    Congrats on losing twenty pounds and keeping it off. That’s great. Now, about those bathrooms… 😉

      Thank you! I know, those bathrooms. It is mostly the boys bathroom I put off. LOL…wonder why.

      • Carrie Rubin · August 19, 2015

        I don’t blame you at all. I make my teen sons clean their own bathroom. I don’t want to tackle that scary place!

      • 2bcreativeblog · August 19, 2015

        I still do the toilet and shower. The boys do the sink and mirror. Their turn is coming though. Lol

    I dropped 20 this year on a gluten free dealy wheely. I guess if I could take sugar all the way out I could lose more, even on this ancient left knee.

    • 2bcreativeblog · August 25, 2015

      I just watch my portions and variety. If I cut sugar bet id drop more too but got enjoy a bit. Moderation is key.

  3. dougstuber · August 25, 2015

    I dropped 20 this year via gluton-free. now if I could only stop eating any sugars at all….hehe. Nice to find your blog, most interesting.

    Congrats on losing the weight! I like your journal idea…very fascinating and easy to see the differences all in one place. I noticed there isn’t much said for the year 2014. Anyways, thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s always great to see a happy face and reading your comments. They truly make my day!

    • 2bcreativeblog · September 7, 2015

      Thank you! I love your blog. Ya I must not have paid attention to the journal that year. Darn it. Lol
