This has really been an issue lately, where I eat very carefully and controlled during the day and then go beyond my calorie range in the evening - not by that much, but by enough to stop me from losing. I try to leave about 300 calories after d... Read more

It's been mentioned that I've been absent lately. I do come to the site and see what my friends have posted, I just haven't had much to say. I seem to be in a very introverted, homebound period here lately. I emerge every few days to go to my ex... Read more

I don't really like the corny costume setups but she did have an interesting, very Italian face. Been down with stomach virus since Saturday, but I did manage to drag myself in to the portrait group and finish this this morning. Now, back to nap... Read more
