Letter to Lack of Simplicity

I think we started out with the right intentions, but I gotta tell you that things have gotten pretty screwed up. It seems like people live for what seems to be and not for what is right now.

Women spend hours looking at the internet and pinning things that they never plan on making or doing or that glorify the thigh gap, which is very un-mermaidlike IMHO.

Wrapping It Up

Okay, week four is over. Good news:I have lost pounds and 8 inches.  Bad news: I still have more to lose !

So next month is still up in the air? What RealToLife experience do you want to hear about? I'm always open for suggestions.
