I have a job that can be very sedentary. I work at home, that's the good thing. Some weeks I can be totally swamped with work to the point I barely leave the couch (where my work station is). That's the bad thing. This week, I'm swamped with wor... Read more

The title to this may be a little misleading in some ways, but it's important to me. This may also seem like a strange post to be making on such a joyous day as Christmas, but for me, it's fitting to take stock and reflect on this day, something... Read more
My Seatbelt FITS
Friday, December 23, 2011      10 comments

Today is the first time in over a year that I've been able to buckle my seatbelt. I know it's against the law to drive without a seatbelt, but what can you do when it doesn't fit? I've been wrapping it as far as I can around me and holding it wi... Read more

I'm feeling GREAT TODAY. It's not hard to feel great when the scale agrees with what you are doing. Today I'm celebrating because I lost over 3 pounds this week. However, I have a problem keeping my attitude in high gear when the scale doe... Read more
Lettuce Entertain You

Well, the scale is still moving, but it's taking it's sweet time doing it. LOL My official weigh in for the week is a 1.6 pound loss. The reason that's "funny" is that I was losing more before I started exercising seriously. I added literally th... Read more
