    Thanks for the info on spoiler! When I was still working I'd tell people that I had to learn one new thing everyday. And then I could go home. I've learned something today, but I'm retired. So where do I go?? 😆

    @kyungs Good illustration...I couldn't figure out how to show by example without it going into spoiler mode, lol. Never thought of adding the periods.

    Lol so glad someone could it explain it 😅

    Now for the sorta new thing for this day:
    The symbols above the box we type messages in has a B for bold and then an I for italics...you just highlight the text you want to use it on and press the symbol and the formatting is generated for you.

    The next symbol looks like a backwards PI to me with a little down arrow beside it. If you click that one, 'Spoiler' is an option!!!
    Your welcome 😆 🤣 😂

    Love all the technical details, @AnnPT77

    Most of it doesn't make too much sense to me, but it's fascinating. Keep sharing.

    1st Question. What should I eat that will be low calorie but high volume right now? I’m absolutely ravenous, but have less than 100 calories left, know I will go over but don’t want to go too far, I’ve had eggs and chicken kokoro today

    Wow, what a welcome. Such helpful information. I will treasure it. I chose the non starchy veg, and a tiny portion of my homemade low sugar apple cake. And I don’t mind going over a bit. I’m fledging a young one next week, off to Uni, so had to do physical shopping today and it wiped me out. If I’m still hungry in a while, might have a bowl of porridge, punk rocker me!

    @ridiculous59 - what beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing 😘

    @sandramarshall200 - when I am hungry and not much calories left, I find what fills me up is an apple (dried apple slices especially as take longer to eat), baby carrots, beef jerky + I drink some more water!
    I also try to have low-calorie veggie soup on hand (make a big batch periodically and freeze portions) to supplement with on those days which I can eat as is or dress up with some chicken or something and use as a meal potentially too if enough wiggle room.

    The other thing is to go to bed lol.
