AM Weight: 157 PM Weight: 157 Happy leap year day! Sooooo! It’s hard to write everything daily, in my house. This weekend was a small plateau which I find is probably healthier than losing a lb every day. Between church and catching up on household chores and making meals for everyone and then myself and… Continue reading Days 10-12: Weekends Are Busy
