Am I Willing To Work Harder to Get Off of This Plateau?
I don't think so. Honestly, I have lost 32-34 lbs the first 6 months of this 1.5 year lifestyle change. And I've stayed there no matter what I've changed with exercise or calorie intake. My body is fighting me and does not want to release any... Read more
