Another Crazy Goony Adventure

Trying to recover from ACL replacement surgery while overweight was a wake up call for me. I don't want my weight to limit me from doing anything. I originally lost 75 pounds, but after I met my husband, I gained 50 pounds back! Now it is April 2011 and I ma getting back to getting healthy.
