I'm not sure why I do this but my best ideas come at night when I'm trying to sleep. I will have the positive "can-do" attitude that seems to fade by morning's time. I have the ability to make elaborate and extensive plans and goals for my futur... Read more

You know what child rearing and weight loss have in common? This isn't a joke by the way. They both have way to many, conflicting information. I remember when I had my first born, my grandmother told me to listen to myself because babies don't c... Read more

I have been doing great. Working out, keeping my food log and staying within my calories. So naturally, I can't let that go unchallenged. That just wouldn't be my way...right? Well, I made the mistake of going to the store hungry. I bought froze... Read more

I had a dream last night. I dreamed I was on my couch watching reruns of Smallville (guilty pleasure of mine) with a blanket over me. Feeling hot, I threw the blanket off onto the floor. I almost followed it. I looked down at my legs and saw....... Read more

As I look back at my blogs, very few if any are inspirational or positive. This will be no different. I have gained 40 of the 50lbs I lost last year. I have prayed and made all attempts to find out what it is that I am not happy about that I wan... Read more
