  • Day 62. Month 2 is over, month 3 begins and I am disappointed in myself.

    1/16/2017 8:21:00 PM, by NEW_ME_IN_2017

    I will admit to you and to myself that month 2 did NOT go as I had planned. I had committed to working out more. However, that wasn't the case and in fact, I worked out less. Maybe it was the holidays, maybe not. Either way, I am disappointed. Now, I could always sit here and type about I am going t... Read more

  • Lost a pound.

    12/20/2016 3:53:09 PM, by POEDAUGHTER7

    I lost another pound this week! I am glad to get a better arm and leg ratio. However, I do NOT want to drop too many sizes around my bra area. A natural double D sized bra area has to take up some size, and space somewhere. Now I am off to hear music in another town. Gotta drive to have s... Read more
