I slept for 9 hours last night! What a wonder! I have only done that a few times in my adult life. I feel great. Probably a result of better eating. I started cutting back on my meat intake and concentrating more on vegies but keeping thing... Read more

I had my blood work done today for my physical next week. I don't know if I want to know the results. I am guessing it will pretty much be the same. I have "only" lost 15 pounds but I suppose the low carb eating may positively effect things.... Read more
