Changing things up

Well, we are changing things up a bit. I changed some of my goals last week and my calorie range was lowered and some of my other numbers. I have been surprised at how easy it is to feel full and satisfied even when eating 300 calories less a da... Read more

Still the same

I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks, but nothing much has changed. I am still trading off the same two pounds. I am not able to work out as often as I would like and I think that that is part of it. I am enjoying getting to eat more fresh fr... Read more
