Traveled lately? Ever heard this message… “ In the event of a change in cabin pressure, panels above your head will open revealing oxygen masks. Pull the mask down towards you to activate the flow of oxygen… Cover your nose and mouth with the mask… Remember to secure your own mask before assisting others”. We’ve all heard it before.

Here’s an easy way to tell how you’re doing without the scale and without the body … Continue reading Scale got you Down?
