Grace and Losing Weight

September 27, 2014 I was in a failing battle to lose weight for many years. I’d take one step forward and ten steps backward. I just couldn’t figure out how to lose weight and keep it off. I’d start a weight loss program and then overeat and give up for days or weeks or months […]
