Binging with Purpose
Friday, September 20, 2013      1 comments

I was recently posting a comment on someone else's blog and I wrote, "Don't let the food control you. You can control the food." Then I stopped and actually looked at what I just wrote. I had no choice but to think to myself, "Take your own advi... Read more
