Wednesday, January 14, 2015      5 comments

I think I should blame someone, right? That is how things work. I need to blame someone for me not being able to lose weight. Maybe I can blame my parents. That makes sense. They are the ones that put me on this path. Oh, but wait. I ... Read more

I love the new SP app and layout. I was on this site a long time ago and now it makes it so much easier to watch my numbers. Of course it's really only one number - 3500. The magic number that can add or take away poundage from my body. ... Read more

Yesterday I was at work and in the morning about an hour after I got there I thought I was hungry. It was false. I don't know when my body started doing this, but I "thought" I was hungry an hour after I had already eaten. How silly is th... Read more

I'm chagrined to admit that my weight has gone back up. Not to the original level mind you, but I've gained back half of what I had lost. I KNOW that a healthy lifestyle isn't like going on a diet. There is no end to it. I also know that... Read more
