When a man you admire (for his intelligence, of course!) comes up to you at a business meeting and says to you, “Wow! You are looking great! Have you lost weight?” you almost don’t know whether to kiss him or deck him. I did neither of those, but I did give him a mighty swift head nod and thank him profusely for noticing. (Personally, the only place I really notice I’ve lost weight is in my cups…and you ladies know exactly what I’m talking about)
To date, I’ve lost 19 lbs…but I had those two weeks where I totally fell off the wagon (like that’s really possible – let’s be honest – I gorged and ate like a pig) and gained 4 lbs…now I’m down 5 for the last two weeks. Here, let me calculate that for ya…I’m down a total of 15 pounds. Under a 2 lb a week weight loss, which is not so great. But, like I always say…it’s 15 pounds I never have to carry around on my body again.
Focus…focus…focus. My mantra for the next week. Oh yes…and I’ll be praying a lot too.
