Inexplicably, after fighting to break below 226.2 for weeks, and being up to 229 earlier this week, this morning I weighed 225.7. I don't know how it happened, but it just goes to show, once again, that dogged persistence can often bring unexpected success. So I've officially now lost over 45 pounds since August, and when I break 224, it will be 60 pounds since my all-time high in 2004.
We ordered The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home and The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child: Volume 1: Ancient Times: From the Earliest Nomads to the Last Roman Emperor. Can't wait to get my hands on those.
