I have continue to count calories and stay focused. I have splurged some but I do keep going and trying and SOMEHOW my scale is down 155.4. I one pound from hitting 20 lbs and 11 pounds from my actual goal. This week / month / year has been pretty stressful and progressively getting worse. So I do have a dream. I love writing. I’d LOVE to write for my career and maybe I will have the opportunity when I am laid off soon. I have a strategy in the event this happens.
