These last few weeks have been a mixture of really great highs and a really angering and disgusting low of a discovery. On the getting healthy aspect, I've been super successful since adding the IF in. I'm now just ounces away from getting to ... Read more

I've been on a plateau for most of the last 9 weeks. I'd lose a little, hit a wall, lose a little more, hit another wall and so on and so on. I'd tweak my eating plan and that would work for just a tiny bit but then it would be back to the sam... Read more

Wednesday, August 14, 2013      5 comments

Success isn't only measured by my scale. Sometimes it's measured by weight loss , sometimes by inches lost. Sometimes it's measured by just doing what I'm supposed to do for the day, for the week and for the month. Most of all, It's measured ... Read more
