My yes moment!
At last, this week I lost two pounds.
BUT, I never adjusted my weight tracker up, so when I adjusted it to 188 today, it was actually adjusting it up, because I failed to adjust it up to 190 from 183. No worries. It really is a loss.

Power of sleep
Yesterday I mentioned I went out and pulled a few weeds, etc. in my little yard.
Yes, I was exhausted afterward.
In fact, I can't believe how tired I was.
