Back again FS. I'm a 58 year old Mother of five and Grandmother of one. It's an exciting and scary time for me. I've split with my spouse of 35 years and have moved to a new city to be closer to my grandson, who just turned one. I had never lived by myself before: home to college dorm to home to marriage. It's been a year and I'm proud to say I'm doing ok...except for the weight. I am back to FS to help with support because the people here are the best and maybe reconnect with some friends. After all, I started here many years ago. Let's get this done together!

You sound very focused. That's great. I think if you write about your progress in your journal instead of the forum you may get more replies and support.. just a thought. Good luck to you.

Sync iphone and Website data
I have had this issue as well. Syncing the website is easy, just hit refresh. To update the app, I have to add a food, any food to it, then it wii sync with the web and add what is missing. Then I just go back and delete the made up food, or if the food you added you actually ate, even better. You are good to go. I try to use the app to add foods then refresh the website. Less complicated.

Apple Cider Vinegar
I have started putting a tablespoon of Bragg' s organic acv (apparently the brand is important), in 32 ounces of bottled water and drinking it as a tonic. The taste isn't bad and it ensures I drink water. It's only been two days so I'll have to get back to you on how it is for weight loss, but it's easy to so and safe so why not?

How to curb late night eating?
Since I gave up sugar I don't really get that hungry after dinner. To make sure, I brush and floss. No way I'm going to do that twice in one night!
