Malisa: 9/19/17

I have always been on the heavy side but I remember vowing to myself in high school that I would NEVER weigh over 200 pounds…when I got on the scale right before I moved for college, I weighed in at 199. It’s crazy how seeing that number didn’t trigger me to proceed with caution. After […]
