I was struggling for a blog post today... I have several things in my drafts that I've been working on/praying through, but nothing was coming together. Then today, as I scrolled through my facebook memories, this post from two years ago today caught my eye... This was 18 months post diagnosis, 180 pounds lost, and… Continue reading FREE!
