I can't say that I've been slacking...but I definitely haven't been going at things 100%. I haven't been tracking my foods and I haven't been exercising. I have been watching what I'm eating and I am losing. Now if I could only coordinate... Read more

I don't think my eating habits today are what they had in mind when referring to "calorie cycling". I definitely ate more calories that I was supposed to...but I was good all week. I really shouldn't try to justify throwing things right ... Read more
