I didn’t lose any weight, but I didn’t gain any, either, despite some rather poor eating choices and very little exercise. Always try to find something good you did the previous week, as weight loss and negativity are poor bedfellows. My good thing: at least I put down all my food and calories, so yay for record keeping!

Have a great week and see you next Monday.
