First thing, get out of these pajamas into my swimsuit and off to the therapy pool with 92-degree water. Can hardly wait. It is the best exercise I can get. The weather is warming up but that also means the humidity is going up due to melting... Read more

I need to weigh myself every day to be sure I am not getting retention from too much sodium. (Watching sodium is rather tedious but thanks to SparkPeople if I track my food it is listed in my detailed accounting....Even though it was a bit high... Read more
It has to be water weight. I dare not weigh myself after I hydrate today. Must weigh naked and thirsty.
Two days ago I blogged about forgetting to track close to 2000 calories...
Today I am going to try to hold onto that weight los... Read more
Would it be cool (or not) if we had a computer that automatically counted all the food we "forgot" to track? Yesterday is a case in point. I finished off the bag of Lindor truffles I bought "to bring to work" (120 calories X 6 = 720), a "handful... Read more
