I'm still living out of suitcases. More suitcases- more wrinkled clothing. But, as tiring as it is, it's sort of like complaining that I have a great job, can travel and see new places, and have a family that is supportive of me doing this ... Read more

I've been living out of a suitcase for two weeks. Both weeks for work, long weeks of travel and sitting in meetings. Very exhausting, but it's been a really good 2 weeks. I learned a lot at all my training- met some dear friends- learned I can ... Read more

To tell my story and where it's found me today? I have only told a few people here on sp but it's time to 'come out of the closet' I suppose about my health. I am not a complainer. My family motto is "we do not give into these things",... Read more

I was talking to my mother about this issue yesterday- it was 42 years ago she put me on my first official 'diet' and I joined WW. She said I had been bugging her for awhile to join but they wouldn't let me until I turned 13. It made me feel sad... Read more

I'm still struggling with depression, and life, but I don't want to talk about it any more right now so I'm doing my weekly blog on something else. I'm not a big believer in regret. I like to think of it the way Frank Sinatra did "regrets, ... Read more
