I expected horrible results to go along with the party filled week I had. I was WRONG!!! I can't tell you how excited I was to step on the scale this morning (with gritted teeth) and see a 3 pound loss! Yes-- three! That brought me down to my first 5% goal and a total of 11.4 lbs lost! I rewarded myself with 2 bites of the ice cream cake left over from my nephew's birthday last night. I knew I was wighing in today so I avoided it while everyone else dug in. I'm off to yet another BBQ to celebrate Independence Day! Happy 4th of July and God Bless our armed forces!
