Yes, it's New Year's Day, but that isn't the reason I'm writing this now. I realized it's been almost a year since I've blogged. Why blog when you're either gaining weight or losing the same few pounds over and over. On track for a few days, the... Read more

My weight loss has been similar to the football season
Friday, November 23, 2012      8 comments

I went to college at the University of Iowa and grew up near there so I'll always be an Iowa Hawkeye fan. I knew the season was going to be a rough one with young players and lots of injuries. I didn't have much hope for a very good season. Unfo... Read more
