What is fear?

What is fear?

A couple of months ago I posted on my fatty forums about needing help with going to the gym with my schedule. I got a resounding, “If it’s important enough to you, you’ll find a way.” That couldn’t be more true. A part of me was afraid of going back to the gym. Afraid of … Continue reading

It’s too easy to get lost in … Continue reading
