16 pounds down. 84 to go. My menu this past week.

Lindora Skinny Mirror

Lindora Skinny Mirror

At each Lindora clinic, there is a skinny mirror to help you visualize yourself smaller and leaner. Pretty cool. : ) I worry that it allows some people to be in denial, but it’s a good exercise in visualization.

For accountability purposes, here is my weight-loss menu for this past week. 🙂  It’s been a good week. I’m feeling groovy and really enjoying working out.
