We went early this year, and to another location. This time, we drove to Ann Arbor after work last Friday, arriving at Grace and Stu’s at close to midnight. I had packed dinner for the car ride, but of course our hosts, clearly exhausted from their workdays, offered us food and drink, which we politely […]

This is not the same as match point. I have a set point which can go up easily but to get it to go down is very tough and with each passing year, it is tougher and tougher. As you may have guessed, it os all about my weight. Although i have been technically at […]

From whence do our anxieties hail? Last two nights finally caught up on some sleep and feel somewhat refreshed. Good things do keep happening – met a physician yesterday who may be interested in becoming involved in obesity treatment at some point in the next year or so; another physician might have some interest as […]
