I was having a bit of a rough day today. Feeling a bit overrun by my cravings - salty. Think it has to do with "TOM" coming soon. Anyway, morning started off okay with oatmeal for brekkie and a Vector bar later for a snack. I came home for l... Read more

I had an epiphany of sorts tonight. I've heard that when you are over-weight there is emotional baggage that is seemingly stored in the fat, tucked away to be forgotten - lost deeper with each bite. When you eat your emotions instead of feelin... Read more
