A puppy, a newborn baby, a gallon of water...the human head. I've lost 8 pounds this week. RIGHT ON! I know the first week of any weight-loss program is always the most skewed as far as numbers...but I can't say I'm complaining. And n... Read more

I've fallen WAY off the wagon. I've put on more than 40 of the pounds I worked so hard to lose. My blood pressure is up. I'm lethargic. I can't walk and talk at the same time. My back hurts again. My feet hurt again. I don't sleep well. I'... Read more
