  • Mama, there goes that man!

  • 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...

    Part of the game here on MFP is to weigh in. There are discussions as to how often, what brand of scale to buy, and even the most favorable conditions to weigh in under (I wrote that!) Today I was thinking about the best scale for weighing in. Why? M...

  • 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...
