I am finally beginning to feel better after getting so exhausted last week. Even though we had snow this morning the roads cleared off and I decided to go down to the little cafe that has just opened in town. I need to make some friends here and... Read more

The title says it all. Even though my weight has gone down tiny amounts at a time, the shape of my body is changing and it is not for the better. I know I need to exercise. It's time to get serious about it. I am recovering from a surgery right... Read more
