Our camping vacation was 12 days this time, longer than previous trips. My history was: start the trip at one weight, then vacation, and come home 5# heavier. I was determined this wouldn't happen, but self-talk plays wicked games with my re... Read more

The answer for me came about in an "AHA" moment during a previous weight loss experience. At that time I had reached my driver license weight of 150#( it was a brief encounter). I have a wide range of friends and I expected that someone... Read more
