Sweating for the Wedding Update

I haven’t done a weight loss update in a while, mostly because I’ve been riding on the struggle bus since the beginning of the year. I have lost (and found) the same 5 lbs about 6 times since 2018 began. I’m on the “lost” end of the spectrum this week which is FABULOUS. Three weeks […]
