Disgusted but Determined

Sunday, August 11, 2013      5 comments

It's been a long time since I've taken the time to really focus on myself and boy does it show. I did the one thing I kept telling myself I wouldn't do: I gave up. I let the scale dominate my life rather than being just another measurement. In t... Read more

The Scale Wins Again

Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

I think my scale has declared war on me. I know it sounds crazy... an inadament object declaring war, but my scale is a little evil. I think it's in cahoots with my body. So yesterday was my official weigh in day and since I've been fighting a p... Read more
