The Bootcamp challenge doesn't require you to measure but I do so when I started back on SP 2 weeks ago. I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks, and tomorrow will be the first time doing so, so I'm a little nervous. I hope that all my hard work has paid off. I'm looking towards those non-scale victories this time around because the scale is not always my friend, even when I am doing well.
Good luck with your daughter's birthday party! I've been planning since October because I wanted to make it a big one. We don't do big parties every year, but this one I wanted to make extra special for her. :)
