Oh how I have missed you!

What have I missed you may ask?? What is it???

THE 160s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE ARRIVED!!!!!!!

This morning on my scale I was down 2.6 from last week and my weight was 169.3!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! I have been floating on air ALL DAY LONG!!! I'm so excited. This puts me with 3.3# to go before I get to the pre-pregnancy weight of 166. I am so freaking stoked, you have no idea! Tonight at my WI, I was down 1.8 for a grand total of 12# since going back to WW 3 weeks ago! On my scale, I've lost 8.6# in those 3 weeks so to say I am excited/thrilled/ecstatic is an understatement. I was really worried about this week too. This past weekend was not good, BUT I wrote it all down, accepted how many points I had went over and then paid back my flex points before today too. I only got in 1 day of exercise this week too :( I wanted to get in more but my body needs sleep in order to exercise and I didn't have much of it over the weekend so I think I've been making up for it this week. I hope to get in more days this week so we'll see how it goes. DH is leaving Friday night to go to his mom's for the weekend to take care of life insurance stuff with his mom--he may not be home until Sunday! I am going to be alone with the boys Friday AND Saturday. That should be interesting! As long as we all have all body parts intact when he returns, I will consider it a success! I may have some more gray hair that I just had covered but oh well. :)

I have 2 pairs of Gap Long and Lean Jeans in a size 12. Pair A fits me great, even falls off of my backside after a few hours (hello? what happened to my butt?!?!) and I love them. Pair B on the other hand is a totally different story. I tried to wear them today and they were pushing on my stomach so bad b/c they were tight it was insane! But again, they fell off of my butt! WTH?!? I guess Pair A was tagged wrong or something but darnit those are my FAVORITE jeans!!! I even love Pair B but it irritates me so much that they don't fit as well as pair A. UGH!!! I need to go shopping for some new pants but I am waiting to drop a few more pounds.

I have been diet coke/soda free for 153 days now! Five whole months without anything but water and the occassional sweet tea. {Pats self on back} :)

Tonight at the meeting, the topic was eating at social events--weddings, baby showers, 4th of July, Memorial Day, etc... The leader said something that really spoke to me--Don't focus on the food, focus on the EVENT. Wow. How brilliant is that? I love it and am really going to try to put it to use this upcoming 'event' season. Mine starts with my boys' birthday party. Izaac will be 1 in 3 weeks! How crazy is that?!?!

I am signing off now. I am getting up to work super early tomorrow (like 5 a.m.) so I can be done by 7 and hopefully before the boys wake up. Have a great OP weekend!

YAY!!! What a great feeling! Congrats on your awesome work. I was home alone with the two kids for a long three day weekend in Feb. and nearly lost my mind. GOOD LUCK!

Congrats on both the loss and breaking the soda habit.
I cannot believe he is almost 1, it still feels like you just had him!
