Weight Loss

Hello from Virginia! I arrived yesterday after two delayed flights but we still made it here. I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon this weekend and decided to bring my mom along too.

My weight loss gamer changer

It's different for everyone and it's going to change over time.  Keep that in mind.  I've said it many many times.  The journey I took is different from the one Willie took and will be different from the one many people take. A lifestyle change is about developing new habits.  In our case, our lifestyle [...]

FYI: This is going to be a new section of the blog.  It's going to be the question of the week.  Sometimes I'll take questions from what people ask me or sometimes I'll talk about some questions that have come to my attention through reading and just normal life. This week I took the question [...]

This past weekend, I was at Fitbloggin in Savannah! There were lots of things for us to try while there. The biggest take away from the weekend was getting my numbers checked at the Walgreens Way to Well truck. Everyone needs to get their numbers checked. I spoke about how Willie and I didn't do [...]

I'm riding in the car back home father a really long day. Fitbloggin in Savannah has come to a close and I'm back in Texas. I'm not going to go into much detail right now about the conference because there are some things I really want to share with all you readers. I learned a [...]
