5 phases of weight loss

Everything is a process, there are gradual steps. First we roll over, then we crawl, then we walk and then we run. First we stick our feet in a pool, then we stand in the water, then we stick our face in and then we swim. First we start preschool, then kindergarten, then elementary school, [...]

Weight loss mystery solved

REALITY CHECK....DRINK COFFEE BEFORE READING I was reading a book yesterday that suggested that a preoccupation with dietary restraint and body weight is not synonymous with dieting and a light bulb went off in my head.

Disappointment and Weakness (“What a toxic damn relationship” part 3)
