so this whole week i've learned an important lesson. Never re-weigh. at one point I was in the 212's .. until i stepped back on the scale. the it was back in the 213's. this morning i actually weighed the same (supposedly) after potty as i did before potty.. yeah okay sure.. but my official weigh in is 214.5. so up a bit from last week, but still lower than i'd been hovering for a month or more. I'll take it.
