I was really surprised at the 9 pound loss this past month. I ate more than usual what with first spending a week at my sisters then 2 weeks with my grandchildren. Also my schedule was totally off, not so much meditating or visualizing as usual. I did keep up my swimming twice a week at the lake & in my sister's pool. Probably my saving grace. I thought that the last part of my loss would be slow. Everyone always says that the closer you get to goal the harder it is to lose weight, but I'm just not finding that to be true. Thank God!
