I have 5 cats. I did not start out to be the crazy cat lady, it just sort of happened gradually without my noticing, kind of like my extra weight. But I take care of them so I don't qualify yet for an episode of Animal Hoarders, or whatever th... Read more
Per the scale this morning I am now down by 15 pounds! WooHoo! And officially in the 180s. 5 pounds left to go down a BMI level to merely "overweight". Next week I take measurements & I've been sleeping pretty good.

I picked up my dry cleaning this afternoon and tried on my size 16 slacks. They no longer fit! Oh, I could still wear them in a pinch, they aren't falling down to my knees but they are visibly big.
Time to pull out the 14s and retire the ... Read more

I hate them with a passion, I always have, I always will. I hate them more than running, more than hot dogs, more than my ex-husband. But I'm up to 16 now, more than I could do 2 months ago. I still hate them though. ... Read more
My first day back to the office after 3 weeks of vacation, and only 10 days into SP, and one of my coworkers brings in a big bag of miniature candybars to share. If I didn't know better I'd think she was out to get me LOL. But I managed to res... Read more
