  1. Week 4 - feels like it has been longer. Time flies when you are making great life changes!

    Hello everyone,

    I hope everyone's journey is going well. So far so good on mine. I started general foods yesterday and it's been pretty exciting. It feels good to cook again. During my soft food phase I literally cooked eggs or fish and not very often lol.

    With my switch over to general foods I was able to get in 540 calories today. That is more ...
