    I've just read an article about how blogging can help you lose weight.

    Crazy long day. It all started with a water main break leaving me with no water in my apartment and no shower etc. Then between that and the snow it turned into an hour long commute to work which usually only takes me 20 mins. So I ended up late for work. Had a complicated patient load at work an... Read more

    1/26/2015 8:27:07 PM, by KRISTA987

    Happy Monday! I meant to blog more on the weekend, but just got too caught up with life. Got news that a close family friend has stage 4 cancer. Don't know too much, but they rushed her right into treatment. They still have to do more testing to figure out exactly how bad it is. The whole... Read more

  • Looking for an accountability friend(s)

    1/26/2015 5:16:03 PM, by DAWN220

    I have been reading a book called "The Girl Friend Diet" (?). This may be off a little. Anyway it talks about having someone to be accountable to. I cannot be accountable to anyone in my family because they do not understand and would not know how to talk without making me feel bad. I have asked... Read more

    1/26/2015 1:35:44 PM, by CASTERINASPELL

    I used to always think I needed to eat breakfast every day, but here I am sailing through until noon before eating anything. Granted, I was ravenous while making my red chard steamed mélange (kind of a warm salad) and I certainly overdid it - i.e. used up my days' calories in one meal - by having a... Read more

    1/26/2015 12:27:40 PM, by EDEL262

    I'm back! It is so hard to get started. Why is it most workouts don't take in to account that I am old and fat and try to overwhelm me? There is so little time for exercise in my schedule but I will try to make it work. I have bought a bodygym hoping I can incorporate some time for it while sittin... Read more

    1/26/2015 11:58:01 AM, by RUNAMOKQT

    Well I finally conquered my final 3 obstacles, being frustrated at myself for not being more consistent, accepting how little I can do right now, accepting that for right now I can only concentrate on one thing at a time. Now that I've excepted it believe it or not, I'm much more consistent, I'm doi... Read more

    I was never so conscious of the weather until I started running. Now I'm constantly watching the weather reports, hoping for a warm enough overnight temperature (I run at 5:30am, so it might as well be night!) to run outdoors. Of course, this winter we're experiencing lower than average temperatur... Read more
