Well, I searched and searched and only found one entry on SparkPeople with a mention to the Belly Melt Diet. This doesn't give me a lot of hope for it's success. I'm on day #2 of it and I'm really struggling. It's not that I'm looking for ... Read more

Today I had an amazing moment. For the first time in almost 7 years, I am in the normal weight for my height on the BMI scale. I know that weight is a number and doesn't mean everything - but this was truly a momumental day for me and I am ecs... Read more

For many years now I have avoided those video camera displays at the store. I look up and am shocked at the fat woman on the screen. They say the camera adds 10 pounds! ugh! My husband and I have been working so hard at eating right and exe... Read more

Got on the scale this morning – 173.7 – UGH! Just last month I was under 170 but with the Halloween candy binge of 2007 and Josh’s birthday cake that is all shot to hell. Last night I started training for my marathon. I was able to do two mi... Read more
