Once upon a time, when I was a pudgy, cuddly little girl, my brother announced: "Kelly doesn't eat to live, she lives to eat." He was making fun of me but I agreed, and I still identify with that rule, but here's the problem—I don't know if I want to be someone who lives to eat anymore.

Normally it comes in tubs with neon labels and a list of gibberish ingredients meant to turn you into a lifting machine for an hour. Intense right? Well, it isn't as intense as it sounds!
A lot of my friends have been asking for my advice in losing weight. That's normally the goal for 20-something year old women: I want to lose weight. Specifically in the belly.
