Linda's Healthy Choices

I saw a photo of me on stage in May and I looked like a beached up whale. I have gone from 115 to 180 lbs. None of my clothes fit. I needed help and went to a weight loss clinic. By tracking every calorie and carb I have lost 22 pounds. I don't like to cook, but I love to eat.
