I treated Mom to Bonefish Grill's prix fixe menu the other night and we ended up carrying home 3 (!) containers of leftovers. Portion control IS possible when eating out! I had the salmon (although I only tasted it, the salad was so filling... Read more

Think I'll inquire at the gym about getting paired up with another member for the month of September and see if I can be more consistent in my exercise. If that's not possible, I'll plan to go to daily classes at least 3 times a week. What I r... Read more

Which was it Alice had to choose to be smaller instead of bigger - the "Drink me" or the "eat me" selection? If only it were that simple to get the scale to cooperate. Instead, it's one day at a time, one good decision at a time. I hadn't... Read more

for those who have read the books and followed the films, it's sort of sad to see this day come, the "end" of an era. I went to the movie today, and 2D or 3D, it is a spectacle. The adaptive changes didn't take away from the story line, and... Read more
