1. Doing vs Tracking I think I've had a revelation of sorts the past few days. It's better to "do" than to "track". Yes, I do want to track what I do. But as things get busy at this time of year, it's definitely better to take time to do s... Read more
Working Thru the Baggage

May has been a difficult month for me on this journey toward a smaller and healthier me. I'll probably only lose a pound or two, when all is said and done. I haven't done what I set out to do. I'm disappointed in myself. I've learned a few t... Read more

Last week, Bruce with SP wrote a blog about the slowest loser. He plans to lose 35 pounds over the next 70 weeks. He's an excellent writer - very motivational! - so if you haven't read it, you really should:-) It's one of the blogs we get 3 s... Read more

I've always been an all-or-nothing kind of person. So, I've either been doing everything I can to be healthy, or nothing I can to be healthy. On or off. Which makes getting back "on" very difficult. Most of my battle is in my mind. Is i... Read more
