I weighed myself on July 1 and recorded a one-pound loss; today's weight is the same (Monday is my usual weigh-in day). So one more pound this week is gone, and I'm more than halfway to goal. At the halfway point of the year, I'm very happy with my progress so far.
No time to write more – we still have guests, the computer is in the guest-wing side of the house and I'm trying to prepare a feast for later today. Hope you U.S. readers are enjoying a beautiful long weekend!
