-3lbs 389lbs -5lbs since December 8, 2015 Last week, I was busy looking after The Bag Inspector, a.k.a my sister's cat Odin, so couldn't make it to my Weight Watchers meeting for weigh-in. But to be honest, if you had this gorgeous wee man purring all over you, would you want to leave him alone… Continue reading The Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh-In: April 5, 2016
