My sewing machine died today

My goal for 2012
I have been lucky to maintain my loss until the holidays, and have about 3 or 4 pounds to get back off, plus a few more to get to my goal weight. I decided to set my goal like this. If I stay within my calorie range, I walk the 1-mile, but if I ... Read more

2. Reach my goal weight by May for my class reunion... Read more
