A big removal week!

I've been dreaming of this--and doesn't it figure? It comes on the early weigh in week. I weighed in today since I don't want to bother with all of it while I am on vacation for 11 days, plus there is no meeting near my dad's house. Don't believe me? Go to the WW site and type in Zip code 13690 for "find a meeting". Doesn't exist!

So I went today and weighed in and I've lost 4.6 pounds! I really didn't think that would be the case. Yesterday was the first time I knowingly went over my points, and my activity has been down this week from last week--PLUS I weighed in 3 days early!

It feels so good. So good.

And I'm even more grateful now for my Saturday meetings, which are nice and quiet and the people are respectful. Today's meeting was out of control and people were a little bit snide towards one woman who kept making (admittedly) long drawn out points that seemed to go nowhere...

Anyway, who cares!? 4.6 gone! A total of 17.8. WOO HOO!

Now comes the real challenge--vacation, with family, all having cook outs and barbeques, and cake and cookies and desserts and my great-grandma's potato salad. But if I can survive that, i can survive anything. :-)

Yeah! Way to go! :)

No need to "wait for you get into shape" to go hiking....hiking is a perfect thing to do anytime - we can just pick differnt trails that have fewer hills or shorter distances or walk slower! That's why I like hiking, it's not a "team" sport and you can go your pace!

Let me know when you want to go and we'll do some short little's usually cooler out in the mts - and there's plenty we can hike that's easy.

Great!! Wow!! I better watch out, next thing you'll be passing ME! LOL!

I'm fighting it this week. The nephew (who is a bit underweight for his age) has been getting all sorts of treats that *I* can't seem to keep my paws off of. Couldn't resist the chocolated-covered frozen bananas I made for him!

And, darn it all, the boss brought in Krispy Kremes this morning. They are now sitting right outside of my office, calling me. Must....resist....the.....evil....pastries......
