The scale finally moved in the right direction....in a big way....all of a sudden down 3 pounds.....223. It was not nice seeing it go up.

Patience, patience. it is nice to know the scale is finally reflecting my hard work and decication the past week and a half. I am still feeling great about how I feeling and managing food and how I feel physically. Hopefully I can still reach my mini goal of 221 soon.
