Weekly Weigh-Ins Instead of Daily

Sometimes I Just Want to Forget All This

I MUST BE NUTS!
Yesterday, I was walking through each store and restaurant in a nearby mall as part of membership development for the local Chamber of Commerce. I entered this bistro-like cafe with delish aromas everywhere, and a full view of their bakery item... Read more
Parts of My Body Returning! Hooray!

I've Been Debating

Yikes! Some Bizarre Behavior & A Slippery Slope
After six months of eating great and no sugar cravings (except for one day when I ate Cracker Jacks but didn't enjoy them), I've made non-conscious food decisions that just don't make sense. The other day, I brought home a bag of pizza rolls an... Read more

I'm surprised I Wasn't Twice As Big When I Started This Journey
Up until a few years ago, I was able to eat anything in any quantity and not gain weight. Then stress, hormones, and other challenges tidal waved me and the pounds came to visit. I never weighed myself, or paid attention to calories listed on ... Read more
