Well today I weighed and I am down 7.5 pounds... I feel a bit better, but still really need to lose the other ten, but I'll take it. I have been eating a lot of fruit (grapes, melon and pineapple) this week and snacking on pretzels for my salt fix. For dinner I'm eating whatever we have.. chili, burger, pork chops, etc., the only difference being I'm not going back for seconds and trying to be reasonable on the first serving. So.. 7.5 pounds is a start. How are you doing?
