Well things have not gotten any better with the car. The place we got the car from is saying we owe almost as much as the car cost when we bought it 2 years ago, and we have been making payments. At this point it is probably not worth getting ... Read more

I am excited because I can tighten my watch by another whole. Watches have always caused me trouble because on top of being over-weight I do have big bones so I can't just go to the store and buy any cute watch and I won't wear a men's watch. ... Read more

The last entry I made was that I lost 30 pounds overnight. I hope no one believed that. I just needed new batteries in my scale. I am still making progress, but not quite that drastic. My kids left today to go on a cruise with their dad.... Read more
