Yippee! the scales continue to show a loss each day! it may only be ounces but hey, I'll that that! I work at a packaging company so the scales I use each morning do weigh to the ounce. That is a good thing at least it does show progress no matter how small! My food portions are way smaller than what I had been eating just cause I could! I don't really miss anything as far as breads, potatoes, rice! nope don't miss at all and I still fix them for DH. He is a meat and potatos kinda guy. No red meats either for me, fish, chicken and beans. Been eating fruit at least twice aday. now I just need to exercise more! things are looking good!!!!!
