    [ ] Lose 7lbs from your start date!

    - starting on July 5= 135 pounds (I realized today this actually my July 5 weight not my July 13 weight)
    - July 15 = 131 pounds
    - July 21 = 130.5 pounds

    I was actually pleasantly surprised to see the half pound dip today. My weight had actually gone UP mid-week by a couple of pounds, I think due in part to my new workout routine (adding running/jogging/walking to the mix). I like what running does for my body but I hate actually doing it!
