Anybody out there try Ideal Protein
Over the past year I've watch a co-worker lose an amazing amount of weight with Ideal Protein (IP) so I'd be lying if I said joining hasn't crossed my mind. Really, if we are honest with ourselves, don't we all crave weight loss that is... Read more

What I learned from watching Miss America and my wee little geranium plant
Yes, I hit bottom (again) but there it is and I'm crawling back up. I'm very thankful for my humour, my medications, my dogs, and family/friends who help carry me through these times of despair. Another day punched is another day I'm fi... Read more

I am (_____) enough. P.S. So are YOU!
After years of thinking I was never ________enough, I'm realizing it's time to STOP! For me, that blank could be filled in with such words as "smart", "kind", "thin", "pretty", etc. Actually I can easily think up at least 20 more words ... Read more

You can't compete with the foods you eat.
I've been reading "The Diet Fix" by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff (which I highly recommend) and I'm thoroughly hooked. In fact it's the first "diet" book I've ever read that makes sense. Not to steal his thunder but he believes we each have a bes... Read more
