Hey everyone!!! I got one the scales again today and discovered that I have lost, since beginning this weightloss journey, A WHOLE STONE!!!

There have been some ups and downs, trials and errors (e.g. discovering that I am NOT a gym bunny.I like running and I like swimming - I do not like lots of sweaty people all in a mirrored room doing some kind of weird mating ritual/alpha male or female thing)

The worst and hardest part is not restricting myself - it is the plateau. I have repeatedly come extremely close to giving up, but hung on by the skin of my teeth.

Hopefully that glass of wine I had to celebrate doesn't muck it all up! (JOKE - I had half a glass. LOLOL!!)
