On Saturday we went to El Colorado with the kayak group. DH didn't go kayaking, so I kept him company on the the beach. It was a gorgeous day and I got a little color on my legs - slowly but surely my casper look is vanishing... We had a lovely ... Read more

This morning I weighed 146.5, that's up from yesterday and it makes sense considering I had a muffin at book club and not as much water as previous days. Also I think my body has lost the travel bloat and is stabilizing again... Now the hard wor... Read more
