Friday, October 09, 2015      17 comments

Dr. Beck says that our lowest achievable weight is the weight at which you naturally plateau. I'm not sure I actually did it exactly the way she is talking about. I hit the top of the Weight Watcher goal weight range for 5'6", 155 pounds and off... Read more
