I am so disappointed in myself. I keep gaining and losing the same 10 pounds. I get motivated and do well for a few weeks, then the motivation wanes and I'm right back where I started again. I don't think there is anything about losing weight... Read more

To Weigh Or Not To Weigh Daily, That Is The Question?
Tuesday, August 18, 2015      8 comments
