0.1 pound gain: Biggest Loser Blog Edition

I am normally a rational person, but…

Here I am, planning on working here at home today, and the only thing I can think of is that I’m locked in this house without a Diet Coke. I am normally a rational person, but when it comes to Diet Coke, there’s no rational thought involved. I know people who drink diet sodas gain […]
