Friday, May 29, 2009      7 comments

Third Wedding Anniversary Today -- 24 pounds heavier---Yikes!
Thursday, May 14, 2009      3 comments

I can't believe I gained 24 pounds in three years. The weird thing about it is that I have been trying to eat healthy most of that time. Looking back on it, two years were spent going to nursing school and four months were spent working nights... Read more
