#Cinchspiration: Six Months In, I’m a Changed Woman

Life sucks when you’ve given up. But I thought I’d be addicted to sugar and fast food for the rest of my life, and I’d resolved myself to being obese. I thought I just didn’t have the energy to eat healthier foods or exercise regularly. So I decided that I’d wrap my body, 80 pounds… Continue reading #Cinchspiration: Six Months In, I’m a Changed Woman

#Cinchspiration Update: Approaching 200

For most people, my headline would be a bad thing. Because who wants to weigh 200 pounds, right?

And I definitely don’t want to admit that to myself, nor do I want to admit it to the entire Internet. But alas,… Continue reading My #Cinchspiration Begins…
