I have been reading a book by one of the Biggest Loser contestants (Pete Thomas), I LOVE it!! He is very encouraging & supportive. I know I’ve loved a 100 diet books, but this one really seems to resonate with me. One thing he said is, he thin... Read more

April Plans Revised

I have not enjoyed this break very much! I keep eating things I know I shouldn't because I have a bad attitude - about not recovering fast enough, about being 10 pounds too heavy, about not wanting to sew or do anything much besides reading. I j... Read more
