It's been 2 months since I've blogged but I'm still around. I'm down 15 lbs and still slowly going at it. My husband is officially confined to a wheelchair due to the numbness, weakness, and pain in his back and legs. His Dr's are tryin... Read more

I can't believe it's already the 13th day of 2016...So far these last two weeks have not been the healthiest but have not been the worst. The worst part right now is we are broke and have no veggies or fruits in the house. Read more
