School is officially out as inclement weather kept us from getting on the road this morning. Honestly, I was glad to not be putting my boy into a vehicle with someone else driving when we've got ice on the roads. I feel a bit of trepidation ever... Read more

My son's birthday party was on Saturday and I was so stressed. Of the 6 people we invited, only 1 RSVPed and two were over an hour late. He had so wanted for these friends to come and while that may not be a first for him, it is definitely a rar... Read more

I was doing so well for a while there. I was down to 240, moving in the downward direction, steady in my pace. Then ... BOOM! I get rocked. I start gaining gobs of weight even through I'm more active than ever. My body starts hurting in ways and... Read more

I've been thinking for the last few days about why I have such trouble following the preset goals and milestones that seem to work for so many. I was thinking about it and what I came up with is that many of the goals deal with losing weight by ... Read more

It has been a long time but I'm committed. I've got the beginnings of a plan and I'm working on getting the rest of the tools I know I'll need. Since moving to a small town in Washington, I've realized that my town is a great way for me to get m... Read more

To understand what I'm going to write here, I need to lay down some back ground. When I was growing up we didn't have a lot of food. Mostly, we had soda. I remember even if we didn't have milk, or even the fixings for PB&Js, we had Pepsi. Being ... Read more

So, I went to bed last night cuddling my Buggy. He pretty much always sleeps with me. I'm ok with it for now. I have no idea what woke me up. Could it have been the smells? Was it the person talking on her cell phone saying "Wow that tree is on ... Read more
