I have fallen off the wagon a couple of times! It's usually when I travel, which I need to do for my work. When I'm on the road, it's harder to track all the food I end up eating. But I have changed my attitude about it. Even if I can't t... Read more

I am more dedicated than ever... I ordered a food scale & portion control bowls online. They just came in today. Already it's helping! I have never gone this far to track my calories & portions. I have a feeling that this time I will be suc... Read more

Strange to be home for Christmas as I'm usually on the road at this time of the year. But so glad to be home for the holidays with my husband. Doing normal things like Christmas shopping & decorating. It's amazing what we take for granted. My fr... Read more

I had an 8 month contract on a cruise ship. Believe it or not, the food was not the highest quality. The company had been cutting back. They put sauce on everything. The fruit was not fresh... But I'm finally home. I can cook for myself. I'm t... Read more
