crossing the abyss
Hello, I am Terry. I have been reading and commented on some posts of those, who, are exhausted, or overwhelmed. The reality is, yes, there will be those days. The question is, what will you do when it crashes in on you? I had a day like that yesterday. Just past the 2 week mark doing...

Help, no measurable changes in last 4 weeks!

Back on track after 10 years!
In 1999, my new year's resolution was "go to the gym and get fit". Hubby then dragged me to Healthy Life where the gorgeous girl who managed it (can't remember her name now) pulled out Bill Phillips' book "Body For Life" and showed me a picture on the jacket of a girl...

Results not typical and other Wet Blankets
I need to write about this to get it off my chest so I can move on from the "Stinking thinking" and be success oriented. Yesterday I was talking to my husband about how a lot of females don't see huge changes until week 8 or 9 in BFL. I'm in the tail end of C1W6 and I've begun...
