Weigh In Day: Week 7

We weighed in this morning and I only lost .1 pounds. Curtis showed a pretty significant gain, but I think it's all water. We have been drinking upwards of 140 oz. a day!! WOW!

This is what Weight Watchers told me when I tracked my weight:

"If you're feeling a little neutral about your weight-loss result, here's a little fact to make you smile: The rate you`re losing weight at is considered to be very safe and healthy. So you're seeing success! You're doing the right thing.

Remember this anonymous saying this week: "Feel pride in how far you've come and confidence in where you're going."

I guess it's not that bad.

We have decided to kick things into high gear, though. We aren't going to eat out once this weekend,(read: Em is cooking Stir Fried shrimp, Pork Tenderloin and Italian Casserole) we are cutting back the booze, and we are going to journal like crazy! Our goal is a whopping 2 pound loss next week! Can we do it?

I also put a call into my doctor this a.m. to see what my weight was before we left for Europe. Granted it was with full clothes on, but I figured it might give me a little ego boost! Call me crazy, but I'm crazy like that!

EDIT: I called the doctor and I am down well over 10 lbs since before we went to Europe. Did I mention we each gained at least another 5lbs. eating crepes, pastries and Rene's Croissants!? Today is a good day and the start of a new week. Life is good.

Em! You will see me tonight. I'm going right at 5:00.

Congrats on the weight loss!!! :)

Yay! Even though it was only .1, at least it was in the right direction, right? And it was a direction and not a stand still. 10 pounds is great, way to go!
Have fun in the kitchen this weekend. Another reason to be thankful the heat wave is over.

Hey Em, I know you probably are being careful, but watch out for water poisoning, 140 oz. sounds like a lot!
