This Week: 189
Last Week: 191.4
Progress: Down 2.4
Starting Weight: 270.2
Total Weight Loss: 81.2

Just a quicky tonight. I made it to a meeting tonight and was pleasantly surprised to see I lost what I had gained last week. I will stay with my points this week and not mess with anything until I lose a few more pounds. I want to be comfortably away from that 190 mark before trying to figure out the maintenance thing.

Tonight's meeting was about dining out. Do you eat out for convenience or for special occasions? During the meeting, we discussed if going out for convenience, you should only eat as many points as you would for a normal meal. If going out for a special occasion, then a little indulgence may be in order. We rarely go out to eat with 3 small kids, but when we do it is usually for a special treat that is planned days in advance. The only time we do convenience is a quick walk to Subway or McDonald's and when that happens, I make sure I am staying true to my normal dinner points.

You must have handled being stuck at home by the snow pretty well. That is an invitation to eat for many people. Good job on that continued weight loss!

I know what you mean about going out. It really is a treat to be enjoyed around here too!

You are doing so great with your losses. Keep plugging away.

Great job with another loss! Nothing wrong with giving yourself a little "cushion" under that goal weight.
