That's totally what I feel like these days. I went shopping on Thursday night...just for fun...at Kohl's. It is still very surreal to me to shop in the "normal" sizes. My whole adult life, I've been overweight. It's honestly been at least 21... Read more

Now, before you misunderstand...the "coach" was extremely nice, very knowledgeable, and so helpful and encouraging! BUT...she asked me how things have been going, and, although I *have* managed to lose six pounds since I got the BodyBugg at Chr... Read more
