Does anyone have some to spare? Willpower that is!! I have no idea where this appetite came from. But, in the past week or so following a month long illness (nothing serious)...I just can't get a grip on overeating. I was at the doctor last ... Read more

I made a bad choice last night. Some friends stopped by with a tray of holiday goodies. Every thing on the tray had about 1 million grams of sugar. I felt obligated to eat some. Today I'm reaping the effects. Physically feel terrible. When ... Read more
