Re: End of the year ritual

Sometime after the first of the year, I'm going to look into changing repayment plans. Right now I'm on a graduated payment plan, but I like the idea of being on the extended plan at plan at this point.

Re: Food =/= Nutrition?

I stopped reading all those posts. There are some people who thrive on disagreeing with others even if it makes for inconsistencies of their own. Responses on the board looked like the poster even turned on people trying to show sympathy. There's no [more]

Re: So this isn't LBYM...

Re: Dealing with time required to eat healthy

If I never lost another pound, I would be happy where I am. DH feels the same. He's happy to see me back to this weight. Any more is bonus and totally up to me.

Re: Dealing with time required to eat healthy

Are those numbers on the last line a goal & a stretch goal?

I ask because 130 @ 65" would give a BMI of 21.7 which is pretty low. Now for someone who doesn't have a lot of muscle or who has a very light frame, it would make more [more]

Re: An open letter

At CVS the robocall calls to tell you your Rx is ready whether you want it to or not. This includes when you are at the front of the store using the photo machine, and you've told the pharmacy you will be there since you just gave them the Rx. [more]
