Food Crisis

Thursday, January 10, 2013      6 comments

Thursday, January 03, 2013      3 comments

Well I had nine pages of blogs in 2012. That’s a crazy insane amount – but its therapeutic. I just read my 2011 recap and it was so positive. I lost most of my weight in 2011… not nearly as much as I would have liked in 2012, but I did gain ... Read more
