Mark shares what he's learned this past decade and what he's looking forward to in 2020. Today's dance moment features a relaxing and beautiful tune called Falling Snow.

    Ep 0179 – Magical Journey of Food and Life

    Hiking is out due to fires in California, so I'm back pondering at Descanso Gardens about the mystical, magical journey that is the food cycle of life. We hear from our very first BC, my friend Cheryl, about her health concerns and her writing dreams. BC North also stops by to comment. BC Dave updates us on the ups and downs of his life and health and how meditation might help. We say hello to two new friends, BCs Joy and Carol M. I share a snippet from my latest blog post about being a senior plus-sized model and ask for more subscribers to my youtube channel for voice acting. Today's dance moment features an energetic ditty called Mud Pie.

    Ep 0176 – Bonus – Gifts, Mics and Vegan Zombies

    Gifts can be a blessing or a curse! I ponder how gifts impact us and how it relates to my food issues. One gift I truly enjoy is the ability to record today's bonus episode with a cool new mic my friend loaned me. I'm mic shopping and it makes a difference to hear them in your own studio. Today's featured song, Vegan Zombies, comes from our old friend, Josh Woodward.

Amazing podcast

Hey Laurie (and listeners). Here’s Sarah from the UK. I’m so grateful for your podcasts! I discovered you only about ten days ago and I’m working my way through episode by episode. I’m still in 2014 so I don’t know how your journey develops but already I am benefiting from your honesty and warmth of feeling! Thanks so much Sarah x

Thankful from the UK

On Monday (surprise, surprise) I decided to make a change. In the last 10 years I have battled with my weight, losing as much as 8 stone (112 lbs) in 6 months only to put it all back on again and more. Over December 2018 I moved up a gear into a whole new level of overeating, I have sunk into such a hole that I was beginning to fear I mightn’t be able to climb out of it again. I was feeling resigned to the fact that I would have to go back to slimming world again for the 4th or 5th time in 3 years and that in itself was pushing me to binge......so I decided to try something new. Set a few simple goals like ‘eat when you are hungry’ and ‘drink water’ I’ve started writing a daily journey to put my thoughts down on paper and having a new view on things.
I’m so happy that I typed ‘overeating’ into the iTunes search bar.
I have an evening cleaning job where I listen to podcasts for 2 hours every week night and this is something I’ve been hoping for. I’ve already listened to the first 4 podcasts and I can’t wait to listen to more tomorrow night. I’m so looking forward to hearing your journey. Some of the things you have said so far have almost made me weep because it’s so lovely to know I’m not alone. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Keep it up. I can’t wait to see where your journey takes you. Lots of love from a little village called Rusthall in Royal Tunbridge Wells UK. Xxx Louise xxx
