Re: automated eating tracker

Pinkie - we had so much fun last night skating! It was really great; remembering it makes me smile. Jen - YES!

Have fun with your guests at the cabin! You guys sure spend a lot of time there. It sounds heavenly, although I get it that with visitors it won't be as relaxing!

I also know plenty of thin people eat diets that don't feed their gut biome well or promote a long health span. 100% agree. And the foods that we eat don't make everyone fat.
