Goodbye Monster Scale

It's not about the number on the scale. It's about how physically fit and healthy you actually are.

CARB SMART VICTORY

When I limit my carbs I control my cravings. I have discovered this way of eating works for me. I can walk away from sweets, or find a different way of making sweets that don't trigger a craving.
