Today has not been a great day. Scale was up 1.2lbs, but that's likely all water weight. I did a good workout on the treadmill, so I WAS feeling pretty good until I went out to my car. There's a sweet little stray dog hanging around the hou... Read more

This was the first morning that I actually dreaded my workout. I dragged myself out of bed & felt achy and stiff. I pushed & got my workout done...45 minutes on the treadmill at a 6 incline, bouncing between 2 & 2.5mph (a fast walk). I was drenc... Read more

I've been riding this train for 6 weeks now. I'm a queen procrastinator & known for my ability to not stick with anything longer than two weeks. New hobbies, interests, and food/exercise changes are the worst offenders. Since college,... Read more

So the other reason I'm doing this weight-loss thing has to do with finally being mentally prepared enough to tackle this issue. After one unsuccessful marriage & the 2nd one quickly going down the tubes, I knew I had to do something. I've ... Read more

So why am I doing this losing weight thing? My declining health has scared me straight. A little history here (apologize if this is TMI for some of my male vistors). When I was in high school, I dropped to my lowest weight ever, 135lbs... Read more
