I havent checked in for a while. I really want to keep a record here for my own reflection. I weighed in today at 177.5. This is a total loss of 12 pounds. I am feeling good about it and it feels as though I have made some positive changes so far. While I have had ups and downs and wavering commitment levels, I feel as though I have made some positive changes in my eating. I have made better choices even at the times when I felt like it didnt matter. I pray that these changes stick for a lifetime and continue to bring about more lasting change.
