I was looking at some photos of myself earlier. There aren't many photos that exist of me between 1995 and now. I didn't really like having my picture taken as I HATED the way I looked. I would cry and tell Mike, "I just don't remember HOW... Read more

WOW! Since January 2009, I've made quite a bit of progress. Personally and physically. I've lost 51 pounds as of June 30, 2009. I didn't think I could do it at first. It just seemed over-whelming. But I did it. I set a goal of wei... Read more

I feel pretty good about tomorrow's weigh-in (if I get to go). I've eaten better this week -- got in some time on the mini-tramp -- a bit less stress. So, if I go tomorrow, I won't stress out and I won't worry. If I haven't lost weight, I... Read more

Again today I've gone over my Iron and under my potassium. For some reason, I do this almost daily. I'm seriously considering switching to a Daily vitamin that doesn't provide Iron. As far as potassium, I suppose I need to make a list of pot... Read more

I've given myself a reward for the 48 pounds I've lost. But I was thinking last night, how do I pay this forward? The more I thought about it -- the clearer the answer became. When I am at 75 pounds lost, I'm going to go out and buy $75 ... Read more

Small scare first: My daughter called me last night from Flagstaff -- she was so sick. Daddy had to take her to a local ER -- she was throwing up and dehydrated. Food poisoning. She's AOK this morning and they're on the way to the Grand... Read more

In my dining room! I've made a nice corner of my dining room into a mini-gym. So far, I've got hand-weights in 1, 2, and 3 pounds. I've got my resistance bands and my hula-hop. I'll be adding the mini-tramp, stair-stepper, and exerci... Read more
