WeightJournal – October 2, 2015 – Puppy sighting!


In this week’s video – recorded live from one of our local parks – I babble about how our bodies tend to try and get rid of weight if we stay out of their way. I think I probably have talked or written about this before, but it keeps coming to mind. Once a person is 50+ lbs overweight, our bodies actively start trying to lose some of that weight/fat.

WeightJournal, August 13th, 2015 – All about exercise!


I know, I know, normally when I’ve taken a couple weeks away from this journal, it means I’ve started gaining a ton of weight.

My message to Jeb Bush

Bush’s full quote is: “it’s a huge challenge for single moms to raise children in the world that we’re in today, and it hurts the prospects, it limits the possibilities of young people being able to live lives or purpose and meaning”

That might not be true in the future, but as of May 2015, it is the solution.

You’re welcome!  :)
