The Struggle Is Real

Sometimes we feel like frauds running a weight loss and fitness blog when we are fat and unfit. We worry that if we post about struggling or feeling out of control then people won’t want to read what we have to say, so we’ve avoided writing posts that make us sound like we’ve lost focus….
