Starting weight 179.8 (just relieved that it was not in the 180s at this point). Someone at the meeting made Lifetime today and another person was 40 pounds down. The meeting was OK. I had been to that one before and there are some good people in it, and no apparent crazies.
Coincidentally, the Lose For Good campaign started this week. I set a goal for 10 pounds down (and out of the 170s) by the end of the 7 weeks.
I feel a lot less crazy now that I am doing something to stop the downward (or upward) spiral. Now I just need to stick with it.
