I'm now weighing in at 229, the first of many mini-milestones and psychological markers in my weight loss journey - except I'm hesitant to use the word "journey" because half of you are so damn literal you'll ask me what town I'm going to! (Spea... Read more

So far so good. One pound per week. I seem to have already lost some around the waist, but at this point I could be just imagining it! I certainly feel better. I continue to make good nutritional and exercise choices. The walking really seems to... Read more

I'm headed up to Olympia tomorrow for an early Xmas with my family (both my sister and I have to work on Christmas - she's in health care and I'm in travel). My main challenge is not to overindulge, of course. Equal time will be my guideline: he... Read more

Got a nice back up pair of glasses before my insurance changes over. We're getting new insurance at the start of the year, so this allows me to get both glasses and new supply of contacts. I was unemployed for the longest time, and insurance is ... Read more

Second "dam" weigh-in with no change this morning, although my scale is being passive-aggressive. When I cheated during the week it showed I'd lost the intended pound, but now that I 'm on record, it put it back. Thanks a heap. I'm getting... Read more
