Wow! That is amazing!

I had a delicious breakfast burrito this morning for only 6 points! Low carb wheat tortilla, non-fat Greek yogurt, egg whites, veggies, and a little bit of cheese...YUM.

Wow! That's great! I bet you were tickled pink when you saw that loss.

That's awesome! And that must have been some pizza!

I'm down another 4 pounds for a total of 6.6 since I started 2 weeks ago. So happy!

My biggest dilema currently is figuring out what to do for exercise now that the rains have descended here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm thinking I need a good exercise tape to do on the very rainy days. Anyone have one they would recommend?

I would recommend Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and Yoga Meltdown. I have also done a couple of Bob Harper videos that are good.

Made Cheeseburger soup tonight! Really good... I used FF broth and evaporated milk. I also chopped up tomato and put that on top after it was served. Next time I think I'll make it Mexican and use Mexican cheese and maybe some canned tomatoes with green chilis!

Just an update after WI on Sat. I'm now down 34.8 (oh WHY couldn't I have just lost that .2 this week ) . NSV: I'm a size 12 pants and dress & a size L for shirts/coat. I started at a 16/18for pants & dresses and XXL for shirt/coat.
What's funny is that being a 12, I just realized I can now officially shop in "regular" stores. Sometimes at 14 you can waver between Misses & Women's / Plus.. but not at a 12. I almost cried in the fitting rooms last night at TJ Maxx and Target...and for once it was going to be a GOOD cry. When I'm at goal I think I might be an 8. I have not been a single digit in 10 years and it was only 1 dress that was a single digit. I have to remember to be as grateful as I am right now whenever that happens.

This is something I want to pass on to everyone here to do for themselves. Every NSV or SV, shouldn't be taken lightly. FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING. FEEL PROUD OF YOURSELF. BE GRATEFUL AND HAPPY YOU STARTED, and RESTARTED and even if this is your 10th or 100th time-- be proud you are headed in the right direction!

Now: Take a minute to breathe and let it sink in - just how far you have come. Share it here. Do NOT be ashamed to be proud of yourself for doing something great just for you. It's so easy to be proud of someone else. Take a minute to feel that feeling for you today.

Whether you are up .5 or whatever, remember that feeling. Remember how far you have come and STILL BE PROUD.

Some of you may not have an issue with doing this but I was raised not to be proud of myself- weird, right? It was bragging, being too full of oneself--always something negative. I'm not saying I'm screaming "I'm AWESOME!" from the rooftops every morning... but I think I deserve to be proud every once in awhile and I know all of you here do too. So if you were raised like I was-- I am giving you permission to be proud of yourself. My WW leader & my husband have given me permission to be as well so I figured I'd pass it on.
Thanks for listening to my little rant. I am so grateful I have you all here to write to

Congratulations -- you'll hit the 35 mark next week!

I liked what you've said -- I put my weight loss in perspective for my husband -- I've lost 37.2 lbs, which was nearly the same as my suitcase that I packed for my trip last week (he brought it downstairs and put it in the cab for me). His eyes got really wide!

That's amazing! I never thought of it that way before. To think how heavy those suitcases feel lugging them in and out of the car too! You have to feel so much lighter just thinking about it! Awesome job! Congrats!!

DH helped me hide DD's birthday cake. The big day is tomorrow, but we had cake yesterday. There is lots left and it was sitting on the counter taunting me. DH helped me find room in the cupboard and it is no longer taunting me! Well it is still calling my name, but it is muffled nicely. WI is still a couple of days away. I appreciate DH supporting me!

Christina, I agree! I wasn't raised to not talk myself up, but of course there are times and places for it. And THIS is a place for it, along with at weighin and on the WW boards. And if someone asks about your loss or compliments you. Those are the times to really own it. Oh, and when you're at home and you catch a glimpse of your back, or the side of your thigh, or that you don't shriek when you accidentally look in the mirror...heck, that you *purposely* look in the mirror... Those are the times to be really proud!

That said...I cannot believe how my thighs are changing with my jogging! I tried to not notice the changes while they were getting bigger, but I really can't help but notice them as they get smaller.

That is a GREAT way to think of it, and pretty shocking! To think that we were carrying that weight around on our bodies...wow.

I had to go with cupcakes for my b'day last week. I was tempted at the last minute by the devil's food cake, and worse, the tall devil's food cake, but got the cupcakes instead (devil's food). For anyone in Seattle, this was at the PCC co-op, where they have the BEST devil's food cupcakes and chocolate buttercream frosting *anywhere*. We made the special trip up to Seattle just for the treats! So good. And without large amounts of cake sitting around after.
