Today is the official end of the first week on the new diet and I’m happy to report that not only have I seen the whole week through BUT ALSO I have lost 5lbs!!!! This is in spite of the beer, quasi normal hamburger (grilled at bro’s for preemptive 4th of July get together), and possible bite (or six) of this ice cream sandwich thing with….ahem, dessert. 5 pounds!!!! This puts me at 212.6 as of today. Possibly the least I have weighed since Bean was born. I am ecstatic!
