Discovery of the day: Milestones rock!
Hooray -- today I broke the 10 lb mark! Not bad, for not quite 2 month's work. And other than cutting the heck out of my thumb last night, it hasn't been too painful.
(I did learn not to cut lettuce when I'm tired. Or at least to keep better track of my digits in the process.)
As if that wasn't enough good news, my boyfriend reports he's dropped 8 lbs simply by association. That's a really good thing as he just got a less-than-stellar report card from his doctor. Nothing scary bad, but enough to make him take statins for three months to see if he can get his cholesterol down. Yep, I think he'll be eating a little closer to my plan, at least in the short term.
