For the past 4 years I've eaten extremely healthy. I've been within 5 pounds of 116 since May 2009. Prior to that my weight was up and down, but I was pretty much "normal" sized most of my life. About 12 years ago I was in a very "difficult" relationship with an alcoholic, and I … Continue reading Week One, Day Four (and some personal history)
