    7/6/2020 12:01:42 PM, by NINESHY

Imagine my surprise when the number that stared back at me was 191—nine pounds shy of... Read more

    7/6/2020 5:03:44 AM, by ~INDYGIRL

    A lapse is not a relapse. One choice that’s not as healthy does not undo all the other healthy choices we’ve made. That one choice also doesn’t mean we have to keep making unhealthy choices all day until morning and start over. Look, one unhealthy choice has far less impact than a who... Read more
