way to go Mandy-- that's where all my weight is....around my lower back and hips...yuk! Anyway, after a horrendous week of visitors and restaurant food and the worst, ME cooking for friends, with the left overs, I still weighed in at 133.4. So I think by the end of the week I can get back to 132 which is where I want to be for awhile until the old bod decides on 131. One at a time, I say! Yes, welcome new members... be sure to go to the 5-15 lb forum...this is the weekly weigh-in, which i love! I really makes me want to reach a goal instead of just blowing it off for a few more days, read few more lbs. Have a super week! I am visiting my sis in San Diego and we will be doing the restaurant thing! I wish they wouldn't put bread (and butter) on the table!!!
