It's amazing the difference a week can make.
Last week, I was feeling somewhat defeated...set an unrealistic goal for myself, and backtracked a bit.
This week, I get sick - and may possibly have gotten the jump start that I have been waiting for, for the last few weeks.
I originally wanted to be down an additional 15 pounds by my birthday...35 total, since November 1. Then decided that was too much, since I gained a few back over Xmas/NYE...well, I have since lost the few I gained, and an additional 6.5 pounds.
Total, since November 1, I am down 23.5...I think it is feasible that I could lose another 11.5 by my birthday (27 days).
