It was good to hear from you and thanks for the reply! The last few days have been rough for me: cravings, NO energy, brain fuzz, etc. I’ve stayed pretty close on-track, and am trying to keep the slip-ups relatively healthy. I think one of my problems is that I’m not snacking in between meals and then get overly hungry, and also was out a lot over the weekend without my drops. Also would help if I spent more time planning and prepping. On days where I stay on-plan, I lose about 0.6-0.8 lbs/day. If I don’t stay on EXACTLY though, then there’s no loss and maybe a gain, even if I’m staying within 1000 calories. Seems like this is definitely a case of “close” isn’t good enough.

Have out-of-town guests coming to visit (kids with baby) in a couple of weeks and am already wondering how I’m going to manage that! We can’t exactly starve them.

How are you doing? If you’re keeping up with the pound/day, that’s EXCELLENT and congratulations! How
