At last week's weigh-in I found myself at my goal weight... I was ecstatic. Accomplishing something is a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

Starting weight: 174.4
Current 7 week goal: 154
Last weigh-in: 164.4
Today's weigh-in: 165.8
Overall change: -8.6
*Entertaining challenge name coming soon to a blog near you... this blog to be exact.
