What I Did To (WID2)… Lose Weight (Coasting)

In July 2006, I posted my weight -- 185 -- on The Motley Fool.  I said I'd been there for about a year.  So really, all that weight was weight I'd lost up until the point where Rich and I started dating.  For that first year, we saw each other once every two or three… Continue reading What I Did To (WID2)… Lose Weight (Coasting)

What I Did To (WID2)… Lose Weight (Kid to First Job)

  I’ve been at least plump since the fifth grade, when the snap on my jeans wouldn’t hold while we were doing the shuttle run in gym class.  And then the zipper didn’t hold either, and I had to finish holding up my pants while the kids around me either laughed or, in one case,… Continue reading What I Did To (WID2)… Lose Weight (Kid to First Job)
