I have a confession: I'm addicted to Real Self. A few nights ago, I had my ipad on my lap, fork in one hand with Cinnabon at my side. And I thought to myself, my gosh, I'm reading blogs about weight loss and look at me devouring this Cinnabon! Then last night it was a full glass of ice-cream,... READ MORE

Here is my story that has led me to this point in my life: I feel like I have been "bigged boned" most of my teenage-adult life. In Highschool I weighed between 130-150.
