Things are going pretty good. I can't complain too much really. I am pretty confident that I will meet my goal weight when I weigh in on Tuesday. I'm delayed a day since I am off for Labor Day. I was 148 on our home scale this morning... an... Read more

Just because of my failed success of a recipe... Somehow this morning I ended up on YouTube looking a a clip from a German cooking website (I really don't know quite how)... the lady was making a tasty-looking pastry with a Quark & vanilla ... Read more

This has been a hard week for keeping up the exercise... just feeling a bit of burnout I guess. I've also been pretty tired all week. I have gone 133 days straight... I've proven a lot to myself. 133 days has meant to me: --I can stay c... Read more

This is the most awake I have felt all week. I haven't exercised nearly as much as I would have liked and I have been just exhausted. Part of it has been staying up to watch the Olympics (bad choice) and part of it is simply not having enough ... Read more

I feel really blessed since I have barely plateaued in the entire course of my weight loss. It's almost like my body has been waiting for me to get a clue and just DO IT. Come to think of it, my mother was NEVER overweight... she was 5-2 and t... Read more

I had a great day again today... got out and mowed the lawn and then went grocery shopping with hubby. We bought some inexpensive but decent little pedometers at Wally World... I'm fed up with the hypersensitive, non customizable ones from the ... Read more
