It's very weird, I have been in maintenance for 6 1/2 months now and am just realizing that I must have had my mother's birdlike metabolism (very fast, that is) buried under all that fat all those years. She was always tiny and moved around wit... Read more

I am proving right now that when I feel bad, I DON'T eat. We have a family crisis going on right now... a crisis that makes me question our parenting... and leaves me not knowing what to do. I went from bursting with pride in my daughter to qu... Read more

I'm on day two of the new bootcamp... the chance to win $500 is nice, but I like having a new focus and new goals too, apart from the weight loss anyway. I really did slack off the intensity over the holidays what with it being a) the holid... Read more
