This whole time of life is not lovely. I'm referring to the time that hits after those childbearing years are over. Yep, Again TOM isn't here and its 5 days past. Sometimes he comes every 15 days for months and just when you adjust to that then bam! he waits 36 to 40 days. This effects my ability to lose weight in a huge way. Needless to say I'm frustrated but I am not giving in! I will lose this battle one .25 pound at a time. It will not beat me!
