I'm so thankful that the BLC started when it did, I have really been struggling. In the past, I have made weight loss my focus and allowed it to throw off the balance of my other goals. I got what I wanted fairly quickly and no longer had the co... Read more
Is it Better to Have Lost and Gained Than to Have Never Lost at All?
Thursday, December 18, 2014      3 comments

I made this list of my most common situations/foods that set me off. I'll add to it as I come across more and remember. Fries and Bacon both are carelessly left out at work. I automatically get charged each shift for any food I consume... Read more
