New NSV this week!
I had to purchase new denim pants for one of my jobs today, as all my others were worn (and getting loose). I haven't seen a non-scale victory in awhile, so I was pretty excited when I could buy a pair of pants that were one size smaller than th... Read more

I love this show. There are a couple other similar shows I like as well, but this one is so motivating!
I'm 4 episodes in. Now, it's an old series I happened to come across online. So it's no longer, as far as I know airing new episodes. I ... Read more

I have to say it's ... Read more
