TRUEMERCY's SparkPeople Blog TRUEMERCY's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Monday Mayday I'm going for it today. Back on Spark Being truthful. Real. This is my lifeline I do care about myself and how I look Stress eater. So get the stress out and enjoy real food at good portions and exercise and drink water, water, water. Putting myself first. Getting 5 lbs of water OFF by the weekend. Eating very little at dinner willdo the trick. Mon, 13 Mar 2017 21:17:36 EST Feelin like a fattie Ok so I have to get on track.
