I got up today and discovered that my pedometer battery was dead and that I didn't have another one so no step counting today. I still followed my general walking plan so I should be okay anyway. I ate at the maximum of my calories and carbs. Di... Read more

Sorry about the disgusting joke. I couldn't resist. I was desperate - was getting close to being out of calories shortly after supper and didn't want to go over so I wanted to forgo my evening snacking. I told my son I needed some kind of a eati... Read more

It was a nicer day today but it rained several times. I'm kind of worried about my dad. Lately we have been getting these calls where the phone rings and it hangs up before a full ring and the caller doesn't register on caller ID. I thought... Read more

I ran into a friend yesterday who was amazed at how much weight I have lost. I usually don't notice it so I was surprised that she did since I still wear baggy clothes most of the time. She is a weight conscious person so maybe that makes her mo... Read more
