and (2) I need to eat more.
This morning, the scale showed 275.6, so I made it into the 275's over the weekend! While I LOVE that, even I will ad... Read more
Scale loss 6 days in a row,
and a diet plan that has had me on EASY street..... what more could I want??
But for most people, I don't think this eating plan is easy. I couldn't do it the first several times I've tried it in the past.
Yet the diet plan hasn't chan... Read more
An even 5lbs lost in 8 days.... oh yeah, baby!
Down another 0.2 lbs this morning.....every little bit counts. It probably would've been more, but I veered off the plan just a tiny bit. Not because I was hungry or unsatisfied, but because the hardest part of any diet for me is (1) figuring ou... Read more
