"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.
I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nute... Read more
Enjoying the New Fitbit
Lest I mislead you with my last blog about being confused about my first day of Fitbit, let me clarify. As a non-tech person, it is VERY easy to set up. However, I just had a couple more "steps" to do in the set-up phase that I had missed. No... Read more
Confused after 1st Fitbit Day
What was disappointing was that, upon checking the Fitbit site and having used the dongle, only calories showed up. Not number of steps or miles. Why? I don't know. I was looking forward to a grand total.
It has already reset, so I can'... Read more
INITIAL FITBIT IMPRESSIONS
I received my new pink Fitbit Zip late yesterday afternoon. Easy to set up, I was surprised at how small it is, yet how much it can calculate! Even with the few hours I had it on in the house, it was amazing how many steps I took! Too bad it ... Read more

Why I Caved & Ordered Fitbit
I don't jump on bandwagons, so I took my time and heavily weighed whether I'd really use the hefty-priced Fitbit. Honestly, I walk a lot. And I've always wondered what it translates to in miles and calories burned. I want to "step" it up, so ... Read more
DAILY WEIGHING-ANOTHER OPINION
I walked into the room during the very last few sentences of a radio interview with an author who just wrote a weight loss book. He said that he'd heard many warnings not to weigh daily as it is too frustrating. But he felt the opposite to be ... Read more

Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide Curiosity
I've read about this for years and wonder if anyone else has, or even tried it. There are supposedly some health benefits to using a few drops in water daily.
Still considering getting a Fitbit, but not really sure I'd use it and really ... Read more
3 LBS TO GO UNTIL GOAL!!!!!
Four years ago, when I set out on this adventure and set this goal, it seemed like the impossible dream. It was the first time in my life that I had to deal with weight and I stayed at a plateau for the first three years after losing 34 lbs. T... Read more
