  • Fudge

    What I meant to say was fudging . . . As in fudging numbers! I use to do that with the scale. If my scale was up I would pretend I didn't weigh myself. Or if it was down 0.3 I could say it was "about" a half pound. When some one asked how much I had ...

  • An interesting observation!

    This morning I stepped on my Aria scale . . . the one that uploads my weight automagically with NO fudge factor.  It wasn't quite as bad as I had envisioned -- my total pounds lost now stands at 52.  The best I've ever seen is 60 and before I left fo...

  • Fat Pants

    I have often joked that I have lost 300 pounds . . . . 30 pounds x 10 times -- and of course gained it back the same way.  The not-so-funny part of the joke is that it is likely true.  But this time I promised myself it would be different.  I would l...
