    Down to 199 (just fell under 200!

    ) from ~215 a month or two ago. Doesn't seem like a lot but the way I was eating, it's a miracle I've got through this. I still want to lose about twenty pounds and I'm hoping my face slims down a bit.. Baby steps though, I'm getting there.

    YES! I'm down 20 pounds.

    Gotta keep this going... more water, less soda. Smaller meal portions and keeping active :) The goal is to lose 30 more pounds. I would like to keep going from there, but I don't want to overwhelm myself. Baby steps... :)
