I like how adding tasteless collagen to my herbal tea really boosts my protein, and not fat. Been using it for months, but am on the fence about the actual... Read more

    from an SP article: 198 Just drinking a glass of water along with the meal does not provide the same degree of satiety. Research has shown that to reduce hunger and boost fullness, the water has to be in the food. Why? Because there are separate mechanisms in the brain to con... Read more

  • A question....

    1/3/2018 1:11:51 PM, by GINNYREE

    Be honest. Is there a way to ask people in my life (current and past) WHY they don't/didn't like me without it sounding like one of those whining attention-seeking kids on all the social media outlets?? I used to think I was being paranoid, but its been confirmed in many facets of my life m... Read more

I have 3 challenges beginning this week and perhaps it is too much going on in my brain for the planning. But, that should not be the case, because all of the challenges are in... Read more

    The previous blog entry was written on the evening of October 2, 2017. I was feeling optimistic and when I woke up early in the morning (just a few hours after writing the blog entry) and was having trouble getting back to sleep, I decided to embark on my first day of the exercise challenge. I set o... Read more

  • VENTING

    1/1/2018 5:46:09 PM, by SMIDGON

    I hope you will bear with me. This is not a venting blog, or, is it? I like to think of it as a observation. You know, as a young person, I wondered if a lot of this was imagination on the part of the observer. But, I think not! I am in my late 70s. My hubby is 81yrs, a hea... Read more

    Yes it is a wide open topic on purpose. Write about 300 words-or less. No other ideas than that. Maybe our group should have brain stormed awhile first! I suppose I could put boundaries up myself. Oh, I know, I do that by brainstorming on paper. "dreams" goes in the middle ... Read more
