    I posted a blog about a week ago stating my intention to practice maintenance through Christmas and how I felt that decision had taken some stress off of me. My goal was to maintain between 166-168. Today I did a weight check and I was at 166.7 (and that was after drinking coffee!) So it seems tha... Read more

  • Alcohol

    11/24/2015 12:07:49 PM, by LDFRANCO

    Today is the first day of no more alcohol. We have been drinking wine with every dinner most days and we just dumped the last 2 bottles down the sink.

    Frog wants to be anything but a slimy, wet frog. A cat, perhaps. Or a rabbit. An owl? But when a hungry wolf arrives—a wolf who HATES eating frogs—our hero decides that maybe "being himself isn’t so bad after all." A story of self acceptance. chris... Read more

  • Hiking Again!

    11/24/2015 5:39:14 AM, by JSTETSER

    Sunday was a great day for us! The weather was cold, raw and damp. People stayed away from Monadnock in droves. We had the Dublin Trail to ourselves. The peace and solitude was exactly what we needed. Many times in life, we do not know exactly what to do and which way to go. This was... Read more
