But reality set in and I had to realize that without the effort of eating right, I could have gained 3lbs instead of losing them. <BR> <BR> I'm excited! and I'm looking forward to another hard week of watching what I eat.

Well it was the saddest day in along time for me. To work hard and do everything to drop the pound is hard and pain me to have to start over.
