Even keel

Just a super-fast update.  Family is still here visiting from out of town, having a great week.  Weighed in yesterday, didn’t lose anything.. didn’t gain anything.  Not upset about it at all.  In fact, I’d planned for just that.  Random thought/tip for the week:  It is so important to remember that you cannot force yourself … Continue reading
