Hi, Lilstar! Thanks for the post, I am thrilled to know that I am helping someone. I've read so many posts from others that helped me to take the step to start my fast, and I have read and re-read all of those posts when I felt like giving up!
I stepped on the scale a minute ago and it said 175.5, gotta love that .5 of a pound! So that's 7.5 lbs and this is day 5 for me.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing!
