Only thing that ever worked

An eating program called Whole30. I lose weight, and I lose it fast. Trouble is I can never stay on it long enough, and I need way more than 30 days. I'm starting a Whole365 on 8/8/2017.

So, I'm up 2.6 pounds this morning. I'm carrying extra water weight for sure because my fingers feel fat when I make a fist. It's my own darn fault. I was so far under my daily calorie allotment after dinner, I decided that a chocolatey dessert wouldn't go amiss.

Morning 90-Minutes for Me
