That pretty much says it all. Tough times, but I'm back on-track. Just doing the best I can. Yes, it's important to learn lifelong eating habits, but there is so much that is more critical in daily life than constantly thinking of exercise an... Read more

Exercising More, and Hungrier as a Result.

Tuesday, July 07, 2009      5 comments

Thursday, July 02, 2009      5 comments

Of course, I celebrate July 4th with its special meaning, but it is also symbolic for me. I started my lifestyle change on Oct. 13, '08 - Columbus Day, and viewed it as my voyage into a healthier lifestyle adventure. Now, this 4th of July is t... Read more
