happy - got thru day 2 - better then day one now down 7.8 pounds. just need a great day three. feeling good / confident of finally getting back on this. i fully expect to lose 15 pounds in the first week. i've done this enough to know the numbers.

not perfect (i.e. under 600 calories) but i did OK, got home and didn't over-eat. also decided to simply state the pounds without the hundreds decimal (hahaha) just seems a little more manageable :)

need a "perfect day" today and hope to keep that up till i'm back down...

not going well - i actually had a couple days getting close then one full day "perfect", then the xMas collapse. i'm trying to get it going again today and i need to start weighing in again daily. this morning i realized that the last time i was successful (prior to africa) i was 100% dedicated to the effort. i was living and breathing weight loss and my whole life revolved around it. since kenya i have been dedicated almost entirely to the obligations that grew from going to kenya. in fact they have expanded to include somalia as well and the obligations are not going to lessen any time soon - in fact ever, but neither do i want to simply gain all the weight back...

for now i hope to get back on the diet today. 100% on it. worry about tomorrow tomorrow.
