As of today, I've lost 8lbs! Wahoo! I'm loving this calorie counting much better than Weight Watchers, though I give WW credit for teaching me things like choosing healthier, more filling foods, and how to control my portion sizes.
Mostly, right now, I'm just enjoying this little success, this proof that all the work of planning my meals and counting the calories and dragging myself to the gym and the tired, sore muscles these last two weeks have been totally worth it. And, I'm half-way to reaching my first mini-goal! Oh, to just be obese instead of morbidly so LOL!
