Lori's Road to Losing Weight
Follow along as I try to lose weight by my 50th birthday in April 2010. 

If you are a lover of food and wine like I am, you know how hard it is to resist, say no, take only one bite or a sip.  Well, each week I will be reliving my challenges and successes by writing it down for all to read.
Dear Reader,

Happy Autumn!  We have been having more fun with wine and food.  We have been staying home a bit more but have had many great adventures none the less.  Below are our most recent blog/articles we have written; most have a number of pictures for you to enjoy along with the article.  You can read about our adventures with food and wine or up and coming wine festivals, plus much more.  As you will most likely notice Larry and I have different writing styles.  Larry seems to go more into detail on the wine we tasted and I like to give more of a description of everything we did during the event.  We hope you enjoy our articles.  If you do, you can subscribe on either my blog or on the discussion forum (RSS, at bottom of page).  By doing this you will receive an email with the articles as they are posted.  Happy Reading!

La Chaim' - To Life!

Don't worry, drink happy!
