The Scale Moveth Not

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      11 comments

Just an acknowledgement here. I haven't had a scale victory -- I've had many other victories -- but no weight loss. I am at 254. So, I'm glad for the 34 pounds and all of the healthy changes I've made. I'll have to change it up, exercise cons... Read more
