Okay, so I overdid it a bit this weekend and the scale crept up a bit. So What?! You know, I am seriously not let down by this. I am human and I slip up every so often. I see it as one step back, 2 forward! It's not as if I'm going to get t... Read more

Spoiler! I will probably be WAY over my calorie allotment today. It is my daughter's Spring Concert and we are going out afterwards with friends for pizza and "bad food". I will certainly try to keep it under control though. Wish me luck... Read more

Oooo, today I was just so darn hungry. I have really not been feeling at all deprived, until today. I ate it all..... and right before weigh in day too. Nothing, I mean, nothing was going to stop me from eating what I wanted. Sigh. Well, l... Read more

I just had to get this off my chest. Please bear with me. My daughter brought home a friend today, to work on a school project. On the way home we all talked and the topic became vegetarianism. The young lady stated she doesn't eat much ... Read more

Now that I've reached the impossible 10 pound loss, I feel like I can really do this and lose that remaining 15! My size 12's are looser, but yet not quite comfy in the the 10's. Still I am feeling very hopeful! ... Read more

We are going out to dinner tonight and that is a constant challenge for me. I KNOW what are the right choices, but I always feel deprived with the dry grilled chicken or boring fish items. It seems that going out is an expense and why should I... Read more
