I did not do well on my goals last month. I actually did pretty well on the walking/biking goal, but not on any of the rest. This month I am making it more simple and only concentrating on the 2 things I find the hardest to do.

Back to Basics
My Medifast idea was a bust. I couldn't stick with it. I love normal food too much.

My first day of Lent went well, in that I did everything I intended to do. I ate only healthy food, and it was not quite as hard as I thought it would be. I felt really good about myself. Then I went to church with my son (my husband is sick ... Read more
Once again, I am resolving to eat no junk food for Lent this year. It's hard to do, but I did pretty well with it last year and lost quite a bit of weight too. One difference I'm making this year is that I want to keep it up after Lent, since ... Read more
