Some non scale victories...

I put on a fleece that I could only wear when I was skinny.  It was snug, but wearable snug.  I felt good.  I could not wear this 2 weeks ago. 

I took a walk this morning with my little man.  4 miles!  I really love my walks.  I listen to music and just use them as a time to reflect and have some quiet time.  Shepherd loves them and sleeps the whole time.  This is my only quiet time in my day and I love it.  Thank God I can burn calories at the same time. 

I have a feeling I'm going to see the 160's next week.  I cannot tell you how good that makes me feel.  This time has been much harder than last.  I don't know if it's because I'm in my 30's now and my metabolism is shot or what.  But it's creeping off slowly.  But, hey, it is coming off, so I can't complain. 

Here's my tracker today:

Luna: 4 pts

Mocha: 4 pts

Veg Out Bagel from Einstein's: 11 pts

Apple: 1 pts

Probably a Kashi meal: 6 pts

ff popcorn: 1 pt

Total: 27 pts  (7 pts to play with)

I earned roughly 2 APs, but I'm not counting them.  I'm thinking I need to utilize the boost to my metabolism.  Obviously I'll eat if I'm hungry, but might as well gain the benefits of it. 

So......I'm going to see Twilight AGAIN tonight with my friend Yesenia.  I'm obsessed.  It's okay.

I posted one other time about weight loss and how you're an inspiration to me. Well, I finally got out of the 170's 2 weeks ago. I called it "leaving a decade behind". I was elated!! My youngest child is 4 1/2 so its been a while since I put this much effort into myself. My gym routine is a dedicated part of my schedule along with school and work. If I miss a workout I am miserable! That tells me how important it is for my sanity!

Again, thanks for all you honesty. You have no idea how reassuring it is to read your blog and learn from you!

Good luck at your weigh in.
