Nothing can be accomplished if we give up, so today's a new day, and I'm not giving up. I also know it's easier, and more fun, to have a partner through life's stages, so I've gotten me a weight loss partner, actually 4 of them. We've star... Read more

I have been depressed for so long, but I think I've come out of it. It was my back that did me in. One day I was walking down the hall, and the next step, I couldn't move. I'd done nothing; no twisting, turning, lifting, stumbling, or falling... Read more

What's the matter with me? I keep feeling sorry for myself, acting like my weight and my tiredness, boredom, depression, what have you, is everyone else's fault. The fact is, I haven't taken responsibility for myself, and I don't want to. I don'... Read more

Nothing feels as good as . . . wow! One could poll a million different people and get a million different answers. I say nothing feels as good as moderation. I have battled obesity all of my almost 54 years; and let's face it, while I c... Read more
