Follow the musings of A. Orca in A. Orca's Thoughts and Observations, an ongoing search for a plan for healthy living. (Updated 12/12/98, added 8/30/98).
If you've come across any words of wisdom in the area of weight, size acceptance, nutrition, and/or exercise, let me know! I'll be glad to post them here!
This is an ongoing effort, and I'd really like to have input from as many folks as possible. What's worked for you? What have you seen/read/heard that you think would work for others? Post you input in the OrcaTalk Forum, or email to me and I'll post it here.
Oh yeah - Share what doesn't work along with what does?
