I have 17 more days of my challenge issued by Neal. I am a bit doubtful I will be able to reach it, but I don't want to give up. I had a mediocre week. I didn't journal my calories every day, and I gained half a pound.

This morning when I updated Neal on my progress to my goal, he suggested the same idea. I am so excited about it! I am hoping to go tonight and re-join the gym in town, Lord willing.
