Fred and William Hutchinson

As you may have read, I am riding in a cycling event, Obliteride, that is a fund-raised for the cancer institute where I also work and have worked for the past 9+ years, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Maintenance Plan

Okay, so you achieved your goal, now what? It’s time for a plan to maintain your good fortune. You certainly didn’t work your way down to your current amazing weight to rocket on back to your old weight. I know I haven’t.
