Hanging On - Some Days Are Easier Than Others

Tomorrow - Weigh in for Week 3
Well, tomorow is my end of week 3 weigh-in. I have my doubts. The first two weeks were good, lost a lot of fluid and I suppose a bit of weight for an 11.8 pound loss. This week has felt different and I can't explain it. I have been on my plan e... Read more

Here is a wake up call for those of you with 50 pounds or more to lose. Don't give up. I gave up, gave in, fell off...whatever the terminology--then I wallowed in it for 6 years....SIX YEARS!!!
In 2007 I lost 60 pounds and my entire life ch... Read more

Did you know that if you eat 500 calories of cake and 500 calories of green beans, your body says, "hey there's enou... Read more

Isn't This A Nasty Battle
The battle goes on. Some good days, followed by a host of bad ones that manage to undo the good ones.
My biggest concern and primary focus needs to be my legs. Walking is increasingly difficult and I cannot stand longer than 5 or 10 minut... Read more
