  • Go-go-go!

    7/31/2014 12:55:10 AM, by DTERESA

    I want to take the time to recognize non-scale victories. I've noticed such a big shift in my outlook! I find myself choosing smaller bowls/plates to serve myself in.

    7/30/2014 9:46:36 PM, by NIKKIONTHERUN

    I heard this while watching Extreme Weight Loss. Now I know there are issues with every weight loss show, but I feel like EWL tried to do it the best and safest they can while still being a TV show, made for entertainment. Besides anyone's opinions on these shows, I have to admit, when I heard Cassi... Read more

    Yeah I know that I shouldn't feel lonely but I do. Its been that way since my mom passed away in 2006. Seeing my brothers, sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews, and grandniece with their moms, makes me feel even more alone and no longer part of the family. No one knows this. I just don't want anyone sayi... Read more

At 68 years old, I have seen enough people suffer, to understand why some day this might ring true even for me. However, the chance of it com... Read more
