Week 11 Weigh-in ~ Just keep losing...Just keep losing...

Well, believe it or not, I was actually down 2.8 lbs tonight! I was pretty happy with that, especially after the week I had. As I said in the last post, I had a hot dog on Wed., we had ladies night out at church on Friday, so I had some cake there, since we had a birthday girl there. Saturday night, Ruth and her fiance, Dan took us out for Father's day and I had ice cream. We did our usual Chinese buffet yesterday, and to top it all off I had a pork steak and even a mini cheesecake at our Father's Day pot luck dinner at Mom and Dad's yesterday! Just think what I might have lost if I hadn't "indulged".
That's okay. I have decided that if I'm going to stick it out and lose this weight, and then keep it off, I have to be able to enjoy myself once in awhile. If I feel like I'm depriving myself all the time, I won't be able to keep it up. As long as the numbers on the scale keep going down...I will keep "indulging" now and then.
I've had a couple of non-scale victories this week too! I sat in one of the church nursery's rocking chairs the other day, and noticed that my thighs were no longer touching both chair rails, like they used to! Maybe that's not that exciting to most people, but it was to me. Then on Wednesday, I tried on a pair of size 18 jeans that I had saved from the last time I wore that size...quite a few years ago. I got them zipped...and buttoned. Woohoo! They were a little tight around the waist, but I wore them anyway. Friday night, my friend Sarah brought me another couple of pairs of of them was a size 16! I can get them on too, but they're not exactly comfortable yet. I started out in a tight size 22, and right now I'm wearing a very loose size 20. I really need a size 19 right now. Those new jeans are going to be my inspiration for the next week or two.
I have stated that I would like to be down to my "target weight", (10 % off) by my birthday which is two weeks away. I am within 4 lbs of that goal right now. I can do it. I know I can.

You are so close, I know you can do it!
My "diet and exercise" program has added 10lbs to my frame. Not loving it. I am upping my exercise now.
