Plus I was seldom hungry. Except for the joy of being hungry and planning my next meal. Not top loading calories, on a full stomach. Who knew I could change old habits. Or stop mindless grazing?
It can happen for you too.
Join me, as I Journey to SlimLand. It is possible, even for you. If I can do this, and I never thougth I could... then YOU CAN TOO!

I will overhaul my page and update as I progress.
