Oh ya, it's weigh in time!

I am so loving weight watchers!  I have been eating so much more this week than I have been the last few months.  And my body said..... THANK YOU.   I had almost forgotten what fruits and veggies were.  I feel good.  My focus before was losing weight and getting healthy, but I really was going about it all wrong.  After severely restricting myself these last few months, it is amazing feeling to know I can eat anything I want, and just build it into my daily plan.   I just finished my yummy lunch of grilled salmon, brown rice, and a yummy green salad with tomato's and avocado's with light balsamic dressing.  My tummy is happy and so am I.

By Tuesday of this last week, after a dreadful eating Easter weekend, I weighed in at 243.4.  When I weighed in today I was.....

That's a total of 3.4 pounds for the week.  Yippy!

 I can't wait to see those "30's" on the scale.

Early this morning 3:30 a.m. I got up with my girls to watch the royal wedding.  It was a blast.  When I was nine I got up by myself to watch Diana get married to what's his name.  I wanted to do it with my girls this time.  I pulled out the china and we had a "tea" party.  We don't drink tea, so we had hot cocoa, and fancy little cookies.   Last night I had very carefully calculated out the points value for the cookies and cocoa so I would know what they were costing me today.   And guess what!  I didn't feeling like eating anything at that crazy time of the morning!  I watched my girls sip on their cocoa, nibble their cookies, and make a memory that hopefully will last a lifetime.  That was all I needed.

I think when I hit 30 pounds lost, I'll post some updated pic's.
