The week is going well! The scale is improbably tending down even though I'm in the throes of TOM. The first two days were rough but I'm feeling a lot better today. Hopefully, it will be smooth sailing (and weight loss!) from here on out. On... Read more

My Secret Weapon

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      11 comments

The last two days have been less than ideal nutritionally. Fatty foods. Refined carbohydrates. Sweets. But for the first time ever, I realize, it's going to be okay. Because I am moving towards my goal. And in order to meet my goal, I ... Read more
