Tuesday, February 18, 2020      7 comments

It took me a year to loose 14 pounds. It took me a month to gain back 5. It took repeated gain weeks to dredge up my old Stinkin Thinkin. It's got to go! I am out of control, talking and treating myself in ways I NEVER would treat or talk ... Read more

Like a brick falling on my head, it occurred to me this morning,(as I was pleased as punch with a one pound loss for the week), that my expectations for myself are not in line with my 5% challenge. To lose 5%, about 1.5 pounds a week is what I ... Read more
