The WeightScale that stole my happy days

I guess it would be wise to take my health seriously this year. I mean, after all, I’m only going to get one chance to live my life using this one body, so I might as well take care of it.

My main problem is… I love to chew. I love food, I love everything about it. I love the smell of food, the taste, the texture. I love to hold it, to look at it. Now if I can only figure out a way to eat it and not show the evidence of what I’ve been eating in the form of fat…
