and then a lightbulb went off
I've been exercising with intent for exactly one day now.

I felt calm ... Read more
This has been a weird month for me, but I have come out on top. Unfortunately, that is where my weight is sitting also. Weighed myself this morning as a starting point, and I see now that I am at my highest weight. If I didn't face it, I would j... Read more
One Meal at a Time
