This week's numbers.

So just shy of 2 months in.

I have lost 19 pounds.

I have lost 2 inches off my hips, and 1.5 each from my waist and bust. (not happy about the bust part!)

I am down from a snug 24 to a 22 (almost a 20)


I am very pleased with myself right now.

Down two more pounds this week! Which means I am 2 pounds away from my goal to lose 20 pounds before Marscon (a local science-fiction convention). Marscon is two weeks away, so I think I am going to make it!

So far I have made it through social events, family events, dates, and even a couple of meltdowns (not diet-related meltdowns, but definitely were triggers to emotion-eat) and so far I am managing to stay on plan and lose weight each week. I am really pleased with not just myself for sticking to this for almost 2 months now, but with Weight Watchers in general. This is a way of eating that I can live with.

Happy Dance!

Down 3 more pounds this week, which brings the overall total to 16 pounds. I've lost a bowling ball! Or two healthy newborns! Or 16 Chipotle burritos!

According to WW, I've also lost 5% of my body weight.

I tried on jeans over the weekend. I can almost wear a size 20 again.

I haven't completely drunk the kool aid.

I made it through a weekend that involved Chinese buffet AND the Superbowl and got to eat lots of tasty things and still lost a pound over the past week. Yay me!

I may have brought a WW friendly dish to Superbowl Sunday. (shrimp cocktail) but I still don't feel like I have completely drunk the kool aid yet. I don't think anyone will ever convince me that frozen grapes are an awesome snack. Well, maybe they are if you are out in the desert, at Burning Man, and it's 110 degrees. But off-playa? Heckno. (That said, I have decided that cottage cheese sprinkled with garlic salt is AMAZING. But it's no replacement for pizza or anything)

Getting bored.

I did kind of a lame job grocery shopping last week. Partly in an effort to save money by making myself eat what was already in the cupboards and freezer. But partly because I did not do much in the way of planning.

It's funny, I gleefully eat the same breakfast every day (coffee and greek yogurt- I think it's a ritual now), but last night as I made chicken and veggies for the 3rd night this week I was cringing. Didn't help that I think that frozen broccoli was expired.

Today is payday and this weekend I will grocery shop and try to be a bit more imaginitive.
