Take 2 So in my last blog that I wrote many moons ago, I said I was happy with myself, happy with the choices I was making, and didn’t really feel motivated to try much harder. I’m still quite happy with myself, but I have not been making the healthiest choices lately… I haven’t exercised regularly since Thanksgiving and I don’t think I said “no” to any Christmas goodie that was available.

We had three days together to go shopping, hang out, etc. My mom has had gastric bypass surgery and has lost significant weight. So now we can't just go to Lane Bryant like we used to, we have to go to stores that carry her new skinny sizes also. Old Navy seems like the perfect compromise since our local store has started carrying plus sizes as well. <BR> <BR> First let me just say how excited I was when our local Old Navy started ca...
