I got to work and found a big "community" jar of jelly beans and a 5 pound bag of peanuts. Those beans are right near the top of my favorite candy; chewy, crunchy and sweet. I opened one peanut and said to myself, “I am not hungry” and ate one... Read more

I have to keep reminding myself that pinning my emotions on weight drop is like watching the stock market news on TV. I am going to get serious about measuring body fat. My aerobic fitness is increasing. That counts and I can feel it. My wif... Read more

No weight loss last week, but I have dropped a bit in my waist, hip and neck. Muscle is heavier than fat, so that is the kind of exchange I like! I am getting more involved in Spark People. I modified my page to tell of my miracle, I have bee... Read more
