I think this makes try # 9057834902573482758294 in my quest to lose weight. I started the month off great, but after a few days started to slip. Sometimes it's just easier to not care and slip into a funk. Then all other areas of my life start t... Read more

I have been thinking a lot about this the past few weeks and I am not sure I can really put my finger on it. I mean, I really think it is an equal mixture of your typical emotional eating--- anxiety, boredom, happiness, sadness, anger, frustrati... Read more
