Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.” —Gabourey Sidibe

One pinner said: "After I had a baby and my husband was deployed - I obviously had ZERO time to go to the gym. I lost 65 pounds by the time he came home - THIS was my arm workout every day. And ooooooh boy did it work. 10 sets of 10 every day & each of my arms has lost 7 inches since giving birth. Proof you don't need a lot of time or money or equipment to change the way you look."

Brain fog--I don't think the docs can even understand what we are going through. I tried to get a glass of water from the fridge, but it wouldn't come out.
