Well, this is the best news I've had all day.
I've "released" three pounds! And over the holiday and a trip to boot!
I think what made the biggest difference was I seriously upped my raw veggie intake. I can usually tell that I lose, um, release weight better when I eat more raw veggies.
Wohoo! Now, let's see if I can keep it off for next week. I'll probably be buying a Gazelle (the exercise machine, not the animal, silly!) in the next few days.
