I did it - I made it to my first 5lb goal.:-) 5.5lbs in total, to be exact.
And you know what? I actually feel lighter. I'm sure that's not possible, seeing as I still have a ways to go - but maybe it's really about the proverbial "weight" coming off my shoulders.
I'm more than half way to my first 10lb goal. Next week, I want to be 75% of the way there.;-)
