Sixty-fifth Weigh-in

I knew I wouldn't be in the 140s for long but didn't figure on getting through it so quickly. I'm down 2.2 lbs this week and am now in the 130s. I lost a point from my daily allowance, gained a star for my bookmark and I'm so close to goal that I'm having a hard time believing it.

I'm not celebrating quite yet, though. This past week has been terrible in terms of eating and exercising. I also wore different (lighter) clothes to weigh-in because my normal outfit is in the wash. That 2.2 lbs is feeling rather unrealistic.

So next week I'm expecting a gain as this past week catches up to me. I did the best I could, but there's only so much you can do when every other night you're going out to dinner with friends to celebrate something. I did damage control as much as possible, but I don't think it was enough. I've also been feeling rather down about my friend, so some emotional eating has been getting the better of me.

Ah well. It's a new week now. Since I have absolutely nothing to do this weekend (bliss!), I'm going to sit down and make some menus and plan on trying new recipes. I also bought the new Weight Watchers magazine this morning so hopefully there's some good info in there.

Have a great weekend everyone. Hopefully you're doing well, celebrating some NSVs, and kicking butt at the scale :)

EDIT: What the heck. I might as well be happy about today and get out of my funk. I ran a 10k, I'm no longer overweight, and I've earned another star for my bookmark. What's not to be happy and excited about? This past week was just a blip and I can hit the ground running again just like I've always done. I'm going to head out today and buy myself a water bottle and maybe a new Webkinz as a reward.

You are doing awesome!

Even if you do have an up week next week, look at all that you've accomplished!!!

As far as your friend goes, I've had times when I see a friend and I just realize that we've gone in different directions in life. It sucks, and can be very sad. But it is also normal. I hope the trip turned out better in the end.
