Obstacles (Weekly Update #7)

I had a great week this last week, so clearly no obstacles got in my way. I’m finally happy with seeing some progress. “Kissed” the projected trendline, and only 1 pound off by end of week. More importantly, I’m bouncing around in a weight range that I haven’t seen for 20 years. So I have...
