  2. wanted to wrap up the challenge with an awesome success post. Down about 25 lb. been off the bandwagon for about a week and a half. but still lost a few pounds. had Thanksgiving at the in-laws tonight and did an amazing job and not eating too much.

  11. Week 2 Report: Manage calorie intake: less than 1700 Take a moment to realize what I've have done- Helped me feel great. Still a skill I am getting more natural at it.

  12. 9:09 30 days logging calories!!! I have attempted that 5+ times! Feels like beating the First level boss. The whole level has been showing you different skills.
