    I see this fairly often in "Dear Abby", usually around New Years.

    Good Morning; I woke up great. My DH was already up 4:30am. I knew something was up. He was leaving for the gym which we had said we were both going. He looked upset. He left and I began wondering what was going on. He came back and said nothing. Last night he got on this kick to retire again... Read more

  • Gluten Free: Day 24. Valentine's Day

    2/14/2017 9:10:04 AM, by DMARTIN302

    Valentine's Day. A day where one shares a meal and sweets with their loved ones. It's usually a special meal (translation: high calorie) with desserts and sweets (translation: even more calories). Share is a keyword. And sharing implies some sort of equality. It's not very fun when a Valentine gifts... Read more

  • Argument with my "Old-Self" at the Grocery Store

    2/13/2017 1:42:52 PM, by LOSEDAPOUNDS

    My daughter is better and now I'm sick and needing to catch up on work. When sick, I tend to lose perspective. This makes me vulnerable to old-self's powers of persuasion. I made it to the grocery store. (Let me interject here that I don't have a fever and am careful with coughing and snee... Read more

  • from Mark Hyman--about good fats

    2/12/2017 9:25:33 AM, by CTUPTON

    10. Your body gives you signs whether or not you are getting enough quality fat. The higher-quality the fat, the better your body will function. That’s because the body uses the fat you eat to build cell walls. You have more than 10 trillion cells in your body, and every single one of them needs hig... Read more

    2/11/2017 11:41:55 AM, by BERCRYS

    I'm not sure I'm going to have the emotional energy to continue dieting at the moment. I was thinking about giving up the calorie counting for now, while sticking with the walks, and stretches, and avoiding too much saturated fat. One day I'll have to do that anyway, when I'm comfortable with my w... Read more
