So I learned this weekend that if you only have 10 pounds or less to lose you should not try for more that 1/2 pound a week. No wonder I have been struggling. My body was telling me no way and I wondered why I was fighting myself so much. Well f... Read more

I have gained a few pound back. I am reading The Spark now. Slowly, but getting inspired by it so far. I liked the part that said something like What goes on in your head is more important than what goes into your mouth. Stopping a downward spir... Read more
