I’m back! Finally. I know it has been since Wednesday and between now and then I’ve been sick, been loopy on DayQuil, slept alot, have coughed up various colors of green (TMI?) and have done a crapton of homework. It’s going to be a crazy end to the semester.
Anyways, so with being sick and eating a lot of bad (yet delicious) sickly comfort food, I only lost .2 pounds this week. I lost that much the week before last then last week I lost 4.8 pounds so maybe that pattern can repeat. I’m slowly feeling better but it’s one of those things where I’m feeling fine, but then when I get in larger groups I start to feel bad. It’s really weird. So I’m going to try to work out this week and maybe get some racquetball in too!
Non-Scale Victory: So I said I would never say three things on this blog: my social security number, my GRE score, or my waist size. Well time to break my own rule [insert deep breath here]. When I started this weight loss odyssey in the summer, I bought a pair of size 54 pants. Yeah… like 4 and a half feet of waistline. Pretty insane right? Today, I bought a pair of size 44’s. (For those playing at home, yes that is 10 inches.) I wore 44’s in 6th grade (which is pretty said in itself) but now I’m back down to it and it feels great. I have quite a bit to go and even thought I didn’t lose that much this week, that made me pretty happy. Legit.
Goals! Now I’m down to 275.2. Now what? I’m only 18 pounds away from 100 freakin’ pounds! What then? These are the questions that keep me awake at night (unless I’m knocked out from sudaphed.) So here’s my ultimate goal: (get stoked. Here… We… Go…) My ultimate goal weight is 157 pounds. Yep, that’s right, 200 pounds of total weight loss awesomeness. A lofty goal? I don’t think so. Doable? Heck yes. This thing is going to happen. I have no clue when it will happen. Maybe in a year, maybe in 2 years, maybe tomorrow (okay.. not tomorrow) Regardless, I’m stoked and I’m going to work on it starting…. now. Game Time Baby!
Breakfast: I just had a cinnamon toast eggo thingy with a little peanut butter. 3.5 points
Lunch: I wasn’t feeling too well and with that came a little antisocial so just the two of us went to Mellow Mushroom for Megan’s birthday lunch. We split an appetizer of their fantastic bruschetta and a cheese calzone that kind of looked like the horn phone on the Flintstones. It was a great cheap lunch. Not a bad 13 point lunch!
Snack: For a snack I had Christian nachos (matzos and a Laughing Cow Chipotle Queso cheese wedge) Pretty awesome stuff. 2 points
Dinner: We were trying to figure out where to go for dinner that wouldn’t be too expensive or unhealthy. After driving around and making a trip to Earth Fare, we decided to do something a little different. Yesterday, Megan bought this really nice Chinese dish set from World Market so we bought some vegan dumplings from Earth Fare and Pepper Chicken with rice at home on our new plates. It was a cute, quaint and delicious dinner. A good way to celebrate Megan’s birthday. 13 points
So today I got to 31.5 points. A pretty great way to start off a new week with a lot of weight to lose. Here… We… Go… See ya tomorrow.
