Re-booting my efforts after a long back slide. Life and routine get in the way sometimes, and I let it get the better of me. My last long stretch here, I lost over 100 pounds....so I know I can do it! Last October I fractured the humerus ... Read more
Boring Blog
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      1 comments

Weight loss has been sluggish...so, have been keeping away from the scale a little lately. I feel good and my clothes fit (which is a red flag warning). Still logging, except for slacking off a bit on the weekends. Watching portions and t... Read more
