One less link in the chain
Okay, so last Spring I made a paper chain with thirty links to represent the thirty pounds I want to lose. Those thirty links have sat on the wall. Only I know what they are for. They are in my office next to my classroom. None of my student... Read more

8.5 inches gone!
So, the scale hasn't budged. Oh sure, a pound down, a pound back up, but no great movement. Today I finally got around to measuring myself. I knew that my jeans felt looser but did not think that I had lost 3.5 inches from my hips! 8.5 inche... Read more
Okay, something has to change! I am getting lots of walking in even though it is tough to even get to 8,000 steps in a day, but I am challenging myself to do it. Two months ago it was hard to get 4,000 steps a day, so there is definite improve... Read more

Well, I do my best exercise by just walking around, so I was bummed that none of my pedometers worked anymore. Then I thought, "Hey, they have apps for everything else, why can't I get a pedometer app?". Sure enough, there's an app for that! N... Read more

So, I set up my cat scan yesterday and had it this morning. When I was scheduling it, the lady doing the scheduling ask me my weight. I rounded to 250 because I hadn't weighed myself in a few days. She sounded shocked that I weighed that much... Read more
