    I am very excited today.

    What In The HELL Is The Deal?

    You so-called proponents of 'healthy' lifestyles: I'm not sure, but I kind of think that the main reason a person might be sharing their struggle on this site, with their appearance and in particular, weight loss, is so that they can express themselves in a place that is non...

    Had to giggle last night.

    My hubby and I took a brisk walk and he was "done" before I was even close. He said "man I'm outta shape, I need to start working out with you". It will be nice to have a workout partner.

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    and more attention to when I'm actually hungry instead of when I'm used to eating. Am I really hungry when I wake up? When I get home from work? I find a lot of the time it's that I need water. If I feel hungry I drink a full glass of water and then wait 15 minutes. If I'm still...
