My brother loves the show "Storage Wars." The doctor has said it would be good to have something to do to occupy your time - helps with depression. So he thought it would be neat to try to do something like the Storge War guys. We found an au... Read more

Monday, May 07, 2012      3 comments

I hadn't lost anything in the last couple of weeks and was getting a little discouraged (although not nearly as much as I would have back in the day). But this morning I did lose another pound! Whew! So I'm down 35 since the first of March. ... Read more
