Big Trucks, Big Gas Prices, and Unexpected Blessings.

This morning I got up, went... Read more
No weight loss this week :(
I didn't lose any weight this week. But I didn't gain any which that is good, since I had some set backs.

Bad Day = Small Set Backs
Well I haven’t posted in a couple of days so here is a recap.
Thursday was a bad day. It just started out poorly. And it was the kind of day that it was my fault it was bad. I started the day by beating myself up because my skin was bro... Read more
