I’m a loser too!

Yes, it’s true. I am a loser. In a really good way though! Since shortly after Christmas I have begun really working at the weight loss, and so far, I have lost 8 pounds! I am pretty proud of myself as I am doing the “solo weight-watchers” method. In other words, I am too cheap […]
