I heart my scale today! (HYC Weigh-In)

After having a big loss last week I was not expecting to lose much this week. Well, the bike rides have been worth it. I lost 3.2 lbs this week! I'm so excited! I've proven to myself that making a plan and sticking to it really is the answer.

And you know what, I don't feel like I'm missing a thing. It's just food. I'm more interested in exploring new things. Things that my fat self hasn't been able to do. Things I didn't think a fat person should do. I have a long way to go but I feel strong. The support I get from blogging here is priceless. I can't say thanks enough, really.

I rode today. When I started out it was sprinkling a little and then all of a sudden, the rain stopped and I rode for 38 minutes. During the first 15 minutes I felt like my legs had weights on them. It just made me pedal harder. The rest of the time just flew by and I was done.

We're going out to dinner for my son's b-day - our favorite, Mexican food. I have a plan to eat slowly. Take a few chips from the bowl and break them into smaller chips and that's all for me from the bowl. Then meal-wise I plan to eat half whatever is on my plate. We will have cake when we get home. My mom made him a great chocolate cake w/choc icing. It's been sitting on the bar in it's glass case. I'll have a tiny piece with very little icing. And a big mug of coffee. It's looking like a great day to celebrate!

Hugs and kisses! If you have a chocolate, savor it, then drink your water!


  1. Wow! Another great loss. Bravo!

  2. Sounds like a terrific day! Congrats on your well-deserved weigh loss.

    I admire your approach to eating Mexican food at a restaurant. Chips and salsa are my downfall. I can't even risk eating one. And then chocolate cake! Ooh la la, girl.

    You're doing so great!

  3. Good job on the loss!! I'm really tickled for you.

    Hope you enjoyed your night out.

  4. The days sounds delightful. I'm so happy for you on the great loss! You pedaled the pounds right off :-). Bet next week brings more, you're on a roll.

  5. Well done on the great loss! There's nothing wrong with becoming a little addicted to the new lifestyle...

    Hope you had a fabulous time with your son!

  6. 3.2 is a fabulous loss! Congrats!

    Eating out is still a big stumbling block for me. I've never managed do only eat half, although I'm getting better at not eating everything! Hope it went well.

  7. That's a wonderful loss, especially following a big drop.
