It's Texas cold--i.e. low 30s, but it really zaps my energy to get out and run. I attempted my daily run this morning and barely made it for 1.5 miles. This really frustrates me because I know I can do better! Yesterday I ran 3.5 miles and di... Read more

Well, I have finally reached another mini goal and now it is making me self conscious. I wanted my weightloss to be noticeable, but now people are coming by asking, "How much weight have you lost?" or "What are you doing, did you stop eating?" ... Read more

Well, I went to my doctor this morning. It's been three months to the day and I kind of went in bracing myself for bad news. I knew I had lost several inches but I haven't seen the need for a new wardrobe. Imagine my shock when she was review... Read more
