All Things weight-loss: How I lost 25 pounds

If you've been following this blog since its inception, you'd know that I was previously overweight and tried various "I don't know what I was thinking then" methods such as dieting myself into hypoglycaemia and an unhealthy exercise regimen which resulted in me gaining more weight.

Coffee with Ameena #16

If we were having coffee, I'd ask you how your night was and hope it was better than mine because that thing called "menstrual cramps" shortened my sleep at around 3:30am. At 3:30am, while the world was asleep, it all made sense to me why I was irritable and incredibly hungry and craving for the… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #16
