Fresh from the garden :)

Hello everyone I hope you are enjoying the last bits of summer! I was so excited about this, I just had to share! Yours truly, has a very nasty track record of killing off almost every plant she comes in contact with. So you can imagine my fear and frustration when I spent a ton…

Guess who’s still losing weight!

That would be….um…ME! WOOOHHOOO!!! I was so happy when I woke up, stepped on the scale and saw this number! I definitely had a special coffee to celebrate my new weight of 58,3 kgs or 128.5 lbs. Yeah Baby! I haven’t been as militant about losing the weight as I was when I was fighting…
