I am such an ostrich. I was so tired of the lack of demonstrable success in over a month that I decided to weigh in just once a month - on my SP anniversary. However today, I just HAD to peek to see how things were going. Since I have ... Read more

I've had the word "mudwrap" on my SparkPage for a while - there is a story behind it (no pun intended - as you will learn). My friend and I treated ourselves to 10 days at a restorative spa in January. Now, before you get a picture of "a c... Read more

While out for my walk today I got to thinking how pleased I'll be when I lose 2 more pounds. That will put me at the weight I was in 5/88 (which I was NEVER going to be again) , just before my daughter was born. So, I decided to set mini-go... Read more

Here I have been exercising for the past 5 weeks on a regular basis - I would have thought that I was ALITTLE stronger, more flexble, etc. But one afternoon in the garden is a humbling reminder that I am not quite "there" yet. So - I'll contin... Read more
