Ah, the success I yearned for has passed through my fingers. It is, of course, my own doing. Or is it undoing? The stresses of the world overcome me -- and I take my solace in comfort food. Old habits are even harder to break the older you g... Read more

Eighty plus days in to this journey. It is not going as well as I would like. Some of the stress of life has been almost overwhelming. Yes, I have learned about myself during this. I guess gaining insight is better than gaining weight. But,... Read more
