I don't know about anyone else, but summers are always the time I fall off the wagon. It seems like Memorial Day hits and the celebration begins. I start off with good intentions....splurging here....tightening the belt there....splurging some... Read more
One pound...

One pound....doesn't sound like much, does it? But ask the mother of a new born preemie. Ask the professional wrestler trying to make the lightweight category. Or think of the pound of pressure in the tire of your car which may keep it from g... Read more

So I jumped on the scale today, hoping that my weekly weigh in would be as good as my mid-week weigh in. Alas....not to be. My mid-week showed I had lost 3#. But somehow, 1.5# found their way back. So....I lost 1.5#, not the 3 I had hoped fo... Read more

I was on-call last night. And got two pages for possible kidney transplant. At 2am and then 2:30am. By the time I had finished w/those, I couldn't go back to sleep. Sleep eludes me even when I'm not on call. So nothing unusual about that. ... Read more

Well....I think I can finally say I'm back in the saddle again. It's been a little over 2 months that I fell off and believe it or not, the damage I did to myself wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. I attended a bereavement cou... Read more

Wow! what a whirlwind I've had the last couple of weeks. Ever since we decided to bring Dad home to live with us. Everything suddenly went into over drive! Luckily, I've stayed true to SP and have lost another 2 lbs (at least, my mid-week ch... Read more

My husband has always weighed less than me. Even when I was skinny, before kids....he's always weighed less than me. Of course, back then it was only a 5lb weight difference. Now it's a 30lb difference. But still. I guess I have it in... Read more
