Weighin' in

I'm not going to mince words; this was a good week! I am down six pounds from the last weigh-in. Going off of the protein shake was definitely the right decision. Of course, now, I keep wondering just how much I would have lost had I never used the stuff as a meal replacement. My leg is finally feeling better, too. That makes it possible to exercise again.

The best part about this week was a breakthrough in the head. When I start to go for the "bad" stuff, I ask myself which is more important: Temporary satisfaction of the taste buds or having a life (hopefully)? Perhaps having a life is a bit more important. Let's hope this, "Look at me, and I am losing weight," thing keeps up. This is making me really excited to go away, since I tend to treat myself much better when I am not living at home.

Thank you gentlemen! Today, I was able to put on a pair of jeans that had no stretch in them whatsoever. They were just plain jeans that I have been trying to get on for the past two months. I've gone from not being able to get the button within 2-3 inches of buttoning to buttoning with almost no problem today. YAY!!!!!!

And yes, it is really bothering me that I didn't put a comma after you and before gentlemen. I'm sure I missed some commas in this comment, too. Grrrrr!
