We tried for many years to tried to make it work off and on for our kids but we just couldn't make it work. I dated and quickly realized that wasn't what I was ready for and people are so quick to judge you because you are obese and dating. So, I decided to stay single. <BR> The good thing about 2014 is that I lost 70 pounds! My S... Sun, 11 Jan 2015 19:51:43 EST Before!
