Okay, I did overdo it over the holidays. In some ways I am surprised the total gain isn't worse. I guess I have learned some good habits. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's, I have gained 7 lbs. My goal is to have it gone by Valentine's Day... Read more

When my dear SIL said our time at the resort in the Ozarks was going to be sleeping, eating and reading, she wasn't kidding. I must admit, I posted some of what I ate, just to see how bad it was, but I didn't post everything for three whole day... Read more
