Posted by chuldowknottingley on 2nd June 2019


Everyone is different, maintaining or achieving your ideal weight is easier for some than others. Some people are naturally leaner than others. However just because someone is “thin” it does not mean they are healthy. As it also in reverse does not mean that if you have a heavier build, it does not mean you […]
