I am thinking about weighing in Monday. I usually don't weigh in this soon after first starting a diet. If I weigh in to soon I usually get discouraged really easily. But if I do weigh in I hope to have lost a dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

If I weigh in Monday I will come back and let everyone know exactly what I lost.

I've dropped a tire so far hehehe (20)
But I'd really like to be down to the size of an average male in the next little while. (187)

When I started this journey, I weighed more than my Fiance. Now he weighs more than I did when I started. (Which is also bad, but at least he's supportive)

I'd like to lose a small bale of hay total by the end of the year. (50)
