It took me a little while to get down off the soap box of my previous post, but it is that time of the week again--the one where force you to read about my weight-loss resolution whether you want to or not; well I suppose you could technically stop reading now so I can't really force you).
I would like to start off by telling you that I have a new BFF: my scale! I love it and on Saturday it loved me. Last week I lost 3 1/2 pounds! Celebrate with me; do a little dance of joy! So that brings my total loss since starting my sister's challenge (of losing 4 pounds) to 6 pounds. What this primarily means for me is that I don't have to worry too much when my sister is in town this week. I can eat! I hope to still be good and continue going to the gym and all that, but there will be no weighing whether it is worth it this week. Bring on the cookies, the shakes, the pizza (all still within reasonable portions of course because just because I'm not going to worry about the item itself I think it is still a smart idea (as in healthy) to contain my portions).
Oh, and by the way, to those of you who haven't done a little dance of joy for me: I would have done one for you.
