I'm looking at 133 on the scale, no matter how many times I step off and step on. There's satisfaction in attaining my goal. But now I'm starting to worry. Next week is Thanksgiving, and nothing I'll be eating is low-cal except the gree... Read more

This is the last week of our Fall 5% Challenge. Yesterday I weighed in at 134.4 and today at 134 (just checking to be sure that it wasn't going to be one of those "down one day and up the next" deals). My goal, not just for the challenge, but... Read more

Even though I won't be "officially" retired until December 31, my semester will be done December 16, so I have only 6 more days--less than a week, after 47 1/2 years of college teaching. Last Friday evening, our president gave me a retirement d... Read more
