Real Life

Normally, Estone and I have a strick no posting food rule, but I am going to make an exception. A lot of ladies will attest that once they are married or responsible for preparing meals for their husbands and kids that it would only make sense they too take part in the same meals which creates a challenge when maintaining/loosing weight. I too, at one point had this problem. Estone is a grown man who expects 3 full sized meals a day. One thing i do is prepare a full sized...
