    What nobody tells you about losing weight.... how to say this tactfully. Hmm, well I am eating so much cleaner and healthier now, which just causes an -- we will call it an extreme regularity -- I was not used to when I ate like poop (pun intended). Multiple instances of "regularity" throughout the day. Probably to much info for some, but...hey you asked :smile:

    It's interesting how bowel habits can change so much. There's a lot of effect to all that healthy fiber, too! Some pretty nasty IBS issues I had have almost entirely gone away and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. Your extreme regularity (love that by the way) might steady down after a while, too, once your gut microbiome becomes better at dealing with your healthier food.

    2) How easy it is to put back on the weight and more if you are not attentive, and eating and maintaining the healthy life style changes/choices that helped lose the weight. Also how easy it can be to fall into old habits as the weight is being put back on.

    Oh yes!

    I wish I could get the one cat to just sleep on me. She wants to nurse (drooling copiously) on a fold of my shirt near my armpit, and that's pretty gross-feeling. The other one isn't a lap-cat, but she will get up on the couch cushion or the back of the couch and sleep "near" you. But that's her decision. I can't plop either one down in my lap and have them settle in.

    I have a drooly cat too. I keep a little hand towel handy☺
