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).

Hi Friends!!!

I read blogs almost every day, but never make time to write my own. I'll get overwhelmed if I try to write too much, so I'll just say that I'm glad its 2015.
