So I've been back on track.....really for the past couple of days. I've REALLY tracked all my food and kept my calories in line with my plan. I've exercised at least 3 days per week (hoping for more soon). I got all of my water in. Plus I've had a great attitude and in 3 days I've lost 2 pounds.

How are you doing?
I'm going back to my....
