Not that! I've recently purchased several of the "Eat This... Not That" books and I must tell you, I really like them. They offer great nutritional info and insights into many restaurants and products on today's market. These are wond... Read more

Sunday, June 22, 2014      5 comments

I can report a few NSVs (Non-Scale Victories): My clothes are much looser. It won't long until I'm down another size. My rings: I can wear them comfortably and they don't make my fingers swell! I am not so easily winded or tired. ... Read more
Odd weigh-in
Friday, June 20, 2014      3 comments

I've been out working with Mike twice this week -- the scale is showing no loss. Am I at an early plateau or am I holding too much sodium? I think I'll wait until Sunday for my "official" weigh-in. I know my muscles are sore and I'm ex... Read more

Wednesday, June 18, 2014      8 comments

I have a lot of weight to lose. It's almost overwhelming, but I will do it. I want to do it. However, from 291 to 140 is 151 pounds. There's no way around it, either. No quick fixes, no miracle cures. Just hard work, healthy eating, and movi... Read more

Wednesday, June 11, 2014      9 comments

Everyone I know tells me to eat fresh Salmon once a week for it's health benefits. That's great, except... I really don't like it. Usually, if I put it on my plate, it's too dry. I am going to buy some this weekend and try grilling i... Read more

Skipped meal... unintentionally
Monday, June 09, 2014      5 comments

My youngest daughter stopped by today for a too-short visit. She'd already eaten, so I... forgot to eat lunch. Not smart. We're having roasted pork with fresh red potatoes and Vidalia onion tonight. That's a good meal and I'll add some br... Read more

Yesterday, I was so sick... I slept more than half the day away. Today, I feel great! Going to spend the day with Mike and take a walk around Lake Meyer. It's about 2 miles. I know I may have to take a rest stop or two, but that's okay. H... Read more
