No weight change this week, but my waist and hips were both down - which I could tell in advance on Friday when some jeans fit really well. So, even without reduced calories, something is working for me. Extra protein? Less carbs? I'm also making it as much of a point as possible to weigh my food rather than measure or count.

A few random observations on my mind.
