Pumpkin, Hope you can figure out what's going on with the inflammation, that can be tricky stuff.
Maria, Thanks for noticing - yes, it's rewarding coming closer to goal weight. Congrats on your nice 2.6 pound loss, that's nice focus and impressive for your weight/height. I hope to be able to maintain slightly under 146 for a while(to see what it takes). 140 would be nice by summer - you go girl!
