I've lost 8.6 pounds. I still haven't reached my first mini-goal of losing 10 pounds, but I'm staying positive. I've lost and kept the 8.6 pounds off for awhile so at least it's probably not water weight.
Anyway, here are my first 3 mini-goals:
263 - First 10 pounds gone
253 - Second 10 pounds gone
245.7 - 10% of body weight gone
I'll just try for those for now and of course make up more mini-goals later.
