No...I'm not talking about quitting SP. I'm talking about the email that arrived today that was entitled "Congratulations on completing stage 2." I do not feel I've mastered the things that were part of stage 2 so do I go ahead and click that ... Read more

Thursday, April 17, 2008      2 comments

I am still at zero for the numbers gain, but that is okay. I think I would have shown a loss had it not been "that time" and I typically see a 2 lb. gain. However, I have not given it enough so I don't deserve to see anything but that zero. ... Read more

Thursday, April 10, 2008      2 comments

Although I did see a 3 lb. loss when I weighed in a the end of week 2, I must admit that today I did not budge from that number. That's okay though. Anywhere but up is a good thing. I also have to admit that I did not do well weighing out... Read more
