Weigh in, the Bahamas, menu planning...

Went to my meeting Thursday night. I wasn't real sure about this WI b/c I hadn't exercised as much as I would have liked to the past week. I got in 4 days but the week before I had gotten in 5 days and some of those days had two-a-days in them. My scaled had only shown a .3 loss for the week, which BTW, is/was fine with me--at least it's down! Well, when I got to my meeting I was pleasantly surprised--DOWN 1.6 for a total of 10.2 in 2 weeks! HOLY COW!!! I was so thrilled!!!

I am going to have to be really diligent the rest of this week however. I am out of flex points and this is the first time I've had that happen since I've been back to WW. Actually, I went over my FP already this week. I had a Pampered Chef Party Friday night, ate out Thursday night after my meeting with some friends, then went out Saturday night with friends. It's been a crazy eating out weekend! I plan to get in some kind of exercise at least 4 out of the next 5 days. I really do like getting up early in the morning to get it done, I just need to go to bed earlier. :) I am .5 away from what I was on my scale back in December. I would like to at least lose that this week. I have my menu planned for the week so I shouldn't have any surprises.

Speaking of menus, I have been planning them out a month at a time and it's worked out SO WELL!!! We have our favorite meals that we rotate and we are also trying new things. It takes out so much stress from the hours of 5-7 every night. I highly recommend planning out your menus. When I think of something that sounds good that I want to have for dinner, I jot it down and put it in the menu at some point. It makes my grocery shopping easier since the meals are already planned! I have found another site that does a WW recipes. I've made a few from there and been happy with the results. You can see the site by clicking here.

DH and I booked a trip to the Bahamas at the end of May! WOO HOO!!! It will be just me and him for 6 wonderful, long, glorious days! Can you tell I am a wee bit excited about this trip? DH even asked me "what are we going to do for 6 days without the boys?" My reply was "SLEEP! A LOT!!!!" Oh gosh I can't wait to go on that trip. We've never been to the Bahamas so we are completely stoked about going. I realize I won't be bathing suit ready but darn it I am goign to try my hardest to look decent by then. I have a little less than 2 months at this point. I am so psyched!

I think that's it for me for now. My comments somehow got shut off on my last 2 posts. I have no idea how that happened but I have fixed it. Leave all the comments you want! Have a wonderful OP rest of your weekend!

Wow, sounds like getting back to WW was exactly what you needed. I should be following in your footsteps!
The Bahamas!!! I am jealous! I just got back from Florida, but had Strep Throat. Blah!
Congrats on the Losses and keep it up!
