What's in YOUR diet?
My diet (I use the regular term as everyone follows a diet, this is for my life, it isn't temporary) doesn't have a lot of "restrictions." My mind doesn't do well with restrictions. I do, however, have LIMITS.

Moving on up... or down, actually!
I admit, I SUCK at weighing in. I forget to do it first thing in the morning, I end up doing it after I eat, or drink or whatever, and because of that, it isn't really ever accurate, though I have trends. (This is better than it was before, be... Read more
