There's something really cool about a new week. It's a fresh start, a chance to make even more good choices. I've now made very healthy choices for the past 4 days, but it's over now. Today is a whole new week. This week I will stay within... Read more

A Letter to Myself

Tuesday, January 01, 2008      4 comments

Dear Emily, What you have been doing is not working for you. You keep trying to do the same things over and over and hope that you will see a loss at the scale or looser clothes. That's not going to happen. You need to do something DIFFE... Read more
