Hi, everyone! I have taken a much-needed break from the computer for a bit, but will be back posting tomorrow — got some good ones coming up! Weight-wise, I’ve stayed the same, which is actually my goal for the moment. We’ve had a lot of stress, so my goal is to be human, deal with […]
Woman gets addiction treatment for ‘Coke’ – UPI.com Now, see! And people laughed when I said I was addicted to Diet Coke 😉 Happy to report, I am free of the Diet Coke compulsion for today.
Is it easier for men to avoid tempting food?

A little Greek mythology humor… Now for the sleep… 😉
