Day One - Reality Check
Well, I know Suz said we can start this on Wednesday, but why put off any longer? Most of 2012 has been me putting off, and I only have myself to blame for that.

Going Extreme...DAY 5
Well--today is day 5 of my new approach to losing the weight. And so far, things seem to be clicking into place.

Making Progress (Impatience revisited)
To a large extent, I think my impatiences has been due to not seeing the progress I've been making. You know--have a real good drop of weight, then hang there for a while, not seeing the change in body shape, etc. Add to that being emotionally... Read more
Right now, just trying to fight off the impatience bug. I'm holding my own, and gaining some ground.

2. Weight loss - Yes, I am losing..... Read more
The Big 70
Today brought a welcome sight.

Been d... Read more
