On Tuesday I conquered the Silver Sneakers exercise class. Well, that’s using the term loosely, as I already wrote about how those “seniors” kicked my butt! Today was hard, too, but it was good. Yesterday was pool day. I have been lookin... Read more

Remember that old TV show called "My Three Sons?" Simpler times and a peek into the life that some of the early TV writers must have thought we would all seek to achieve. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I'm going to blog about, but m... Read more

Did you ever wonder "why me?" I've fallen into that trap so many times it isn't funny. Why am I the fat one who can't say no to that extra serving of the yummy dessert? Why do I have to be the one who has to shop in the plus size section of the... Read more

Okay...maybe I can get into this blogging stuff. No promises...the jury is still out on that one. But, for today I think I'll write about my personal nemesis: evening eating. It might be really brief. Not much to say that hasn't already been sa... Read more

Just an update to my last blog about honesty. Not only did I not follow through, but I've added pounds and consequently, more work to do. Today I updated my weight, got a starting weight for my team's challenge, and put it all out there. Frust... Read more
