Just being curious and nosy...
How many of you have done different rounds where you did/did not use lotions and makeup in different rounds? Have you seen a difference?
My one and only "cheat" is that I'm not willing to give up my lotions and makeup. In my profession (RN), my hands are always horribly dry (sometimes to the point of cracking) from being washed 100 times a day.
And I'm just too vain to give up my makeup- hey, I can admit it. LOL.
So even if I'm not losing as well as I would have, it's not something I'm willing to do. Just being curious about your results though! :-)
