  • 365 Days - 71 Lbs Lost - Smiles gained!

  • We've Only Just Begun

    So I've been taking a weekly yoga class for a few months now and I'm really enjoying it. It's not too hippy-dippy for my taste, and the instructor gives clear instructions but also says a lot of inspirational things. She also helps me up when I can't...

  • The Lady in the far distance!

    Sometimes, when I read a comment on my blog, and people call me inspirational, I feel like I should turn around and make sure they are not talking about someone else who is standing behind me. They cannot possibly mean me.  How did a fat lady like me...

  • Staying Strong

    I'm staying strong for my family.  When I became ill a little over 5 years ago it really scared me.  I was very dependent on my husband for the first time in my life and I didn't like it very much.  Once I was well again I got myself to the gym, chan...

  • Sometimes, I do mind!

    “Do you mind…?” These three little words often make me feel uncomfortable. I have been raised to be polite and kind to others -and I am- but sometimes I feel that this question it’s used to take advantage of me, and I don’t like that. “Do you mind….”...
