Those who know I am losing weight, ask me in person a lot how much I have lost. They usually don't ask what my GOAL is. I have had pounds lost as my focus for a while now. I keep saying "I lost 77 so far, and I want to lose 1 more pound by the e... Read more

I make turkey chili last night - yum yum! I used diced tomatoes with no salt added instead of tomato sauce. I added a hot pepper and carrots which I normally don't do. It was really great! My Mom & I took the dogs for a mile walk last night. It ... Read more

Yoga on Monday was much harder than the first time I tried it. There was different instructor this time. She was great. It was an hour and 20 minutes also instead of the hour class I tried the first time. We did a lot more salutations and did t... Read more
