219.5!!!!

I did it!! I got below 220lbs in my first 4 weeks! I am down 10.5 lbs, and I have lost 7 inches. :)

I was so good on Thanksgiving, indulging when I wanted to, but not going over board. I stayed away from the rolls (they are store bought anyway, right?) and I had just a smidgen of pie. I ended up baking 3 pies for Thursday's festivities and I ended up leaving ALL of them at my parents house. We took home some leftovers (no pie!), even though I tried to brush them off with all of my might. (Thanks Nancy! :wink:) Curtis and I ended up eating just a little bite of each thing and then tossing it out. I felt satisfied, not overstuffed.

I am very proud of this accomplishment today. I think the first few weeks are always the toughest. You have to get into a routine; tracking calories and exercising diligently. Once I got started, there was no stopping me. I am motivated and excited about continuing this journey.

Thank you all again for your support. And continue to stick around, because this is just the beginning!

YAY!!!!!!!! I'm so proud of you! I hit 10 lbs this week, too -- mostly because my stepmother's Thanksgiving dinner was NASTY lmao!

Let's go out and celebrate! We'll drink water and nibble on lemon slices HA :*

Great job! Let's keep it up and we'll be twigs in time for summer :D :D
