Can it be true? Can it!? According to my scales, this morning, (just after getting up mind you) I've lost 5 lbs. I'm now down to 135. I haven't seen 135 in a while. I'm so excited. It's been 18 days since I started my weight loss journey. In 18 days, I've lost 5 lbs. I absolutely can't wait for another 18 days and 5 lb. weight loss. I will treat myself to something nice once I reach my first goal of 10 lbs lost. Oh! Below is my counter, I'm going to start posting it with every post.
