I''ve been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off and failing so I made it simple: this time I won''t fail. I got back on the wagon Monday 6/23/14. I''m excited (and a little nervous) to see where this journey is going to take me.
