Thursday, April 18, 2019      1 comments

I have always been a optimistic and positive person. I simply choose to be positive. Yet, the last time around, when I regained the 125lbs I had lost, I somehow lost my spark, my positivity. I am sure I was dealing with depression (didn’t ... Read more
Day 116 - slow and steady now
Wednesday, April 17, 2019      2 comments

I know I have been eating right the last few days and did again today. I do weigh myself every day (but take my weekly averages to establish a trend). I would lie if me being on a plateau, or even gaining a pounds or two doesn’t make me nervous.... Read more

A bit disappointed today that I was not as active as I had planned. Went to train the dog, but didn’t get anything done around the house. Was gung-ho yesterday, even got up early this morning. Somehow didn’t feel like doing anything. Was reading... Read more
