I think if I tried to summarize this blog 5 words it would probably be "Sarah Struggles to Lose Weight." I'm frankly kind of embarrassed that is what the sum of my thoughts have centered upon.

One of my compromises with myself when I started this blog (in deference to my last one) was to be completely honest. You get the good and the bad, the ups and downs, the wins and the losses.
