  • New Clothes?

    10/24/2014 11:35:42 AM, by LMILTON67

    So, I've lost enough weight that many of my pants are now too big and start falling off my tuckus. I'd really love to buy new pants, but financially not possible right now. But I don't like the way my pants gather up if I put a belt on, not to mention many of my work pants don't have ... Read more

    The office is on the 31st floor on LaSalle Street in Chicago, and we face east. If I look closely, there's a space between a couple of buildings, and I can see a sliver of the lake. I used to have a better "view", but there's been a fair amount of construction in the downtown area. Since I have a... Read more

    It may be my imagination, but I feel like I can fit into desks and restaurant tables easier. It could be just water weight, and goodness knows I don't have a scale to weigh myself, but I do feel like I've lost a bit around my waist. Today I went to Subway with my husband---we have a habit of e... Read more

I wonder why it always takes something physically or emotionally hurtful to motivate me to take care of myself. I always seem to be gazing the things I have yet to a... Read more

    10/22/2014 10:12:27 PM, by IMSTILLYOUNG!

    I have a bit of a sore throat. Probably the start of a cold, though maybe it's diet related. I don't know. Today, I mostly felt elated by the way I was eating. Boring to eat the same meal 6 times in a row, but I liked the clarity of knowing what I'd eat and when. I've kept to the 3 meals ... Read more
