So, I made it one more day! I met most of my goals yesterday, with the exception of water. I didn't quite get enough. But I did track, resist junk, and exercise, so that is definitely progress. It feels so good to be doing something again. ... Read more

I have pretty much been stuck for the past 6 months! Not stuck in the sense of a plateau, but stuck because I just can't seem to stick to my healthy eating! I've become rebellious. I don't WANT to eat healthy. It's not fair. Why do I have t... Read more

Dear friends, I am so sorry that I have not been there for you the past couple of weeks. I have had a little setback. You see, after several months (possibly years) of being free of it, depression has once again reared its ugly head. I h... Read more
