Still fighting when my body fights back. It can be a battle. Today is one of THOSE days, when my body is fighting me, and I sigh and say "aww, come on! Enough already." Body parts hurt. That's all. I don't really want to get into it. Back... Read more

This week I got through all the appointments. No weight loss, but my blood pressure has dropped back down (even lower at my primary care physician), so my eating and walking are having some payoff. I know I need to step up my activity, but the l... Read more
