No, this is not a commercial for drinking more milk, lol. This is my lovely auburn-haired mother. Look at that waist. I have been trying to visualize what I might look like at a healthy weight. Who better to choose than someone who share... Read more

The tin-man season has started. Pain is like dripping water on rock, unsettling the best of plans. I am no stranger to pain. Accept new phases and move on. So if you see the tin man around town doing the Tim Conway old-man shuffle, wave as you j... Read more

Woohoo, I did it! Down exactly 30 pounds this morning. It won't be official on my ticker until Monday's weigh-in. Last night and today have been horrible for wanting to graze. Can't my mind get with the program and celebrate a little success?... Read more

My friend, BITTYGIRL51, posted that "90% of the battle is just keeping our head in the game..." That's good to remember. When we go off plan, we make the decision to do it. The behavior may follow so closely on the thought that we don't want to... Read more

Do you remember all the things you wanted to be when you grew up? Recently our local paper had a picture of a 4 year old who wants to pursue about 10 occupations. We smile. When I grow up I want to specialize in reclaiming old houses. In ... Read more
