I have nothing of interest to say. Right now it is just more of the same. I am doing well mentally LCing, but I am finding the rate of weight loss to be frustrating emotionally. I fear I will lose motivation. I'm angry with myself for caving... Read more

So, that I know of, I've never blogged publicly in my LIFE. Well there is a first time for everything... like being thin and happy and over 50. And staying that way. That is my goal: to KEEP the weight off. I don't want to feel it; I don't... Read more
