Weigh In Day: Week 9

Week 9 was a rough week. We ate out a lot over the weekend, but we remained on plan for the remainder of the week. We worked out almost every day and I cooked 3 nights out of the 4 we have had so far.

I am down 2.2 lbs for a total of 12.4!! WOO HOO! That puts me 9.7 lbs away from my 10% goal! SWEET!
Curtis is just nearing the 200 mark and wants so badly to get there, so we are working it extra hard this week.

We are headed to the Eric Clapton Crossroads Music Fest this weekend in Chicago. That equals food! and lots of beer. I am going to the grocery store and picking up some healthy snacks to keep in our hotel room. Thank goodness for small refrigerators in hotel rooms, right? We will be at Toyota Park from 12 noon until who knows when, so I am going to try my darnedest not to blow it!
Think about us and all that tempting soccer-park food, okay?

Nice Job Em!

I am very jealous of the Crossroads concert. Have a great time.

Every time you're tempted by something greasy and delicious, stop and think about those wedding pictures and how much you want to get back there. It will help.

That's fantastic, Em! Way to go!Congratulations!

Have a great time at the concert! Just remember to keep yourself hydrated with my patented 1-for-2 rule (TM)...one bottle of water for every two beers. Unless, of course, water costs twice as much as beer. If that's the case, throw caution to the wind.

35 flex points=17.5 light beers. True, but probably not WW-approved.

I have to say thank-you to my new found husband and wife team from MN. You guys are awesome! You keep me motivated and your words are always so kind.

Also, thanks for the sibling advice. You two are awesome!

Em, you're welcome and thank you! I knew you and I could be friends the minute I heard about your drinking problem. The mutual admiration society begins here!

Regarding the sibling advice, it's just nice to know I'm not the only one.

P.S. We even have the same 10% goal...
