So, I was a bit worried this week because I let the counting fall by the wayside just a bit and a few times I had no idea what I was eating would "cost" in terms of points. For instance, the General and I planned to go to Uno's for dinner on Thursday, but when we got to the mall, the Uno's had closed! So we went to Sbarro's. I find in these cases, I have a tendency to undereat, as opposed to overeat, because I'm so nervous about the points values.
So today, I got up at 6:30, not having gone to bed till 1:30 with preparations for the shower underway until the wee hours, and dragged myself over there. I felt good about weighing in, but I didn't think it would be much--I thought maybe a pound or two.
In fact, it was 3.8! I've lost over 10 pounds, now at 10.6 pounds gone. I'm in shock. I got another sticker this week and a big round of applause from the group. I'm so, so happy.
So today at the shower, I've modified the recipes a bit to keep them low, but I'm just going to enjoy myself. I lose a point again this week, so I'm down 2 points from where I started, but I don't mind. I haven't been using them all anyway.
So that's the news from the 'burg. Back to decorating and cooking! :-)
