Tuesday, November 10, 2009      21 comments

Well friends, most of you know from my “status” that this past weekend was a clothes-shopping spree. Prior to losing weight there was no “spree” involved in shopping. You either went to Casual Male or ordered through King Sized catalog; the 2 la... Read more
