I keep a "dashboard" of indicators to monitor my health now. How do I FEEl? What are my measurements? What are some small ways I can improve each month? I still have some weight to lose, but now I'm training for the long haul. I'm learning how to make this weight loss stick!

THanks for the blog comment! Shaun T is great (and maybe a little crazy), but it is really working too!
