After finally reaching goal in December, I continued with my ST program and clean eating roughly 85% of the time. I hovered around 150-151, which is where my Dr said was my ideal weight based on my muscle tone, height, etc. Then we went ... Read more

For the past 7-10 days I've been struggling with my goals. I mentioned before that hitting a normal BMI made me complacent. I found myself in my old pattern of "I've reached a goal I didn't think I could, so now I can relax a bit." As in the ... Read more
