Remember: Always Read the Labels

Fat Fridays: Is Sugar Sweet or Toxic? 09.04.2021

Before: I remember adding 3 large spoonful’s of sugar to any hot drink I had made. Stirring it and smiling in greedy delight to accept the sweetness I was about to deliver to myself.

Before I hid my body away beneath layers of black clothing, oversized black clothing to be detailed. As I avoided looking in mirrors, I never really knew how stupid I looked. I mean, being a fatty and trying to hide in black is nonsensical. I was there walking around looking like a black hole. IContinue reading “Fat Fridays: Fear of Change? 02.04.2021”

Fat Fridays: Portion Control – 12.03.2021

Weekend Workout – 06.03.2021

#WeekendWorkout I woke up this morning and went for a power-walk/light jog. It took me a few hours to peel myself up out of bed and push myself to get out of my front door.
