If you read my previous blogs, you'll see that I haven't been on here in over a year. But, that's not entirely accurate. Yes, I strayed away from my path to a healthier me. However, I was still stopping by to check in periodically. I would e... Read more
My Reasons
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      3 comments

I know that I have listed various reasons in different blogs and on different places...I want to list as many as I can here. Most people think that if they lose the weight, they will have a perfect life. I know that isn't the case. In fact, I... Read more

Updates - it's been 3 months!
