My weigh in was ok. I stayed the same as last week. I did not gain so that is AWESOME. I didn't lose but I didn't think I would. I have not been on track with eating or exercise. Life is pretty hectic right now. I hope to get back on track in th... Read more

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I LOVE Fall! We had the best time this weekend. We went on a hayride, walked through a corn maze and picked pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. The weather was sunny but brisk, definitely hoodie/sweater... Read more

Have any of you tried a Bodybug or fitbit? What do you like about the one you have used? What have you disliked? I am looking into getting one of these. I wish there was a way to try it before you buy it as these are expensive and I'm not sure w... Read more

Our Medical Insurance is only networked in 5 states, we are currently in one state that isn't networked (my husbands works all over the US - we travel a lot). Since I am unable to be seen by an In Network doctor I have to prepay and then submit ... Read more

So yesterday was pretty hard for me. I went through a wave of feelings. Sadness, anger, feel like quitting, negative self talk and emptiness. Pretty exhausting. Today is a new start ... Read more

My kids had the day off and had some friends over. We went to the store to get some snacks for the day. The kids picked out the usual fruit, chips, soda and this HUGE container of cookies. I was hesitant to get the cookies because I LOVE them bu... Read more

I bought a new fancy scale that measures body fat, weight, percentage of water and what my daily calories should be. What a disappointment. The new scale shows 5.6 pounds MORE than the old scale. *Sigh* This is so frustrating. The scale shows my... Read more
