So--as I wait to find out if I will get to be on "The Biggest Loser" I have joined an accountability group that will let me weigh in and be responsible for what I eat. I weighed in this morning and found that I was down to 256 pounds, with is a total of 7 from where I was at the beginning of the year, and 4 from last Sunday. The problem is, I'm keenly aware that I haven't eaten remotely normally this week because of being sick, so the liklihood is that once I am feeling better, and able to eat again, those pounds will come right back on. I hope not, but we will have to wait and see.
As for now, I'm at 5'2" and 256 pounds. My goal is to get down to 135 pounds...so this will likely be a LONG journey.
