Everything was wonderful, and the wedding was amazing. It was a simple ceremony and just perfect. We both cried... Read more

Feeling Good....and Bad.
I broke into 180-ville today and am very happy about that.

I've been off the wagon for a few days...and not only does the scale show it, but I feel it.

It's smaller arms, one less roll on my tummy, and way less back fat.
It's a wedding dress that desperately needs alteration since there's not enough left to hold it up.

I'm not hungry, but.....
I LIKE TO EAT!
I work in a nursing home, and there are snacky yummy-looking foods everywhere. It's so tough to not give in to the temptation of just one sweet, or it's only a little bag of chips.
Even with brining healthy snacks, I s... Read more
