We've all been asked. "How are you losing the weight?" I was asked as recently as this AM at the grocery. It's almost like they think I've found some secret method. My standard answer is watching calories and carbs and Spark People. That's ... Read more

I'm stepping away from the scales. I think it was great motivation when I had weight to lose. But now I'm concentrating too much on the number - not on what good choices I'm making daily. See...your comments do make a difference for me!! : )... Read more

For two weeks, I have been following the first week of my eating plan, which has lower calories/carbs. It's meant to jump start you when you begin. I thought that perhaps a couple weeks of doing this would kickstart my body into losing again (... Read more

I'm kinda with Tessa in the hubby department. He just doesn't notice or verbalize that he notices the healthy improvements I've made. He sees me everyday, so I'm sure it's harder to notice than others who don't see me as frequently. ANYWAY...... Read more

Today was a tricky food day - mostly because there was no eating plan. I don't typically do well without a plan. Our church hosted a one day VBS for the kids from 10-4 so parents could go shopping. COOL!! We found that by the time we d... Read more
