  • Getting through the day

    9/17/2014 1:19:02 PM, by ABARNES86

    Had kind of a disappointing weigh-in this morning. Better than when I looked last night, but still disappointing. I'll blame it on it being close to the start of That Time.

    9/17/2014 11:56:35 AM, by CZESTES

    I absolutely despise clothes shopping! Never have I been the shape that designers and manufacturers make clothing for. I am curvy, which is great to hide weight but not so great for buying pants. I don't even know what size I wear. Oh the horror! I have successfully altered shirts and skirts, b... Read more
