Earlier this year, I wrote about my desire to lose a little weight. I have been working night shift for several years and had noticed an increase in my weight each and every year since switching to the new schedule.

After about 6 weeks, I had reached my goal! 10 .2 pounds to be exact! I bought a scale and I monitor my weight semi~weekly!
Healthy snacks! I believe they made a difference!
