Trying to get up early and work out was not doable last week. I will have to sneak in cardio wherever I can, but I am at a point wh... Read more

    Weight loss is a lifetime challenge. In September I was on the mountain top with everything going so well and the weight dropping quickly.

    1/18/2021 5:54:08 AM, by JSTETSER

    Living any dream takes determination. It takes commitment. It takes courage and often going against the flow. Every day I just want to take one more step in the right direction.

    The wait for the return of a regular cycle continues... this one is longer than usual (but expected due to medication changes).
