The holidays were not my greatest moment. I ate too much, exercised too little and the scales showed the result. But I am not starting over. The holidays were the exception, a healthy lifestyle is the rule. Thus I'm not starting over I'm ca... Read more

For many years I had completely given up on this place and myself. I was always either in the schoolroom, driving kids, or sitting on my butt in front of the computer too depressed to move. That seems to have all changed and I'm back to being... Read more
