Week 12 Weigh In ~ 25 lbs Off!! WooHoo!

I can't believe I haven't posted in an entire week! I guess I haven't done anything exciting enough to post about lately. However, I am pretty excited about losing another 2.6 lbs, for a total of 25.4 lbs to be exact, which leaves just another .6 lbs to go before I get to my target weight, and earn my bronze key chain. I did get a "25 lb weight" charm to go on it tonight. Of course, being my ADD self, I managed to lose that too before I got out of the building ...but I went back there and it had been found. I'll try to hang on to it 'til I get the key chain.

I'm going to try to be really "good" the next 4 days, maybe try to go for a walk at least once a day, and write down everything I eat. The challenges will come with the weekend because first of all, we are going camping with a group from our church, and then on Sunday afternoon, a "surprise" party is planned to celebrate my big 5-0! Don't worry guys, I'll act surprised when I walk in and you all yell "SURPRISE!". No - no one let the cat out of the bag...remember, I was the one that suggested the time and place for the party in the first place, because of everything else going on...and I knew my family wouldn't let me get away without a party. And I really do love that about all of them.

My plan is to weigh in next Monday, which is my actual birthday, (and If I play my cards right), I should still have a total of at least 26 lbs off by then and will have reached my first short term goal, which was to reach my target weight by my birthday. After weigh-in, we'll probably find someplace to go for a free birthday meal. We generally go to the supper club here in town for our birthday dinners...but unfortunately, they're closed on Mondays and if your birthday is on a Monday...well, you're just out of luck that year!

Hopefully, I'll keep busy enough with organizing and packing things for camping this week, that I won't have time to think about eating much.

Congratulations!!! I'm trying hard, but my scale broke, lol. I have no idea where I am at, really.
Have fun camping and at your "surprise" party! Who knows, maybe they will find a way to surprise you besides saying surprise.

Oh Jeannie, that is Fantastic!! I am so happy for you! You rock, dude! Isn't it seeming a bit easier than you imagined before starting? Keep up the good work!

Have a fun time camping. I am not sure if we will make it up there Sat. night, or not...are you doing Karaoke up there?

Have fun at the surprise party! I hope you have a blast! :)

So, did "R" spill the beans, or did you just confront the issue?
