Extreme Weight Changes
April 8, 2011 (up 1)
A normal adjustment to the huge loss (2.4 lbs) reported yesterday, but I was so pleased to see that I had still lost overall. I had aches and stiffness after yesterday’s 2 ½ hour hike. I was so out of shape and the climb... Read more
April 5, 2011 (down 1.2)
