On another note: we seem to have so much shame and guilt and self-blame in this thread! (Calling ourselves "bad", assigning moral value to what we eat and how we look, etc.) I agree we should be positive - it should be about our health and confidence and satisfaction in reaching a goal.

I misread the part about losing 3 lbs or 5 lbs in 10 weeks, so I apologize for that. In 10 weeks, I'd want to do closer to 10, but 5 would be great!
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
