Here's a first: Some guy offered to pump my gas for me today. He said that he didn't want me having the benzene exposure. It was very nice of him; of course, since I do 99 percent of the driving in my family, I've pumped plenty of gas so far.
I've lost 90 pounds since October 2007. And I still have more to go. There are lots of great things about having lost the weight; there are other things that have been difficult. I also write about my running and activity -- primarily so I have a record of it.
Now, though, I will be gaining some weight again -- as I'm due with my fifth child in early December. People (quite rudely) ask if I were planning to get pregnant. I'm 44; I always say we were "shocked but happy." I'm still following my diet plan; exercise has tapered off a bit, but not completely.
See the link to the plan I'm following below. Per FTC disclosure laws, I will mention that I received the elementalyou services for free. Additional services I have received free from Tiffany include her being the doula at my third child's birth as well as her providing child care and educational instruction to my children and her making me countless meals and margaritas (before I went on plan).
