Weigh In Wednesday

I'm very excited today. I lost 2 pounds this week!! Even with the bread from Little Village!!! My total loss is 19.4 pounds. We leave for the beach on July 15th & I was hoping to lose 5 pounds before we leave. This 2 really helped that goal.

Something else that helped the goal is my new found love for Italian salad dressing. Ever since I was a kid my mom would tell us to try things that we didn't like because our taste change. So true! I never ever liked Italian dressing. I always want the fattening ranch or honey mustard. My neighbor brought me some home grown tomatoes this week & I ate one with salt & pepper & Italian dressing & it was so good! Last night I had a salad & used it.  It's half the calories of the other dressings I like.

Today is our neighbor Alexandra's 18th birthday. We're all going to dinner at the Chimes tonight. I LOVE Chimes. Love, Love, Love! I'll have to make wise choices which is difficult for me when I'm somewhere I love.

That's it for now.

Toodles!

  2. Congratulations. I lost 2.4... thought I was in the lead in reaching our 5 pound goal. Guess not. :) I guess we just have to work that much harder.

  3. Great job!!! Keep up the good work!

    Another tip for dinner out somewhere you love! Drink a lot of water or have some fruit (zero points) just before you leave...then you won't be starving when you get there & eat more than you should. Or order your favorite, whatever it is, and a to go box at the same time - box up a portion immediately to take home & only eat what's left!

  8. You are doing so great Traci! I haven't been to Chimes in years, but I have vivid memories of cheese fries and of course, lots of beer. It would be hard to make good choices there. But I am sure you did.

    It is interesting how our tastes do change as we grow older. Some things we never acquire a taste for...like sushi! As for me, it's mushrooms & coconuts. I'm glad you are enjoying Italian dressing. It's so good with tomatoes in the summertime.

    I'm at 6 lbs down...slow and steady, but it is progress.
