Well, That Was Quick

I was at 195.3 first thing in the morning on the scale today. That’s a gain of 3 pounds in 4 days. That’s what happens when you let yourself go and make bad food choices. It can happen THAT QUICK.

It Has To STOP, And Be REVERSED…NOW

I got on the scale this morning and it read 198.1 pounds. I wish I could say this was insanity. But, I know why the number is that high. It’s all my fault. Bad food choices. No portion control. You … Continue reading
