Diet Watch

I went to the doctor yesterday for my monthly checkup and weigh-in; I lost 8 pounds over the last month, which makes 34 pounds total since I started my diet three months ago. It might have been more than 8 pounds, but I was sick for a week a couple of weeks ago, and wasn't able to go for my daily walk for a couple of days; and when I started walking again, it took me a few days to build up to where I'd been. But I'm not complaining; 8 pounds is just spiffy.

34 pounds. My 14-month-old daughter weighs half that, and I really don't see how I could carry that much around with me and not notice. I certainly don't feel that much lighter on my feet.

But I've still got a long way to go.
