I'm sure I'm speaking for LOTS of SP'ers, but I sure do love a good weigh-in!! Today's weigh-in: 181.6!! Nearly a 3 pound loss since my last weigh-in, and more importantly, that puts me 2.6 pounds away from my goal weight of 179! The "ma... Read more

Not sure exactly what it was, but definitely felt out of sorts yesterday (Sunday). Was clearly sore from mowing on Saturday (did all of the back yard, which is close to an acre), was not thrilled with the colder air that moved in, and in spite ... Read more

I know for me time seems to be flying in general, but I think the past 366 days since I had my WLS moved at warp speed!! I could on and on about all the positive changes that have occurred, but I'll spare those of you who are reading thi... Read more
