Well, I lost one pound last week. It seemed a little anti-climatic after all the planning and work I put into it. Somehow it seemed such a small result for so much effort but I do really feel better physically.
Then I went to the freezer and took out a pound of butter (yes it is frozen!) and when you look at it in that context, it really is something so I'm happy. Cheerios for breakfast and now I'm going to pick up some groceries before the girls come.
