True, it was only through the use of both estrogen and progesterone, but still - I got my first period in 11 months!!!!!!!!! After losing it for so long due to the weight loss process - not eating enough, over-exercising, losing way too muc... Read more

I finally got a food scale! Santa (Mom) got it for me. :) And now I can accurately track my food without spending so much time stressing over estimating it! I'm telling you, I used to get packs of chicken breast, and try to figure out how m... Read more

I spent it, as always, with my extended family. We had a great time! Played some games, ate a CRAPTON of good food. Here's what I'm proud of: ~ I didn't have any of the pizza that was ordered, except for a couple bites of my husband's.... Read more

I don't think so. But that's what the scale says - I must have eaten some seriously high-sodium stuff, I guess. I actually did very well with eating away from home at and at a couple parties for several days...but starting on Christmas Day... Read more

I swear, I sometimes forget how good fruit can be for dessert. I had about 3/4 cup of a cream soup today while I was out and about. It came from one of my favorite local places to eat, and I've never tried their soups before and this one so... Read more

Well I still don't like running without music, but I found a silver lining the last two times I went running, when I was forced to do without my iPod. (Someone suggested using Pandora on a smartphone; my husband is the only one of us with a smar... Read more
