WooHoo! Glad to see that line on the graph starting to trend downward. This coming week is the hardest possible week for weight loss, for me, so if I can maintain I'd be more than happy. Going to see NP on 1/16 so I'd like to see progress by the... Read more
Today I got back into yoga after 2 days off. I'm so excited about my new app called "yoga studio" and my new Bluetooth style speaker so I can hear the instructor without earbuds & wires. I did my first class, and was almost able to keep up. A fe... Read more
I am going to weigh myself in the next day or 2, so I will have an answer to this, but I don't know how my weight is responding to tracking consistently and exercising 150 minutes a week. My weight has been bouncing around, going down sometimes... Read more
