My Weight Loss Was My Worth

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have seen me post this week regarding a memory that came up from five years ago. A time when I felt like I was at the peak of my success. The FB memory that came up was a video clip of me on a big […]

The Emotional Side to Emotional Eating
