Hi Jacky, I'm so excited to be involved again. So sad to hear about your mom's pain.
I'm nearly 30 (not looking forward to my birthday), single, 1 dog, and have been struggling with the same 5 pounds for the past 6 or so months. Hopefully I can get out of the 180s this go round. I'll eat well for a week or so and then binge for a few days. Then I go back to eating well and repeat. It's getting really annoying especially since I do so well working out.
