oh wow, y'all! i went 15 days strong, STRONG, then let some co-worker dangle them apple slices and caramel sauce in my face and then things declined from there. it's been 8 days since i broke my fast, my gosh it feels like 8 months. so, this is day 1, again. i DID keep 9 lbs off of the 15 i lost, so im going to use that as a motivator that what i was doing DOES work. and it's all about the long term, huh, b/c i started at 245 and i'm not there anymore, and thats good.
