On December 10, my house was broken into. Fortunately, my husband, my cat, and I are all safe. It's been a rather traumatic event. The burglars stole my laptop, iPad, jewelry, camera, and Christmas presents. I'm also afraid that they stole ... Read more

Dear Firecrackers: As you know, my husband and I went sailing up along Lake Huron and into Canada for almost a whole month! When I left, I thought I would be able to keep up with the challenge by accessing the internet when we came into port. ... Read more

What I used to do when I was at goal weight...

Sunday, November 03, 2013      3 comments

I have battled with my weight all of my life. Being thin was never easy for me, so the few times in my life when I was thin was something that I had to work really hard for. As I struggle again to get my weight down, I thought back to a time w... Read more

I know it can be done!

Sunday, March 31, 2013      1 comments

Last night I went to bed hungry. I ate a reasonable portion for dinner, skipped the cookies and the candy, and didn't have any of the wine that other people were drinking. That, along with getting back to my workouts this week, really paid off... Read more

Sunday, March 03, 2013      3 comments

Summer is rapidly approaching and again I find myself yo-yoing within the same 2 pound range. I really have to get down to business if I'm going to be closer to my goal for summer. I've had to modify my goal weight yet again because I can't se... Read more

Fall down seven times; get up eight!

Sunday, December 02, 2012      4 comments

Okay, so I have been working out everyday, sometimes twice a day, even during the end of the semester list of things to do. But I haven't been tracking my food. I figured since I eat the same things all the time, it shouldn't matter, right? W... Read more
