Woohoo! It's been only a week since I bought, with hope, a pair of size 14 jeans in the same style and brand as the larger ones I gave up. Last week they zipped--barely--much like the other pair when I bought them. One week, half a pound, and... Read more

Saturday, January 14, 2012      8 comments

I just read the article "5 Reasons to Get Rid of Your Skinny Jeans". While I can see that keeping clothes from ages past that aren't realistic for the new healthy you you're on your way to becoming, I find the opposite is true for me. Most of ... Read more
