Water, Water Everywhere...

The questions: "Why Me?" and "Why NOT Me?"

First thought after losing 10 lbs..."there must be some sort of mistake!"
Funning thing happened this morning. I felt lighter. Hmmm…what’s going on here, I wondered. I decided to go weigh myself on the ‘official’ doctor’s office scales upstairs (I work in a medical building). What? 272.8? Why that’s like 10 lbs. lost ... Read more
