Taking things one day at a time, for now...

Saturday, April 03, 2010      9 comments

I still don't have a PLAN, but I'm feeling better. Yesterday was my best day, eating-wise, in several weeks, even though my grand total was over 2,700 calories and my weight stayed exactly the same today. The weather was beautiful so we went to... Read more

There's something about new beginnings...a fresh start, a new chance. Especially on a Saturday morning in early spring when the sun is shining - there's just so much potential there. Today could be the day I take on the world. Do my taxes. Fi... Read more
