    11/27/2014 10:31:56 AM, by WINDSONG26

    To all my dear friends and family out there who take tomorrow as the one day they give themselves permission to eat all they want, please rethink this!!! It's not worth it and if you're a food addict like me it could be the day that leads to a thousand more days of nonstop eating. I, myself, cannot ... Read more

    I've got a lot of projects going on right now. It's a good thing I got used to multi-tasking years ago. This is probably saving me right now.
