I'm a Midwestern Bible-believing hippie conservationist globe-trotting teacher. How is that for a contradiction? :) I was born at 10 pounds and I never looked back. I think I was 120 for one day in middle school! I remember in Kindergarten,... Read more

The Importance of Weighing In
Tuesday, January 27, 2015      11 comments

For probably more than a year, I haven't weighed myself. I've been afraid of the results. I knew I had gained a lot of weight, but I wasn't ready to see the numbers. So, not weighing, is the equivalent of an ostrich with his head in the sand.... Read more
