  • Indulgence

    8/17/2017 1:01:14 PM, by TAPPY49

  • No Idea

    8/15/2017 2:14:12 PM, by TAPPY49

    I have no idea if I have dropped any pounds. I haven't weighed myself in a couple of weeks. My clothes are fitting looser and I look smaller, but I really have no clue whether it is just inches that I am losing. That would be okay as well. I thought I had bought a scale to weigh myself on, but I... Read more
