So, I have a bit of a vent that I need to get off my chest because it has been frustrating me for weeks now and I thought this would be the best place to share. My poor boyfriend is so sick of hearing me b!tch and I am too polite to say it to the face of the person in question.
I have a collegue/friend who is the typical “chase the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” dieter. You know the type – tries new diet craze, finds it too restrictive and feels too deprive, strays off plan
