  • Invitation for All

    4/5/2018 6:25:06 PM, by JENNIFERQUINLAN

    So, the other day I blogged about observations during my weight loss journey that started in January 2018. One area I learned a lot about myself in was the area of challenges.

    Since the end of 2016, I have had two surgeries: one at the end of 2016 and one at the end of 2017.
