Quick update -
I've lost 15 pounds. I'd love to have 20 gone by now, and I thought I might with the cold I had, as I wasn't eating much. But I think I didn't lose more because I wasn't fueling my body.
Anyway, 15 pounds in 8 weeks is good, and I am happy about it.
I also have lost 3 inches in my hip area and 3 1/2 inches in the waist.
I'm smiling today!
