Today's weight: 213.0 pounds

Day 3: Another Day, Another Dollar
One nice thing about weekdays is the fact that I can't just sit there and snack as easily as I do on my couch. I had my breakfast; I had my lunch; I had my dinner. Had a little bit of ice cream for dessert. I bought myself some last Monday be... Read more

I said YES!
To what, you ask?
Well, 'A' proposed to me on Christmas morning in front of his entire family!!
