Chapter 26, Day 59
Time to rally. Yesterday's food choices were both good and bad. It was a hungry day and without explanation. I think it may have something to do with this cold because it's compromised my taste buds and after several days of that, I tend to g... Read more

Chapter 27, Day 49
It is a first for me, my losing weight over the Thanksgiving holiday. My food sacrifices on that day paid off, and I'm alive and well to tell the story, lol. And what a wonderful Thanksgiving Day it was at DS2s. My son and DIL, had a large cro... Read more
Chapter 27, Day 42

"keep on, keepin' on"
That's what sparkers like to say. It's profound.
This dang ole scale is stuck. It's been stuck ever since my weigh in on Day 14. It is easy to get discouraged, and I did, and then I had some less than good, but... Read more
Chapter 27, Day 32. Rally is on
Ever since a poor weigh in that I did not deserve, I have let discouragement in, and my resolve has been weak. I am making my job of losing weight all the harder and that is just plain dumb behavior.
