Every bone in my body was telling me to STAY AWAY FROM THE SCALE this morning, but I knew I couldnt' avoid it forever. Wasn't as horrible as I thought: 188 lbs. That's what I lost during the first week, plus 1/2 lb. Definitely expected it to be worse, so not feeling too down about it.
Grilled up some skinless chicken breasts for the coming week. I'll use them for emergency meals when I don't have time to fix something proper. Stocked up on my Slim Fast shakes and low cal microwave meals, put a new filter thingy in my faucet water filter, ready to get back on track!
