Still batting 1.000 on Tuesday!
I'm super happy, my body is adjusting the lowered amount of calories really well. The gradual stepdown is working well, and it has really helped me to fight my nemesis of the evening snackies. I am getting better at reminding myself that I'm no... Read more

I can do this and one imperfect day doesn't negate a week and a half of progress. Last week ... Read more
