Thank you for the good wishes, everyone. Yesterday's rest (and yes, I fasted all day) did feel good, although I'm not fully recovered. Had to spend the entire day at my elderly in-laws' place to help them get ready for a medical procedure. I did eat today, good stuff. Scrambled eggs and veggies in the morning, leftover ground beef sauce over spaghetti squash for the other two meals. And a little Italian salami and an apple.
But I was in shock almost all day from today's scale reading: 140.2. I actually hit my most optimistic goal for my 7-day intensive push. The goal now for the next week is to wrestle the inevitable jump upwards back down below 141 and keep it there. Till New Year's.
Sage advice. My tummy was feeling a bit inflamed (it hurt a bit when I pressed on it) so I thought giving it a rest was a wise idea. It was better today. Good thing, because I really needed to eat.

I will check everybody's journals tomorrow. I'm pretty wiped, and running late. I was so tired I fell asleep on my in-laws' couch with the TV on, which only happens when I am really zonked.
Delivery of three new sweaters (half price, free shipping, woot!) waiting for me when I got home. All size small. They all fit. I feel like I'm walking around in somebody else's body and am a little weirded out by it.
