dallasapollo replied to alfonso24's question:

30 min breakfast... after waking up or after getting up?

I am right there with you. I can't imagine doing without those 30 minutes of drifting awake. When I force myself out of bed, I take 30 minutes to wake up, but I do it while knocking things over an...

Not eating enough?

As I sit here on day 30 of my first month, eating my umptillianth bowl of chicken breast and black beans, I wonder yet again why it is I'm only losing about a pound a week when everyone else is ha...

As I was reading that, I kind of suspected he's not giving up the wine because he loves it too much. That's been my rationale, too.

dallasapollo replied to yuriythebest's question:
