This week was a tough week for me. I was doing great until Tuesday evening. I had my therapist appointment and thought it went well. I think it brought a few things up, well it must have, because all I wanted was frozen yogurt! So, I had gone to... Read more
The F Word..."Fat"
Last night...I was out with some friends for another friends birthday. I had finally gotten up the courage to wear my strapless top, even though I am super self-conscious about my arms. The night was going along okay, until we waited in line for... Read more
