A Wiser Body

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      14 comments

I read on two other blogs of maintainers that their body lets them know when they've overeaten. One really got sick. I've got to say I've noticed a little of that, too. When I weighed 210+ pounds I hardly ever had indigestion. My body adjus... Read more
