Why is this so damn hard?

Thursday, July 14, 2011      21 comments

OK - I admit. If I would have known just how hard this whole thing was going to be, I would have watched what I ate and gotten more exercise YEARS ago. Even when I started with this journey, my weight seemed to just fall off of me. I work... Read more
