3. Every Saturday I will weigh myself and report my weight. Even if I don't like it.
4. I will start weighing and measuring my food again. I have gotten away from that.

Reasons I want to lose weight:
1. I believe it will reduce my pain
2. I will be more fit, more comfortable, more energetic.
3. I have more energy.
4. I will fell better, sleep better, move better
5. My health will improve

February is another one of those months when stores create magical candy-filled displays. Inside those foil-covered heart-shaped boxes festooned with lace, ribbons and fake flowers are chocolates that have been rattling around in their cardboard container since October--and they taste like it.

Treat yourself to something sweet and delicious that tastes like real food--crisp apples, juicy grapes, fresh pineapple, or a perfectly ripened pear. Just say no to cardboard.

On the radio this morning I heard about the woman swimming across from Cuba to Florida. It made me think of you! Have a great week.
