Glad to see you didn't fall off the wagon even after the setback. I've been successful so far with DB4s and DB10s, so I'm sticking with DB until I reach my Life Goal Weight. Which btw I lowered to 190 from 200. We will see when I get closer to the goal (just like you). God Bless and Keep up the Good work!!!

You've got it in you to be great! I can see it.Have you tried 5:2 or alternate day fasting? I've found that it has really killed the cravings that have dominated my life for decades.
