I reached 30 pounds lost this morning. I wasn't expecting a large loss at all and when I got on the scale boom! there is was. I can't believe I have already lost 30 pounds. It seems like such a big number until I think that I still have 45 to go to get to the minimum amount I want to lose. I am not getting discouraged. I am thrilled with 4 pounds a week. I am going to check with my nutritionist because it seems like 4 a week is high but so far they don't seem concerned. Alright short and sweet today.
