A Weight Loss Update: The Journey is REAL

One of my goals for 2017 is to share more about weight loss here on the blog. That is, after all, one of the reasons this blog even came to be. I have learned a lot over the course of loosing 80 pounds and maintaining it & I want to do a better job of sharing it.
