I was an exercise junkie
I have been sidetracked this year... I think I put on a few pounds but I haven't stepped on the scale in a while to verify it. I need to refocus and find the inner athlete again. I was an exercise junkie last year. The rush of working out...... Read more

Prime of My Life
My husband made a reference yesterday about how we never went anywhere when we were in our "prime". I don't believe that was my prime. Maybe MY prime is today, or in the future. I feel better than I did in my 20's. I am not 300 pounds..., be... Read more
