I prefer to *imagine* how my butt looks... (embarrassing pic)
Oh heavens to Betsy. We just returned from a wonderful family vacation in the Bahamas. We stayed at Atlantis, surrounded by 10,000 fit people in bikinis, and despite the extra pounds padding my mid-section, I wore mine too. (Nora Ephron said to ... Read more
I was so full of marlarkey when I called it a "hiatus"...
Ok, so my last post (almost a full year ago) had me disappointed with ONLY being able to fit into my skinny jeans, and not seeing any movement on the scale. I remember how it felt -- disappointing to get on that scale every week and see 149.

It moved! The number on the scale moved!
I know that the scale is just a tool, and that I should not endlessly focus on those numbers. At least this is my mantra as I get up every morning, take it all off and stand on that cold glass surface, waiting for the verdict. In my head, I pick... Read more
It's hard not being Angelina Jolie. My first (micro)blog.
I was thinking: I'm a busy lady. Two kids, a business, a family, mountains of laundry, and a month or so ago, a BMI that was needling toward the "Obese" category. It's no mystery how I got here, and as much as I'd like an easy-to-forgive excuse ... Read more
