Um, I do! :) I was out for breakfast a few weeks ago with a friend of mine. She's about 30 years my senior, but also a big girl, and we have a fun camaraderie together. She's totally kooky like me and we seem to really get each other. I ... Read more

So it's week two of the scale not moving so much. It's still going down, but definitely not as much as I want/expect it to given how hard I've been working, this week in particular. I refuse to believe that I've hit another plateau already. I... Read more

Well...I lost a pound this week. Actually, I lost JUST UNDER a pound this week. And I'm disappointed. But I'm not disappointed because I can't explain the low week. I'm disappointed because I thought I could get away with something, and ... Read more
