Spring 5% can't get here fast enough

Saturday, March 10, 2012      5 comments

No matter what I do, my weight bounces within a couple of pounds. After serious consideration I've decided to overrule my doctor's suggested goal weight and bump it up 5 pounds to what seems reasonable for me. At 57 years old, I shouldn't b... Read more

Circumventing Lack of Willpower
