So...some very big SVs this week. I made goal #2 and have lost a total of 10 lbs., which makes me so freaking happy. I worked hard and despite a few slip-ups especially over the weekend, I know I deserve it. I also know I'm not going to stay under 125 if I don't work my butt off to make up for the bang bang shrimp, king cake, cupcakes, and beer I had over the weekend, so I'm going to try my best this week to stay OP. I will be happy with maintaining after this past weekend, seriously. I'm already up a bit today, so I need to be careful. Plus, I am going to get my goal reward #2 this weekend and I want to make sure it's warranted. ;o)

I have a pretty cool NSV for this week. I bought this dress back in December, and while it fit me, it just didn't look that good. I was sad because it's so pretty, but it's the kind of dress that clings in a non-flattering way..and if you're not in shape, it doesn't look good. WELL...10 lbs. later, it looks fabulous, so I wore it out. I didn't get a photo, sadly, but trust me...I have proof that it looked good, hah.

Anywaaaay. I'm excited to go to Tibby's tonight, but I have to keep myself in check. I am planning on getting the crawfish étouffée, but only eating half of it. I am going to eat a good amount here at the office before we go so I can make sure half the dish fills me up. According to weightwatchers.com, it's 9 PP for a cup. But according to this, 3/4 cup is 11 PP. Hm. I think I'm probably going to estimate 12 PP for a full cup and allow myself up to that much. I'm worried about eyeballing, but hopefully by over-estimating the PP a bit I'll be OK.

I ran two miles outside this morning. It felt really good. It was a little chilly but as soon as I started running I was fine.

My toenail hasn't fallen off yet, so that's a plus. Not too much else to report, really. Oh, Lent starts tomorrow, sooo I may try and get a chocolate fix tonight. But after the étouffée, I may will probably just suck it up.

Sorry I've been such a slacker with my posts lately. I'll start posting my food logs again probably starting tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'll keep up with the Daily Challenges...I have enough to keep up with as it is. Maybe once in a while, if I am feeling a need for a boost or something like that.

Ten pounds! WOOOOOT!
I feel ya about working off your weekend. I'm trying to survive the jury duty diet...whatever crap you can get to an shove into your pie hole before they call you to the next panel :-/

As for the truth in a dress looking good, I'm such a very bad man. So many things spring to mind...almost none of them being like a framed certificate of you making that dress look good. Although I suppose it must have sprung to mind because there it is. Is it noticeable that I'm tired? ;-)

Good news on the toenail! Most that I've seen die have done so fairly quickly.

Yeah I am stoked! I think I'm doing pretty well keeping that number steady, but I know if I want to stay there I have to be diligent this week. So far, so good...but it's only Day 2. :p

Bleh, sorry about the Jury Duty diet. :[

Bahaha you are actually kind of close with your man brain! But that is an entry for another time in my personal journal, maybe today.

We'll see, man. That junk is getting blacker by the day...


wedding: kiss close-up
