Why I was misled into overwork in the gym

For those of you who have not been following with my whole transformation saga, the short story is I had kids, stopped paying attention, got fat, whined, prayed, moaned, and finally took action. In taking action, I joined my local gym, and flailed for a few years. I love my gym, but they misled me.


Naomi’s Progress: Living at Maintenance

Not bad, not bad at all! I’m still up a bit, nothing to worry about, especially after celebrating my birthday last weekend by checking out a few new restaurants and then having a bar-hopping date with my husband. My highest weight was 145 lbs last Monday and it’s back […]
