even when you're talking to yourself. It's time that I'm honest with myself. I'm not losing weight because I'm consuming too many calories. I'm gaining weight because I'm eating too much crap. I'm exercising but I could easily be doing more... Read more

This morning when I stepped on the scale it said 130. That's almost a full ten pound gain since January. Oh hell no! That's not going to do at all. SO, I reset my goals and am now allotted 1550 calories. It's going to take quite a bit of ded... Read more
