    Despite not getting to blog for a few days, I still kept track. I was NOT perfect, but I keep on trying. I did what I said I was NOT going to do and I weighed myself. Down 4 lbs!!! That subconsciously gave myself permission to eat off track. So I have 3 days to post on here. It was Father's Da... Read more

It's more viewed from the outside, now: I'm fat, like I am 5' 6" tall, and I have blue eyes. My weight is not more important than my blood sugar, my cholesterol n... Read more

Starting over is the bravest way to say that you’ve tried, you’ve learned, and you want to try again with your new knowledge. You aren’t a failure for knowing when to pick up the pieces and star...
