  • I think "hide" was not a good word. Rather, just out of the way...since I am not tempted...no need to hide...thanks for the correction :)
  • Congratulations @hayer1 It is a feat to maintain your goal weight. Yes, this last year has been a challenge for many!!

  • Hi Adriana, you are still young and you will lose the weight in a reasonable time. Cut out the sugar, and dial back the carbs. Our bodies are so used to carbs for energy. I used to be strictly keto, but now enjoy toast with my eggs etc., and I walk everyday...trying for 5 miles a day in a challenge. The processed sugar is…

  • You have worked SOOOO Hard, Kathy...you deserve that 17.4% body fat that you worked soooo hard to lose! I am coming along quite nicely.
