Since I have a new job, I indulged in a bit of shopping today. I decided to get some capri-length jeans and a top. I tried on the size I believed I needed, but they were too baggy. I had to take a smaller size! I haven't worn that size in oh... Read more

This weight loss thing is as much of a head trip as it is a physical activity. We have to use our minds too. I have such a time doing what is right, so what is in my head? Do I honestly think I can do it? Is my desire to indulge in a bag of ... Read more
