Thursday, May 23, 2013      25 comments

Big thanks to everyone who commented on my "Freaking Out" blog. I was, in fact, freaking out. Perhaps prematurely, it seems. I'm still steadily losing weight but more slowly (as expected at this point). As you all pointed out to me, this is ... Read more

I need a reality check, Sparkfriends. I have only lost 2.6 lbs this month. Last month, I lost 10. At the rate I'm going, I don't think I'll meet my goal for the month (another 3 pounds). Here is what I'm doing. Tell me what, if anything... Read more
