Plugging along

212.4 (this morning)
211.0 (Wednesday morning)
213.7 (official JC WI on Monday night)

I have been remiss in updating, primarily due to the fact that I have actually been busy at work this week for the first time in months. I'm not complaining--I actually couldn't be happier to be busy again--just explaining.

My official loss for last week, based on Monday night's weigh-in, was 1.1 lbs. I'll take it. Because I usually weigh in before 9:00 a.m., without having eaten breakfast, and weighed in this time at 6:00 p.m., I probably actually lost more for that week. . . . but it will all even out in the end.

The scale is up a little this morning due to my eating a late dinner plus 320 calories or so worth of wheat bread which was not on my list of planned foods. Oops. That's what happens when you schedule your hair appointment at the time you'd normally be eating dinner and then go to the grocery store famished: you end up buying things you shouldn't.

I got right back on track this morning. That is one thing I am fairly proud of myself for in the these 5+ weeks on Jenny Craig; I've had some slips, but in each instance, I have immediately gotten back on track. So often in the past, I've allowed one meal, or one day, of poor choices to lead to my quitting altogether; not this time.

My gym bag is packed for my second gym workout of the week tonight. So things are going pretty well.

Congrats on the loss. That's all we need to do, just keep plugging along. It isn't glamorous or exciting like some of those other weight loss superstars but we'll get there. So, do we get to see pictures of the new hair? Hope you have a great weekend.
