Thank G-d I did not gain this week- I stayed the same, which considering my overeating over the weekend, is good enough. I probably managed that because this week I REALLY tried hard to keep to my plan,

But my real progress has been with exercise. My aerobic walking speed has increased from 1100 steps in 10 minutes to up to 1200. And tonight I swam 50 laps-which I have done in the past, BUT the first 40 laps (my normal amount) I did in record time. Once it took me an hour to do the 40 laps (which equal a kilometer), and recently I managed to do them in about 56 minutes. Tonight I did them in 53. THAT'S progress!
