I'm going to visit my vaccinated mom and immune suppressed dad across the country. Not sure if I'll fly, or if I'll take a road trip to see some sites on the way. Oh, and hopefully roller derby will be coming back so I can socialize and hit people again. :)
There's a lot more involved in a weight than fat. There can be variances from water retention, inflammation, etc. Also, if you under eat (1kg/wk is pretty aggressive already) you may lose muscle which will cause your metabolism to lower as well. You still need to support your lean mass with the applicable macros too.
I use both! I also like to use the incline training ones where you have to go up and down the hills. It can help with boredom as well as challenging your body a little different here and there.

If it worked so well, you wouldn't be "restarting." MLMs are created to take advantage of people. Why else would they choose to use the model that results in 99% of their consultants losing money? The fact that *anyone* can join and become a pseudo expert on health and fitness is a huge red flag.
What do YOU want it for? The new Ionic will have built in GPS, as does the Surge. The ionic can even be used for swimming. :) My husband loves his Charge 2 HR, he's a pretty big runner, but not interested in mapped runs. I currently wear the Blaze, but I love statistics, graphs, and numbers.
