On A Plateau......Yikes I am so tired of it!
Sunday, August 16, 2015      7 comments

I guess I am just going to be on this plateau until I figure out that I will just have to move a lot more than I have been to shed the last 9 lbs. It is driving me crazy so I may as well get serious and get it over with. I have certainly prove... Read more
