I lost....

Another five pounds.

I hit the 50 pound mark. I have lost 50.8 pounds.

I reached my goal of 160, but actually went below that!!

The little stars at the bottom of the picture below, show my progress! I LOVE those little stars!

Today weight?


So, increasing my protein DID help me break through my plateau! I'm so pumped right now, it's kind of ridiculous! I weighed yesterday morning with happy results, but I tried not to get my hopes up for this mornings weigh in since the last few weeks have been so up and down on a daily basis. But I know I have been working hard and I have been consistent, and I was assuming my body was just trying to adjust to getting below that 160 point. I have to admit, I am nervous about a small gain next week, but mentally prepared to continue to work hard, and not get frustrated with the scale.


Here are the two new awards I get to add to my WW Key Chain.

1. 50 Pound Award
2. Goal Award (I had mixed emotions on accepting this today)

I set my goal, along with my Physician, at 160 pounds, a LONG time ago. I wanted recognition today at the meeting for reaching that goal since I have been working towards it for almost four years. I am going to keep working towards 150, and eventually I will need to officially change my goal weight with Weight Watcher's, but this week, I just want to gloat a bit!

Here is my chart, and I am back much closer to my GOAL line now!
I have 6.6 more pounds to lose, and six weeks to do it in.

I haven't posted a picture in a while of miles walked, so here's that too! Right on schedule!

I have walked 151 miles since June 1st.

Some Fun Facts For Me In The One Fifties!!

1. I haven't seen this weight since High School, and I'm 46 years old.

2. I can now apply for the WW Leader position. I have to weigh 150 (because I am 5'5") to be a leader, but I can apply for the job if I have less than 10 pounds to lose!! I need to officially check all this out, but it will be the first thing I do NEXT week!

3. New Mac Computer! I really would like to take my blog to the next level, but my dying computer has prevented that, and there is only so much I can do from the iPad, but I would love to have weekly meal ideas, lots of recipes and exercise ideas. So I told myself (and my husband), when I officially got below 160, I would buy a new computer. YAHOO! YIPEE!! WHOO WHOO!!
(Mike, you do remember this conversation right? You were kinda snoring, but I think you nodded in agreement.)

4. Size 10. I went shopping on Wednesday, just to try clothes on for fun. I ONLY grabbed size 10's off the rack, NO 12's. Everything fit!! Then I got brave and tried on a size 8, just to see how tight they would be. They zipped! So, while in the dressing room, I did a few squats, lunges, stretches, sat down, stood up, squatted again.......and BOUGHT THEM!!

Look guys!!

My butts still wide, but pretty sure they'll fit perfect after a little more stretching.....then NO WASHING!!! See? I got this size 8 thing all figured out!!

I'm friggin ECSTATIC!!

So you can see, getting into the 150's means a whole bunch of really cool stuff!!!!!


Oatmeal, Nut Butter, Almonds


I made my 5 egg whites with 1 tsp of Coconut Oil, topped them with Salsa, and left off my usual slice of cheese. Not nearly as tasty and as texturally satisfying, but sufficient, and I couldn't taste the Coconut Oil like I thought that I might. So I guess I'll keep it!



Turkey Burger Patties, Cheese, Salsa, Smashed Avocado, Veggies
