Am I afraid of success? Am I afraid to fail? I keep visualizing myself in the body I believe I should have. It's not pencil/model thin. It's me, but without the belly. It's me breathing easier. It's me stronger. It's me with crazy a... Read more

I know the drill. Why do I want to lose weight? Look better. Feel better. Be healthier. Live longer and in good health while I'm living. Then there are the personal reasons. Wear an old sexy dress again. Be noticed for being th... Read more
