I knew I had gained weight but have been avoiding the scale. This morning, I weighed in and what I knew instinctively was confirmed. It isn't a surprise. I know what to do, and haven't been doing it consistently. I have had to make adjustm... Read more

This week has left me a bit disheartened and spent. A bunch of little things can add up and take you down. It started with dealing with an expense for my Mom, who lives out of state in nursing care. I wrote about it a bit on Wednesday, and... Read more
