The fallout from Valentines day...

I hope everyone had a wonderful V-day! I know mine was good/fun. I asked for my fiance to make me alfredo *drools*. It was great! He also made some steaks. Oh yeah, and did I mention that I made some oatmeal cookies?

Long story short, the day was great, but the night was filled my tummy hurting. The next day was somewhat painful too. LoL. I guess eating "healthier" has me unable to out-and-out splurge on foods. IT was all fabulous though. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

With all the indulgences this week, I was a little afraid to step on the scale this morning. Friday morning has been the traditional weigh in day though --so I figured good, bad, or ugly, I better do it. *drum roll please*

168.2 --same as the last weigh in. I'm soooooo excited. I know, doesn't really "mean" too much, but I'm excited I stayed the same. I have to commit to being exceptionally good this weekend and upcoming week. Must say "no" to the pizza --which has recently been sneaking back into the weekly food rotation.

Being at 168 pounds is very cool for a number of reasons. First off, it means I've solidly lost 20 pounds. Depending on where I "start" my weight loss from. (I know I weighed as much as 198 before I started kind of yo-yo dieting) I also know that I've lost another WW point. So I have to be smart about that. I guess it really signifies that I'm trying to do this though. The first 10 pounds could have been written off to water weight and such....this is a commitment. I'm going to do this! I'm going to lose the weight. 30 more pounds to go.

I look forward to seeing some size 12 jeans in my future. Another 10 pounds to lose before I start trying on some old dresses and begging to be taken out on a date =0p

168.2? You are barely overweight! You really need to gain 30!! Just kidding!! It is good to see you back, and you are doing great. You are literally on the cusp of normal weight, so stick to it and get it done!!!

Amazing! Congrats on all of your hard work!

Up until St. V day I too have been focusing on eating well...for once I am not stuck on calories...instead focusing on fruits and well as the appropriate amount of carbs, dairy, meat etc And it felt great! I was never hungrey :) We went out to a schmancy place for St. V day dinner (we had a very generous gift certificate ;). I had steak, huge stuffed potato...shirley temple to drink, bread and was yummy, but I was a hurtin'! I must remember that my body is my temple ;)
