Technology for Weight Loss - Does it really work?

To say 2020 has been a journey would be an understatement. I could talk about worldwide pandemics, global shutdowns, and economic uncertainty, but to be honest I think we’re all a little bit sick of it. Instead, I thought I’d share with a bit of personal journey I have been on, one which all started with regular business networking, a photo that even shocked me and a visit to the doctors.

Knock it down once, and it comes back with a vengeance. Like, if I respond to, say, three emails, after a short period of time, you can bet there’ll be four new emails (or more) for me to read and send replies to.
