A look back...and a smile for today.
Rough week. March 8, 2004 my mama died. March 9, 2012 my DH's best friend (Dozer) died. The weekend was a blur of unhealthy choices, and a good amount of depression. A dear friend cared enough for me to actually talk to me about it all and pr... Read more
Still time to make goal.....
When the goal is close enough to feel, I blow it. I changed my profile pic today and saw that last Nov. I weighed what I weigh today. WTF? So once again, I will try to surrender my mind to what I know is right for me. I would REALLY REALLY R... Read more
10 pounds to go.......with ALL my senses intact.
Ok I'm a little PO'd at myself, no A LOT!! I ignore my signals to myself....really I must be daft. I got to 139 (my goal) then decided it wasn't a safe goal, so my new goal is 132. Why is it I've had to bounce around 139 so many times this ye... Read more

Starting Week 5.......
Wow, it's going kinda quick. I really want to be down another 7-10 pounds at the end of the 6 weeks - and I'm realizing that won't happen. Then we go off to vacation and I hope and pray it doesn't all come back. DH was nice this morning, said... Read more

If at first you don't succeed......
This will be my 3rd organized effort to try a plan I didn't dream up on my own. Hopefully I will be ready to start the 6wbmo on Sunday. I feel like I'm cramming for an exam with all the materials. Even if I don't agree with it all, I can say ... Read more
