Well, so much for that. I got through the first day but the second was a wash, I was sooooooooo hungry, on my period, and just threw it away so to speak w/ a coffee and a giant muffin after a harrowing morning. I believe I may have been too enthusiastic about this, I should have waited until my period was over, and until my scales came in the mail.
I'm going to call it a false start. My scales come today (hope hope!) and then we can do it RIGHT.
