Last night, I was up very, very late. I ate really poorly all day yesterday, as I have for the
past few months. I had been grazing all day! Every few weeks or so, I have a massive binge. Even
though I know right from wrong, my mind and body fall subject to it's unrelenting desires. So, I

XOXO Diet Diva!
