    Did pretty well through out holidays, even my cheat days were reasonable, but there have been far too many carb bites. We're going full keto for the month, as opposed to just low carb and hopefully will rev up the results. Part of this is going to have to be cutting out the alcohol. My dad and I ... Read more

    Yes it is a wide open topic on purpose. Write about 300 words-or less. No other ideas than that. Maybe our group should have brain stormed awhile first! I suppose I could put boundaries up myself. Oh, I know, I do that by brainstorming on paper. "dreams" goes in the middle ... Read more

    It's been years. My body has changed in so many ways, both for the better and the worse.
