Friday Weigh In, 3/16/07

This morning I weighed in at 195.5. That's 17 pounds overall. I'm in a new (old) pair of jeans. My tight jeans are not so tight anymore. And my comfortable jeans are falling down. Suh-weet.

Gotta give a shout out to myself this week for my calm in the face of a food disaster. See, on Wednesday I forgot my lunch at home. I packed it, and I was pretty excited about it. That's what I do now. I get excited about lunch. Anyway, I left it on the dining room table and didn't realize I didn't have it until I was over halfway to the bus stop. If I had gone back to get it, I would have missed the bus and would have had to wait another half an hour. Luckily, I had some money with me, so I figured I could just get something at work. The visions of the yummy illicit lunch I was planning were extremely fun to entertain. Normally I would have treated this as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted, and I was thinking of Au Bon Pain. And not a sensible Au Bon Pain sandwich, either. The good stuff.

But when I got to work, I went to the cafe to see what was available. I was secretly hoping it was all bad and that I would HAVE to eat something bad. But instead, I picked out a turkey, lettuce, and tomato sandwich on wheat bread, some baked Lay's chips, and a Light & Fit peach yogurt. I felt good about it, and I wasn't even sad that I wasn't going to be eating the fun stuff. I found myself actually looking forward to the turkey sandwich. And the yogurt, which I normally don't like. I amazed myself, let me tell ya. I didn't think I had it in me. So, a shout out to me for my diet amazingness. Who knew?

Anyway, have a great weekend, all!!
