Good News! I have managed to lose about 3 pounds - that's without exercise and just trying to eat a little better. Not a fast loss by any means, but still...I am happy with it.
Bad News - the reason for the lack of exercise is because I have been sick for about a month, and am now at home with bronchitis and suspected pneumonia. I had a chest X-ray done so we'll know for sure soon. In any case, I thought I'd take the time to write a very brief update before collapsing back into my bed.
Thanks for listening :)
