Monday, October 13, 2014      19 comments

Very unusually for me, I did not track my food yesterday. I ate moderately (for Thanksgiving Dinner, that is) but I did have a portion of pretty much everything I had "assembled". Garden cocktail; prestuffed turkey (and its stuffing); grav... Read more
Shoulder Surgery
Sunday, October 12, 2014      27 comments

Friday, October 03, 2014      25 comments

I love clothes. Clothes help motivate me to maintain weight loss. During the weight loss phase, when I went from size 18-20 down to an 8 (sometimes a 6, sometimes a 10) I went through a lot of clothes. It was key to move out clothes t... Read more
