Re: Alene's Check-in

Sounds like you and I have similar plans for our forced isolations!

I hope your co-worker is fine, and that you and she both have robust immune systems that will tidily handle the virus if you are exposed. I know it can be stressful but I know you will handle it with your wonderful grace.

Re: Sammy's Daily Check In

Happy Saturday! I weigh almost every morning first thing when I get up. My scale is connected to my phone and the app records the new weight each day (Renpho scale). It's sort of an automatic habit, generally nothing emotional attached to it. More recently I feel like my weight mirrored my emotional...

Re: Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

I have tried to develop a taste for 90% dark chocolate. I actually quite enjoy a square or two from time to time now. My trick is that I eat it with my coffee (which has cream in it). Voila! The cream cuts the bitter of the chocolate and it's a delicious dessert.

Hugs, Sammy. I have recently learned a lot more about the havoc that mental health medications can wreak on our metabolisms. That must be so frustrating for you.

Welcome back, and here's to a great week.
