I guess that's sort of what being on a bulletin board talking to someone that you've never met is like. that can be good. and it can be hard when it's over. I have a real wife. a real life.

I think i did actually hope somebody would intercede. I'm sorry i already did the nap. I think i will start today by revealing that I'm the most jealous person on the planet when it comes to my wife, and the most buttoned up afraid person on the planet when it comes to getting out there.

sometimes I don't know why I come on here and mention things but I'm planning to take a nap in place of urban Ranger and shovel glove. I would like to do them later but if I don't do them by noon I won't do them at all

I don't have any fuss about your way it sounds like a good way to do it I'm probably going to start doing it myself it sounds like a good trade off between weighing once in awhile and not ever weighing... which is right where I want to be.


Have a nice day!!

Oolala53 that's a great way of making yourself more sane by weighing less often I think that is one of the keys to long-term weight loss when you say change of the seasons do you mean the official dates or do you just sort of decide based on weather patterns ect I also like the idea of not allowing ...

January quantified..

january was a month of change. It all went so fast i never really stopped much to think what all was bugging me. but i certainly had a pretty poor month for getting things done. i struggled with laziness and sleeping too much for a good part of the month before i regrouped and came at it from a diff...
