I watched the new Biggest Loser show last night on television. I know some people don't like that show, but despite the unrealistically fast weight loss, I love it. I felt inspired listening to the contestants and watching them work so hard.... Read more

I am sitting here waiting for my smoking hot oatmeal to cool down enough to eat it and thinking that when I get under 200 pounds, I am going to reward myself with a special reward treat. I am not sure what that will be yet, I may go and spend... Read more
