I showed my hubby the Biggest Loser NFL week program and this morning he told me he had gone for a walk when he got home yesterday and was considering another when he got done teaching lessons. He said it's all my fault because I showed him the ... Read more

Declaring my plan is a risky thing because of previous failed attempts, though I know that if the plan doesn't work, you change the plan. The fact that you guys are waiting, and asking for details, I do feel the support! Hence the blog title. ... Read more
