Almost gave up
Crazy, busy, out of whack life...spiraled into depression and using sugar and caffeine to get through the day.
At my highest weight ever...but today is a fresh start. For some reason I have gotten out of the habit of drinking water and goi... Read more

The numbers are going the WRONG WAY!
Haven't been on in a long time, and totally fell off the wagon over the holidays. Had a lot of fun, but ate a lot of food I didn't need or really want. The result, one pound away from 300. Went back to the pool last night. Took it easy, real... Read more
