It hasn’t been an easy journey. At my heaviest, I weighed 235 pounds. I was on steroids for RA and I was in a deep depression. Luckily, I pulled myself out of that funk. When I got off the steroids and got a great job, the weight started coming ... Read more

I went shopping for pants about two weeks ago. It had been years since I had really shopped for pants that fit. I had always bought the stretch jeans that really never gave a size. My husband had been begging me to buy "some real jeans". I kept ... Read more
