Woo Hoo!

So, I have been doing really well with eating smaller portions, better, healthier food, etc. I kind of follow Weight Watchers points and just control what I eat. The cravings have subsided. If I need something sweet I have a 1 point WW snack or a Special K bar. I have been drinking lots of water, walking (when stupid meetings and conferences don't interfere) and doing a bit of Tae-Bo at home.

I weighed myself today and was XXX.5 (I am not sure why that is underlined! I hope it's not a link to a porn site. So sorry if it is! I blame my husband.) So anyway, I called my Dr. because I had been weighed there on Dec. 6 but closed my eyes due to the horror of the digits that I knew would come up. The nurse told me that on Dec. 6 I had weighed XXX.5. Want to know the difference in those seemingly similar Xs?

Drum roll please...I have lost 16 pounds! Holy crap! Now, those are of you that see me everyday might be skeptical, but it's really true. So as soon as I lose, like, a bunch more weight and stop hiding in loose, non-form fitting clothes, you will be able to see for yourself! :)

Bring on the bridesmaid dress!

Pin It!

Wahoooooski! You are inspiring me to get my ass in gear, girlfriend! I lost another 2, for a grand total of 5, so I'm pretty much back to pre-Christmas Candy Pigfest 2007 weight. Just in time for GS cookies and cookies I had to buy from Missy today. OMG I will just have to bake them and bring them to school, and not order GS cookies. Or something.
And the link? Says I need an account. Yikes!

That is AWESOME! Way to go! Your hard work IS worth it. Congrats.

Wanted to add to my comment to your comment on today's post...that student has not been in a school for two years. He sold drugs on a street corner and was without responsible parents. So, he is in 6th grade, having missed 5th. Can you imagine him in your classroom? Poor kid; I really hope he makes it in our school.

P.S. And TOO FUNNY on the porn link comment!

debbie-do what I do; instead of buying the cookies, just write the check, donated to the girl's troop. She'll get more in the end that way anyway.

mrs4444--Oh, good idea! I know of at least 2 GSs that will be hitting me up!
Sorry to blogjack you, Ang!
