Removal Again

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! :-)

10.6?? At this rate, you'll be passing me before you know it!! (-14 total as of last weigh-in; next is Monday)

A round of applause and a bonus "golf clap" from Rincon!!

Go Kate!!!! :) Yipppeee!!!! :)

I can totally see that there is less of you! I can see it on you more than the general....

Keep up the great work! :)

PS...what's a golf clap?

A "golf clap" is that low-level, very subdued applause you hear on televised golf events after the players sink their shot.
