Well, I was doing so well! I had been sober for 3 months and I had lost 24 lbs. Then my Mom died. I really thought that I was strong enough to work through it without a slip, but that didn't happen. So here I am, 1 month later, back at squar... Read more

That is what I am doing, stepping out of denial. A recent Doctor's visit has helped me to open my eyes and look around at where I was headed. Right back up to where I started. I am NOT going back there! I knew I had gained some w... Read more

This broken toe business has me all sorts of flustered! All that I can say is "WHY NOW!" I just busted through the plateau that I have been on for 3 months and now I can't do all of the exercise that I had planned out. I know that my ... Read more
