Thought I'd post again... I have lost a little bit of weight, though I'm not quite sure how much. (I wrote the starting number and put it in a safe place, and - you guessed it - promptly forgot where the safe place was.) Anyway, budget constraints mean I am not cooking the healthiest foods in the world. The difference is that I'm not eating out and I'm not eating as much. I'd like to be exercising, but with this latest bout of sinus/chest infection, my asthma is a mess and exercise is out of the question. I'm doing good to walk outside without hacking up a lung. But I am also feeling better every day, so maybe by next week I'll be able to go for a slow ride on the recumbent bike.
You gotta do what you gotta do. Hopefully I'll lose a little in the move next month. There's a patio and room to play outside, so we plan to get out as a family and play in the yard. (What a novel concept that is!)
So, overall - no complaints. I'm pleased with the progress.
