If you get the sense that things have been a little slow here at the Not Done Yet Blog, there’s a good reason.

You can find us here:


And chances are, you’ll also spot some of your favorite NDY blogs over there!

Speaking of not being done yet – we aren’t done by the longest shot. We invite you to join us on this new adventure and share your stories, strategies and insights on how you embrace life with all the gusto you gots!

With Love and Loads of Awesomelicious Appreciation,

Kimi and Dexter

Won Day

“Write down the one piece of wisdom that you wish you knew when you started.”

One? Are you kidding me, Bobbi?* I had to start a blog to keep track of all the stuff that I wish I knew when I started. Mostly so I wouldn’t forget it as we moved through the process.

One is easy. So here’s what I wrote down… Continue Reading →

Lose Weight While You Sleep!

No, no. This isn’t one of those kinds of discussions. I do not have a magic potion that will melt off the pounds during sleep.

If I did, I’d be labeling and bottling that stuff like crazy, right after securing my personal lifetime stash.

Let me clarify: We need to sleep to lose weight.

Intrigued? So was I. Follow me for the remarkable research. Continue Reading →

Peer Positive

I don’t want to do this.

No, really.  I don’t want to do this.

I don’t want to weigh in one more time. I don’t want to track my food intake. I don’t want to exercise. I may not even want to dance.

I certainly don’t want to run.


But they’re waiting for me. And I like all those people so much. And if I don’t show up…

So I go. And for some bizarre reason, the simple act of showing up suddenly makes me want to do all those things that, 20 minutes ago, I was trying to avoid like the plague.

Not only do I now want to do it, I’m happy to do it with a smile on my face.

Why do other people — positive people — have the ability to make me do things I don’t want to do?

It’s a mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma…

Two Weeks in South Beach

After a recent vacation in beautiful Florida, I started looking for a little spark to get rid of the extra pounds I picked up while away. Given that I had just been in South Florida, and I love trying new things, I decided to give the South Beach Diet a try.

SBDLogoI set the following guidelines for myself:

(1) Follow “Phase 1” of South Beach for the full two weeks

(2) Count my WW Points while doing so, with a goal of staying in the “reducing” range of points vs. the maintenance range

(3) Blog about the experience and the results

So here we go…

False Eyelashes for Fumblers (like me)

Yeah, okay, so this is a little off topic for our blog, and I doubt that Dexter is terribly interested in this post. So, fellas, look away. Ladies, have I got a good one for you.

Long eyelashes are the latest fashion accessory, and like other sorts of natural endowments, nature chose not to bestow bounty upon me in the eyelash department. I’m not really prepared to go the Latisse route due to the expense. So, I started hunting around for  Latisse-like results without the requirements of doctor visits and pricey prescriptions.

Found it! Follow me…. Continue Reading →

Happy Trails to You: The Joy of Trail Running

One of the most exciting things about losing weight and getting healthy is how it has opened doors to opportunity for physical activities that I would have never thought possible. Basically, I have discovered that Sir Isaac Newton was right. A body in motions tends to stay in motion.

However, not only does it stay in motion, it begins to seek out new life and new civilizations…. Continue Reading →
