Wednesday, June 29, 2016      10 comments

For years, I have enjoyed a chopped chicken salad at a small chain restaurant in town called Granite City. Yesterday after the Mammo, I suggested we go there. It's hard to guesstimate calories or WW points on restaurant food, but if the restaura... Read more

I correspond regularly (via e-mail) with a cousin of Du's dad's. I think she puts out a generic e-mail, then personalizes it to several relatives, but I always send her a personal reply, with lots of pictures. I like to write, so I enjoy our cor... Read more

I was all set to write a blog today about the joys of losing weight. And then Orlando happened. Such horror. But let's start with the JOY! I was unprepared for how good it feels to be normal sized, it had been so many years since I was anyw... Read more
