Better Than 198.1

I got on the scale this morning and it read 195.7 pounds. Of course, it’s easy to look at that number and scream “That’s 21 pounds overweight!” But, it’s better than the 198.1 that I had one the scale one … Continue reading

It Has To STOP, And Be REVERSED…NOW

I got on the scale this morning and it read 198.1 pounds. I wish I could say this was insanity. But, I know why the number is that high. It’s all my fault. Bad food choices. No portion control. You … Continue reading

Oh, My, God!

I got on the scale this morning and it read 196.8 pounds. I guess that ENTIRE PAN of thick, walnut, brownies that I ate on Monday BY MYSELF did some damage. Actually, the way I eat everyday now is terrible. … Continue reading

I went for a 5K run after breakfast today. It’s the first time in 12 days that I have been running. Too many things going on now – plus my depression. Although, I did go for two 3 mile (back … Continue reading
