Oops a couple of weeks later...
I guess I lost track of time. Actually I had some mess up days and have stopped weighing myself. I just don't want to know right now. I am back on track and will maybe -perhaps - possibly weigh myself tomorrow.

Hey! I ate a lot, and worked really hard for the past four days - how about you?! It was a blurry whirl wind of family, visitors, cooking, cleaning and yes...eating. I probably didn't do that well. I KNOW I ate many things I shouldn't have, but... Read more
