The only times in my life that I am able to loose a lot of weight, are after a bad break up. I drop pounds like you wouldn't believe. I try to keep it off when this happens, but soon I get over my heartache, my regular appetite returns. I joined this race to encourage myself to keep working out and because I  LOVE watching my natural sistas youtube videos. I always feel like they are trying to encourage us to move forward as a community. I look forward to getting to know you all more in these next couple of weeks. Should be fun and hard. Love Carla
