“She believed she could and so she did.” I am going to be straight-up about this motivational saying: I’d love to say that I lost 140lbs because of this attitude. Yes, I believed in myself and I handled it: I just grabbed life right by the knackers, by the giggle berry brass clankers, and just […]

A Postcard From The Golden Trout Wilderness (aka Yes, You Can!)

When I wrote this post on Instagram, I dedicated it to the ladies in the purple shirts. The reference comes from the a discussion of “before” pictures, in particular the one at the very bottom of this post. Jayme coined the term. Shelley posted a picture in a purple shirt and off we went. I […]
