Tuesday, January 02, 2018      1 comments

I am now on day 2 of my Baby Steps Challenge and, to be honest, it isn't really that hard. Then again, it shouldn't be, should it? I have been on this track for a very long time, over 25 years in it shouldn't be hard. Sure, there are ... Read more

As usual, I am ending the year more or less the same weight as I started it. As I am at goal, most of the time, and my weight is within the 5lb allowance that weight watchers gives me, I'm OK. However, I am very close to the limit of that 5lb... Read more
Week 1 Complete

From a weight loss/healthy living perspective, I had a wonderful year. Usually I start the year at around 152/153 lbs and finish maybe 1 or 2 lbs lighter. I'll have lost around 5 or 6 lbs during the year but they will have all gone back on in ... Read more

Day 18. Do you have a go-to meal for days when you have to be on the go, no time to stop to eat and no refrigeration/cooler available? Thankfully, days where I am on the go and can't eat at home or at work are very few and far between. Un... Read more
