Found the challenge, Ubee. I posted my starting stats as of Friday -- that's my "official" weigh in day in terms of weight that I record on my measurements record. I've had a good start because yesterday morning I woke up and had gained back 7 of the 9 pounds I'd just lost and then started a whoosh of epic proportions. Lost 4.8 pounds yesterday and overnight. All water, of course, but at least it's not showing up on my scale.
The pep talk helped a lot -- especially about doing this to myself and not wanting to end up in a wheelchair.
Fi, I'm going to check out swap-bot. The miracle of the Internet strikes again!
