Happy Monday, everyone!!
I have some super fun and wonderful scale related news, but you have to hang on until the end for that. ;-)
Friday I went to see the Muppets. I have to say, y'all, I was a little disappointed. I LOVE the Muppets, but the movie fell flat for me. Although, I did love the songs and the cameos. Sheldon rocks! I also think I decided that Scooter is my favorite Muppet because he makes sure everything gets done. Ha!
Saturday, I was feeling quite festive. I know you all are probably sick of pictures of me, but I took this one before my party on Saturday.
Sunday, I finished putting up my tree.
I had a funny experience on Sunday. We have a new priest that came to us from Wichita Falls where he has been the last 10 years. Sunday, I was serving communion and I went up to the priest to get the wine. He did a double take at me and said, "It is so great to see you. Looking good!" I just stammered a bit and said, "Thank you, Father." I have never met this man in my entire life!! It was obvious by his words and tone that he thought he knew me. It must have just been an amazing coincidence. I told my mom that I choose to take it as a sign from God that I am on the right track!
Today, I'm wearing another new outfit. I will spare you yet another pic, but I tell you that I just feel so good in all my new clothes. Every once in a while, I almost feel pretty. That is a big, huge stinking deal. I don't feel it all the time and some moments I feel downright ugly. But I'm seeing glimpses and I know that it is possible to feel that way.
Now for the big news! I hit an official all time low! *189.4* I am beyond 95 pounds lost and working toward the big 1-0-0!! That was a 2.6 pounds loss for this week. YAY!! I have lost 7.4 pounds since starting my What's the Point program for an average of 1.48 pounds per week.
If I continue that pace, I would lose 4.4 pounds in the next 3 weeks which means my goal of 100 pounds lost by Christmas is certainly possible. But I will have to keep my focus through all of these tempting holiday festivities!! I have five different holiday events to get through this week: I have two holiday work lunches, a work afternoon reception, dinner with a friend, & a holiday party with my Jazzercise friends. It is going to be a HUGE challenge to stay within my calorie ranges this week.
Plus, the Skittle went a little nutso and I have to take it into the shop which means I'm not going to make it to CF tomorrow morning. Lots of challenges springing up. We will see how I get through them.
