My TRY-athlon aka Goals for the Week

Monday, October 20, 2014      3 comments

Back in 2005, I was a member of an online weight loss forum called Making it Mine. I searched for it and found it, which was cool because I was trying to find some weekly weigh in info I knew I posted. Was SparkPeople in existence back then? ... Read more
