Scale Tales: Don’t Forget to Track!

Hello, Internet! How we doin’? How we doin’? It’s another week of Scale Tales! Woot! Let’s get the bad news out of the way. I seem to be flipping trapped in a damned holding pattern about dropping weight. AUGH. The fantastic news I guess is I’m down 0.2 tenths of a pound? Yay? At least…
