    I have to say that I am pretty proud of myself this past 7-8 days. Each day I worked hard to get this done. I started at 327 on Memorial Day and I am down to 315. My attitude's been upbeat about this. I can do this! I have done it. I just have to work for it. Number crunching wont get m... Read more

  • Dear Loving Husband...

    5/28/2015 7:38:09 AM, by SANDY1969

    Could you please hide the potato chips before I get home tonight? From your Loving Wife. That's the note I left him yesterday on the counter. He hid them. Right now I'd love to have them. Right now though I am drinking my water. Although it is my day off I was up at 5:30AM this morning. I ha... Read more

I let him cook me 1...told him no bun and no cheese. MAJOR accom... Read more

  • Do'in.

    5/25/2015 8:09:32 AM, by SANDY1969

    Just cheating myself here. I realize that now. Ive been concentrating on what SHOULD work and not putting IN the work. That probably doesnt make sense to anyone else. I have been at this since 2010 and Ive had a little success but I have only come about half way to what I consider a goal. ... Read more

    Wow so here we are. Almost a month since my last blog. I have to say that lately I just don't have what it takes. I feel like such a fraud. I have been desperately trying to find that certain something that's going to send me over the edge or back on track. Nothing, and I repeat nothing can... Read more

  • What a week -

    5/9/2015 5:21:23 PM, by NEELIXNKES

    It wasn't a bad week in terms of family issues or work issues (though there were some) but dang it was a hard week food craving wise. I have spent most of everyday this week fighting off onion ring and pizza cravings. I haven't wanted bread more in this gluten free journey than this week. Everythi... Read more
