Well, it had to happen sometime. For the first three weeks of the month I showed multi-pound losses at each weigh-in. Yesterday I only had a loss of 0.2 pounds for Week 4. And I admit, I was a little bummed about it. But then I realized ... Read more

ACCOMPLISH! One thing I've learned about myself is that I'm a GREAT planner, but I don't always follow through with my plans. 2011 will be the year that I actually set goals and meet them. I will have to organize my time better than I... Read more
