Re: Ari's Check-In

You guyssss ;.; I'm actually really emotional reading this stuff, sympathy and nudges towards improvements alike. Thank y'all. I feel super supported! (For the fun of it, I am counting this weekend as the starting days just S days hehe.)
Excited for the first N Days of the new effort tomorrow!

Hey guys! I'm going to try to start again Monday. I'm going to include my Coke Zeros as an S and move forward with that.
I thank you guys for your understanding and continued support! I'm going to count No S as another effort toward my anxiety and push that in.
