Today is the last day of the first official week of school here...and we've survived! Almost! School will be out at 3 pm, and I'm sure my kids will be tired. They've had a great first week though--so that's what counts. It's nice to start t... Read more

I was feeling surprisingly unmotivated this morning--surprising, because I actually got 7 straight hours of sleep last night (a rare feat for me...usually I don't get more than 5 or 6 hours of sleep, sometimes less).

I flew with my kids to Fargo, North Dakota, last weekend to see my 95-year-old grandma (their great-grandma, duh). And I was worried, because I knew I'd be eating out EVERY NIGHT...at my uncle's restaurant, the Spitfire.

Ok, so I've felt good for the last 8 or 9 months. I reached my goal weight & then some. I've MAINTAINED that weight now for close to a year. And I have a bit of a swelled head I suppose...and today it swelled bigger.

It's Easier To Be Fat
