Week 5 weigh in ~ Not great...but I'll take it!

I went to WW a little reluctantly tonight. I had done pretty well most of the week, until Thursday, when my daughter, Jessica and my grandson, CJ came to town from Rapid City, SD. I asked CJ on the phone what he wanted for supper when he got there, and he answered, "Pizza". I don't get to spoil my grandkids very often, so I stopped at "Mama Vee's Take and Bake" and picked up a couple large ones. They were very good, and I only had 2 slices, but I also had some of the "supreme nachos" that came free with the special.

Then, on Saturday night, we went to a Cinco de Mayo fiesta at my brother, "Roberto" and his wife, "Rosa's" casa. The food was delicioso, but I ate too mucho! I never took Spanish, (and I'm pretty sure that is not correct Spanish)...but you get the idea. Sunday, we did our usual Chinese for lunch, and that's not normally a problem, but then we went to my parent's house for supper. Mom made goulash. You know, one of those "comfort foods", that we probably ate at least once a week when I was growing up with my 9 siblings. She did make brussel sprouts too...which have 0 points...as long as you don't load them down with real butter...oh well. They sure tasted good.

Anyway, I lost .8 lbs this week. Nothing to write home about, but at least it wasn't a gain, and it makes my total weight loss 14.2 lbs. I just have to keep telling myself that that is an average 2.84 lbs per week so far. That's still not too bad if I can keep it up.

Last week, I threatened to dust off my tread mill...and I did dust it off! Maybe this week, I'll actually get on it and turn the thing on! Maybe I'll even walk a few miles, what do you think? It's such a crazy idea, it just might work?! I'll let ya know next week.

You are doing great, Jeannie!! I am so happy for you...yepper, get on that treadmill! You will feel so great after you do it...getting on there is the hard part. Once you start, you won't wanna stop!

Congrats again!

I'm pretty much scaring myself into joining WW soon. I am watching the scale tip toward a number that frightens the day lights out of me! I even gave up my coffee yesterday! (however, I had to drink it today since it keeps me regular)
See you on Friday for Ladies Night out?
