Well my size 7's are getting loose and soon I will be down to a smaller size. It feels great when your clothes get too big and you can move down in size. It reassures you that you are doing all of this for a reason and the reason is showing. ... Read more

Yesterday I blogged that I was stuck on a plateau but today my scale was gracious to me. The water weight and plateau have taken leave and the scale was down. I actually did a little dance right there on the scale. Once again I am revived and... Read more

Today I slept in and was lazy to some degree. I did get my workout in and I am having to push myself to eat. I guess that's not a bad thing! I know it's not good to consume less than 1200 calories a day but I just don't feel like eating.... Read more
