So I had to go to the doctor's to have blood drawn today. They did some blood work last week, and called to tell me everything was great. As a matter of fact, I have my results sitting in front of me, so let me just record them for posteri... Read more

So I'd always seen/heard/whatever people using these tracker things to, well, track food and activity. And I thought, hey I need to sign up for one of those. This one seemed good. I hope it turns out to be. Now that I've lost 120 pounds,... Read more
