Mom and I have challenged each other to a Bigger Loss Off. I started at 158.0 pounds last Saturday and I think I might actually accomplish this. We'll be doing this for 2 weeks, finishing on March 27. My strategy is to do the Level 1 of the... Read more

This past meeting was a bit more of a specific goal. We were to eat 45 grams of carbohydrates with each meal and 30 with our snack. One serving of fruit is about 15 grams. So is a slice of bread. There was a bit of a list and it is good to read ... Read more

I've been eating a lot better than before. The point has been to eat one serving of vegetables and one serving of fruit with every meal. That's actually easier than it seems. Especially if you don't mind drinking V8 V Fusion Light. It's got both... Read more

I thought I'd stop punishing myself and regretting bad choices and focus on how far I have come. When I started Weight Watchers, I was 191 pounds. I could not sleep comfortably on my side, I looked old and I was unhappy. Since I've los... Read more

Last night I didn't get the sleep I needed. I went to bed late and tossed and turned all night. And that really struck a blow because I did not have the energy to go for my run. I'll have to do it tomorrow but I work until midnight tonight. If I... Read more
