Fun and busy weekend. My nutritional values were very out of balance, but still within my range, more on the low end. Even had a piece of homemade chocolate cake at my grand-nephew's 3rd birthday party yesterday. And wolla! I felt good this mo... Read more

Breaking the plateau
Thursday, October 29, 2015      5 comments

After 3 months, I finally broke through my first plateau! I was getting worried and started doubting myself. What if that was it? What if I wasn't good enough to keep losing weight? Am I too obsessed with the scale? What do I do if I keep gain... Read more
