Day 111

Today is the day! I picked Leslie up from the airport last night, and it was so wonderful to have her here.

Day 103

Again, the only transgression of yesterday’s intake was the peanuts. I think I am doing okay. I am once again down ever so slightly from yesterday, and I hope to continue on the path… a little bit lower every day. I know it will take a year or more to reach my goal, but I... Continue Reading →
