And this would be why measurements are such a big tool for this journey! So glad you had an eye opener - Even though it was after the binge, it's a good thing for you to see that change. Sure, you binged, but that doesn't have to throw you off completely!
Three pounds in a month? Seems slow, I'm sure, but hey - Think of it like this: That's twelve
