Hi! I'm tired of getting winded walking up the stairs or breaking out in a sweat doing the simplest tasks. I believe my weight is at an all-time high for me... and I seriously feel like I'm pushing maximum density. I need to do something NOW about my weight!

I went to town with my exercise today... trying to make up for the days that I sat on my ass.

How wrong is it to be sitting here, updating my account, with a spoon and an open container of Breyer's?  I so badly want to just let it melt, but for some reason, my brain won't let me.  ;)
