Is 2018 going to be any different?
Every few years, I get tired of being my “fat” self and work on being my “thin” self. I do really great, lose a lot of weight for a very short time and then gain it back a year or so later. I keep coming back, but I wish I didn’t have to. Anyway... Read more
Time to get going.

I have decided that in order to prevent myself from snacking too much after the kids go to bed, I am going to update my blog daily. I usually just watch TV and eat and eat. Now I am watching TV and Pittsburgh just fumbled the ball and Denver r... Read more
