LYNNABEL's CalorieKing Blog

In childhood and high school I was always a healthy weight. After graduating from college, my weight fluctuated (mostly in the up-direction). I got to an all time high of 158 in 2000, and joined weight watchers (the in-home version - I've always been private about my weight) and lost about 28 pounds.
