Week 25 On The WW Return

They had me at 190 on the scale tonight – which is a loss of two-tenths of a pound. But, what is a loss of THREE OUNCES…seriously? Plus, I was wearing shorts whereas I usually wear jeans when getting weighed … Continue reading

I went for a 5K run after breakfast. It was humid. But, it was overcast and cooler than the last few days. While I was running, I thought about things that make me angry. And, for sure, that helped keep … Continue reading
