Fri, 9 Mar 2018 02:32:13 EST I know how to be skinny and fat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5857431 Skinny is easy to get to. You cut calories and exercise every day! Sometimes 2x a day! But your mind has to be just right for this to happen. I haven't been "fat" since I got my mind right a few years back. But ive gotten gotten chunky. And being fat is much harder then the being skinny. Its harder on your emotions and self esteem. I dont have 30+ pounds to lose but 15 for sure! I am back on the skinny road and my mind is right again. <BR> <BR> Sparkle <em>8</em> Sun, 18 Jan 2015 21:17:31 EST Whole30 and ultra running http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5761065 I've tried whole30 and it works!!!
