Caution: Your clothes can make you look larger than you are!
I look like a frump in my all my dress pants and when I glance in the mirror I feel like one too.

I finally got back on the elliptical the other day. It was a difficult 10 minutes. It should not have been a surprise considering my lack of exercise in months.

Yikes eating too many carbs!
I'm addicted to bad carbohydrates. This is bad, very very bad.
Yesterday morning I decided I would not eat one bite of carbs. I was okay until about 2:00 p.m. Then I gave in. Uh-o! I couldn't stop. I ate all afternoon, evening and ... Read more
If you build it, they will come.
Our house has a guest room. Since we moved here, we've had guests stay with us constantly, some for weeks, some for months. They all bring different energies to our home.

Warning: Being overweight can lead to diabetes!
I ignored all the warnings of how being overweight can lead to diabetes.....
