Yesterday I saw my oncologist. I'm officially 1.5 years cancer free. Going for check-ups ever 4 months is a finger-crossing event. I know that getting my weight WAY down will decrease chances of cancer. Having gone through this fear... Read more

I'm staying at my parents' home in the Adirondacks for a few days while my mechanic repairs my car. CV joint and ... um a big engine-malady. My parents - in their 80's - are doing weight watchers. Since I'm not healthy and taking meds, no one... Read more
