Remember that reward for hitting "onederland"?

Saturday, May 05, 2012      4 comments

It hit me well after my weigh-in yesterday that I promised myself a reward if I ever got the scale into "onederland". Of course, when I made that promise initially a few years ago, part of me thought it would never happen in my lifetime! ... Read more
