I weighed 171.8 this morning! That was a huge drop from last week (175.2). I didn't feel as if I'd done well enough on either food (a little too much) or exercise (not quite enough) to see a drop like that. So I'm sort of waiting to see what ... Read more

We succesfully got our son signed up for the soccer class we wanted. So that was successful. But it took a while (they passed out number in the order you arrived, and for some reason it was taking FOREVER to sign people up) so my husband staye... Read more

After a lousy couple weeks, and lousy last couple days, it was nice to see 175.2 on the scale. Pretty much right on plan, and a bit of a loss from last week. Today I'm going to take the kids to a community sports expo at 10am. We can pr... Read more

Hmmm... 3 days until I reach the 90 day point from when I started this renewed journey. Some of what I've done have become new habits. But other things have been struggles. Exercise is definitely my new very good habit. I've been very co... Read more

Tuesday, May 20, 2008      2 comments

First, thanks to everyone for your comments. I appreciate it. I'm still struggling right now. Falling off the wagon and saying "screw it" (as I did with the Enchiladas on Sunday night) is often the beginning of the end for me historically... Read more
