I can't even believe I am back here. I lost weight. I gained weight. I lost weight. I gained more weight. And on and on and on. I'm now at my highest weight ever. Beyond anything I could have imagined. How did... Read more

I'm back. A little healthier in some ways. In others ways, not so much. I am perpetually losing the same 20 pounds it seems. I would say "This time I'm committed" but you've read that before. I did the Whole 30 program last fall... Read more

After spending the past 5 years trying to exercise and ending up with a very messed up back, I made a major decision. I had breast reduction surgery. Although my insurance has originally denied it, I am confident that they will change thei... Read more

I'm still here. In April, my husband and I ran into some friends and noticed they had lost a substantial amount of weight. When we asked what they were doing they shared that they were taking HCG. Then we asked 2 more people who had los... Read more

I saw a statistic that said people eat more on SuperBowl Sunday than Thanksgiving. Yep. I can affirm that statistic. Looks like salads and brown rice all week for me. Ugh. I feel sick.... Read more

When I first started my career as a financial advisor 15 years ago, I shared an office with a guy who, in the first hour of meeting me asked "You aren't one of those perky, postive attitude people, are you? I hate those kind of people" To whic... Read more

I really hope I can lose 6 pounds in 24 hours, so I can enter my 40's under 200 lbs! How did this happen? The good thing, I'm excited about the new era, so to speak. I'm gradually running. I learned to swim. We're biking more. Call... Read more

I am somewhat stuck on my swimming, but I have to say, I learned to swim before my 40th birthday. Yeah me. I interviewed some students for my alumni association (informational) and they were great kids. We went to the drive-in with th... Read more

I am going to try and upload a photo. Why on earth do people with straight hair seem obsessed with straightening curly hair? I LIKE my curly hair. A lot. My hair looks ridiculous straight. And yes, in 40 years, I've tried it. I know. ... Read more
