    A disappointing 6.1 a bit of ongoing stress might help to explain it I suppose.

    A ghastly 6.1 from Stabbo after a Super Salmon (with crispy skin) OMAD. Can't disguise the fact LC doesn't deal with any minor ailments well and is devoid of comfort food. I do weigh 73 kgs and bought a new car yesterday. Hugs for stress @DJC3 - chicken soup for the soul?
