the saying is that it is all in the attitude. And I have decided that instead of dreading the next two weeks while Ian is not here, I will embrace the freedom of it. I do not have a great deal of freedom as I am so imbedded in my job. I have dai... Read more

Ian leaves today for China. He has been so supportive in my weight loss efforts. He does the cooking and makes sure it is my diet plan friendly. He will not be cooking for the next two weeks. It will be up to me to do the cooking - and I dread i... Read more

and then I let everything go (briefly) out of whack. I did something that I have not done since re-committing to losing weight - I went through a fast food place. I ate what I ordered. And realized it did not taste that good. It was expensive. A... Read more

It sounds funny, but Ian and I had decided to NOT grow a garden this year. Last year, we figured we spent over $400 for the bushels of tomatoes, 3 eggplants and one green pepper that we were able to harvest. It was a bad return on our investment... Read more
