New Year, New Plans

I was reading blogs this morning (NOTABOUTHEFACE: yours was my favorite!) thinking about goals and resolutions. And it came to me: rather than sitting in front of the computer to think about goals and resolutions, why don't you think about go... Read more

I've written of the importance of taking many, many photos along the journey. I've also written of my frustration at not losing weight (and 10 pound gain.) I'm still not losing but I've been working with a personal trainer and once again, some... Read more
