Ch 2, Day 78
It's been two days, since the the "big shovel" where I lost 2.5# literally overnight. This morning, the scale is holding at 1.5# of loss....maybe this is the real deal. I think it is. I just need to hold on until this weekend's official weigh... Read more

Ch 2, Day 69
Dealing with the remorse from yesterday's evening snacking and exceeding my total calories for the day, I made a decision that my evil twin must be dealt with. While I don't usually make excuses for her, I don't discipline her enough either.
