Today you would have been 79. There are so many things I can thank you for. First of all - being born! You were just what I needed in a mama. You were so pretty, and smart. I wondered if I would EVER be able to type as fast as you.......you... Read more

Well, I knew that 6th pound would be a bear, but it's gone too so I changed my tracker. It's been slower progress this week, but I also feel a zillion times better than the last week - that was TOUGH!. Meanwhile, DH has fallen way way off the ... Read more

Well, if we could always lose a pound a day that would be cool. I've lost 6 pounds but only posted 5 because of the idea in the back of my head that this will stop at any moment, I always know inside the first 5 are the easiest to lose. I am g... Read more

I didn't expect my body to react so strongly to this phase. I guess it thinks it cannot function without sugar. Poor Bob is even worse. He has stomach cramps and the trips to the toidy that go along with that. Neither of us want to eat at t... Read more

So far, so good! We had a great bike ride; picked up some amazing deals and are doing the food thing right so far. I didn't realize that EVERYTHING has sugar in it. No wonder I'm addicted :) I bought canned kidney beans to make chili and it'... Read more

Today is Luke's 28th birthday. I love this picture it's from Valentine's Day - he is SUCH a sugar fiend like his mama. I hope he gets something in the mail from me today. I've been sending him packages and cards but you never know when the st... Read more

Ok, so I am really really happy to be able to say this. BUT, I have this nagging fear inside of me; I mean I wasn't losing ANY weight for months before my surgery and now I've lost several pounds since I've been immobile - so of course the devi... Read more

23 years ago today; out came Jonny! I had a dream about him last night that he came into the room and was only about 4 years old. When I asked him why he was there he said "it's my birthday". I told him he was older than that; and he just gav... Read more
