It wasn't the great big blown out like last time. You've done really well - you are starting to get a handle on it.
It reminds me when I was learning the skill of eating out. The first time was a massive defeat, the second time was a little better (gained the same amount...but at least I didn't vomit up the meal because I overate last time!)...and the next time finally nailed it for a zero (gaining nothing/losing nothing
These are learnt skills. The more you practice them - the better you get. You are going the right way.
Great to hear that your husband is catching the bug. A shared journey is an easier journey!
