I weighed this morning and I lost another pound. I was hoping that I would be further along in my weight loss, but I'm going to be patient. If I could lose 5-7 pounds by Easter, I would be proud. I hope I can do that. I'm going to try very hard and not mess up. If I lose the weight, I'm going on a shopping spree in the LL Bean catalogue and order some chino capris. I'm tired of keeping mine belted tight so that they don't fall off. I think I deserve them.

I noticed that we have added another follower. Welcome!

Weight Watchers Week 6

I weighed this morning and I have lost another two pounds. That makes a grand total of 12.5 pounds. I have a long way to go but that is a super start. I still need to add some exercise. I really am going to work on that this week. I have continued to eat out quite a bit but with planning. I just have to work everything in to my daily points. I had a cupcake this week but I accounted for it. And the saga continues...

I weighed this morning and I have lost 2 pounds in the past two weeks. In a way, I was dissappointed, but it could have been worse. I could have stayed the same. My mother and I were going to stay at church and eat afterwards tomorrow, but she and her friend are having second thoughts. We decided to go to a restaurant and eat. That will be good. I was afraid that if I stayed and ate a church, I would mess up my diet. I like going out to lunch after church, even if it is just to Wendy's.

Weight Watchers Week 5

I lost 2.5 pounds this week. I was able to get back on track. I gained 3 pounds on my trip to Charleston so I was glad to get rid of most of it this week. It is going slowly but if I can keep this up and still live my life eventually I will get there!

Well, I'm holding steady, weight-wise. I'm doing pretty well with my eating and have been real busy with just ordinary stuff...I don't have much new to report but wanted to check in. I have a migraine today and that makes it hard to come up with anything interesting to say...I will try to do better soon! Hope all of you are doing great with your dieting efforts.

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a week, but there's been nothing really to post. Friday, I got out the tape measure and measured the key areas of my body. I had shrunk! I was excited.

Since I was a little smaller, I decided to do what I call "shopping in my closet". I took out seven of my favorite wool skirts from Talbots and Pendleton. I tried them on. The results: four of them I can wear, two of them I can almost wear, and one was a definite "NO WAY". The one I couldn't wear went back into the closet. I feel like I have some new clothes to wear. I need to pick out tops to wear with them. I'm going to wear the four definites this week and then see about the almosts next week. When I say I can almost wear, I mean that they fit okay, but I would like for them to be a little looser.

Yesterday, I splurged a little bit at the bingo fundraiser. I ate lots of ham, baked beans that had been made with brown sugar, a roll with butter, a 3/4" square brownie and a 3/4" raspberry bar cookie. I worked hard while I was there, so I feel that I burned off the extra calories. Afterwards, I went to Barnes and Noble and parked a good distance away.
