So, as threatened, I've switched scales; that, combined with another good daily reading put me at 226 pounds this morning.
That's a total of 56 pounds (down from 282), or 4 stone, even. That leaves only 21 pounds to my next goal of 205.
Must start muscle toning.
 I can't think of a way to easily keep track of the fact that I've switched scales when discussing how much I've lost, so I'm pretty much just going to ignore it from now on and pretend I had one really good day today. ^_^
