Soooooo... much as I hate to say it, I have gained back all the weight plus an additional 10 pounds. I have lost large amounts of weight on three separate occasions but this time I have bumped back up to the original high number. I've spent a lo... Read more

My hometown's annual 5k was today but I had never raced it before. I've done a lot of 5k's but always sign up for the walk b/c I'm a pretty fast walker. I decided to sign up for the run to see how I'd fare since it was on my turf. Little did I k... Read more
