Lost another 1.5 lbs. this week (at 168.5 now, from 185 at the beginning of the year). I’m thinking this slow, almost imperceptible weight loss is good. I don’t have any deprivation.

Probably more importantly, I’ll be developing skills and learning from my many mistakes (see below), so I can maintain my health and sanity afterward.

Meal#5: 12am – 1 c yogurt, 6 oz fresh strawberries, 1 t vanilla, 18 drops stevia, 4 capsules probiotics opened and mixed in.
