four-seasons-435

Some ladies and I were talking at the gym the other day and the subject of pounds that just won't budge came up. A couple of women said that pretty much out of nowhere they had gained five to 10 pounds and were having a HECK of a time getting them to come off. Of course, whenever a group of women …
