This picture is from Ron Knutson’s website – it’s a visual reminder of what I want to learn to do when I get to my goal weight. I won’t start out on a champion cutter like this magnificent animal, but on a horse better suited for novice cutting riders and one I can hopefully use […]

I like the idea of requiring fast food restaurants to post calorie counts next to menu items. It’s not costly for them to do so and will help many people make better choices about what they eat. Click here to go to a website with more information including an easy to fill out letter to […]

I’ve been looking at other people’s before and after pictures and realized I have never, in my adult life, been anything but overweight. So I really don’t know what my face will look like, lol. Kind of a weird feeling that one morning I might wake up and go “Hmmm so THAT’s it!” My siblings […]
