maplesyrupmama's Blog > Cycle 2

Posted 13 May 2015

So, it's been about 2 years since I last blogged here. Unfortunately, I am back again! Earlier this year (January/February) I started breaking out again with cystic acne. I really don't know what caused it, but I had recently switched from eating Special K every morning to oatmeal - hoping that oatmeal would help keep me fuller as I was trying to lose som...

I did actually wake up with a teeny tiny whitehead this morning, but it was so small, not even worth mentioning, really.
