Reginald hates who he is: a chubby, awkward kid from a fractured English home. So he escapes through music, and reinvents himself as Elton John.

I love my local Buy Nothing group. When my husband's dear grandma passed this group helped us get a clown costume. She made him promise many years ago to dress like a clown during her funeral. This group came through with a wig and costume. 😃

I thought there was sugar withdrawal. Like the Keto flu is a withdrawal of simple carbohydrates aka sugar. He said the fear of withdrawals from his pills popping days is what keeps him sober.. That's not a solid recovery. If withdrawals would have been the answer for me, it wouldn't have taken 15 years of hell to stop drinking.

FTR.....10pm-6am is not Intermittent Fasting. 6pm-12pm everyday is my IF schedule, but the typical setups are as follows....First number is fasting window, second is eating.... 16-8, 18-6, or the Warrior is 20-4 I think she moved on from the idea that 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. is fasting, (like, oh you don't eat when you're sleeping.. kudos), but I wanted to make it clear for anyone who was actually curious.
