So close

I seem to get right up to a milestone and then I just can't seem to get over that point. Today I walked right up to the 79 pound mark and really wanted to hit the 80 pound mark. But I still can't believe that I have lost 79 pounds in 10 months. I had stalled a bit lately but realized that I was not writing down my points or what I was eating. So, last week I made a resolve to be more diligent and that led to a 3 pound loss this week.

I think I have a pinched nerve in my neck. I have a dull headache that won't go away. It is here so much that I have given her a name - Fran. Also my pinkie finger on my left hand feels like it is asleep all the time. I am going to have it checked out.

So, there is my weight loss update. I have lost 79 pounds. My friend Deana has lost 64. She is one pound from her original goal. I have 21 pounds to go.
