Remember that show? Well, this post has nothing to do with that show!
But when I stepped on the scale this morning, behold, I saw the little needle pointing to that magic number – 222lbs!
33 lbs less than when I started this journey. Needless to say I am ecstatic… but also let it be said that for the past several weeks, it’s been teetering between 228 and 225 or so.
It averages out to about a pound a month since December 2007, so nothing miraculous here, but most of it has been lost this year. And it’s really all just eating less. Of the stuff I really like… Oh, I eat pizza – but instead of 2 or 3 slices, I eat one. Yesterday I had only half my sandwich (we made paninis – yummy!) because I was full!
So I saved the other half for later. I still have ice cream (my downfall) a couple of times a week – not a huge helping, but anywhere from 1/2 cup to a cup. Not bad. No toturous routine of Lean Cuisine or Nutrisystems meals, and while I do eat salad several times a week, it’s not my main staple.
Ok, this is getting boring – just wanted to check in with you and let you know… 220 is right around the corner. And then my goal of 200 will (almost) be in view.
