Are you ready for this? I weighed in the AM @ 155.6 ! Yes! Yes! We can do it! That's the good news. The not so good news is I went to the doc, and he found I had high blood pressure. Where did that come from? He wants me back in a week o... Read more

Just a quick blog to gloat! :D I can't believe I've gotten down to the 150's- even as I type this, I have to think, "Is that really right?" Yep, it's 157 as we speak. I haven't seen the 150's for about 15 years. Well, it looks and feels REAL... Read more
