While most people may freak out if they saw 249 on the scale, for me it is time for a major celebration! When I hit 315 pounds I thought my life was pretty much over. I never thought it possible to be under 250 pounds again. My body was just ... Read more

I watched The Biggest Loser this week and I could sure relate to their frustration. It also put my own situation into a little better perspective. So often the contestants pull ridiculous weight loss numbers...and other weeks are like this one... Read more

Sun...for the first time in weeks. Being subject to pretty severe seasonal depression seeing the sun today was so refreshing. I met one of my sons at the gym and it was fantastic. I must be solar powered! Winter is my worst time of year ... Read more

Am finally losing again! I work a week on/week off schedule of 12 hour shifts. It was so frustrating losing weight on my off week only to gain it back on my work week. Same pounds over and over again. So the new strategy worked...making sure... Read more

So I've been about the same weight for the last 2 months. Very frustrating! I have a new scale that measures BMI and lean muscle mass. The water measurement is pretty useless since it's says I'm 20% water whether I'm dehydrated or swollen up ... Read more
