Weigh in Saturday!

So it seems that since I started working I often don't have enough time to weigh in on Friday mornings but if I don't I will get it in on Saturday.  Today I got to see great success vs last week.  I weighed in at 255.5lbs.  I have admit for a minute I was disappointed because I weighed in at 256lbs on about Tuesday so the loss did not seem as huge to me until I went back to my weigh in page to put it in a realized that I loss 2.9lbs in a week.  Funny how quickly your perspective can change.  

Today should be a nice day, my progress reports that are due Monday are already done and my sister and brother in law are in town visiting.  I am going to take a quick trip into town to do some shopping for a bday present for my SIL, and to order a few bathing suits from Sears since I don't think I'll find a good one on the rack anywhere in my little town.  And I may just treat myself to one pair of pants that fit properly, I know that big pile of regular 18s will fit in just a few more pounds but I desperately want a pair of jeans that fit right now and right now a 18 plus fits that and that my friends is so exciting. 

I finally received a bunch of wedding pictures yesterday from the photographer ( I waited for ever to order them, like 2 years. lol) and they are gorgeous.  I can't believe that I already weigh less they I did in those pictures. On my wedding day I weighed approx. 265 and I say approx because I stopped weighing myself when my diet failed, and of course it did it was a diet.  They are the most beautiful pictures and it was the best day of my life thus far.   

Alright, well I am off to enjoy the day!

I just can't believe how hard old habits are to break.  With all the progress I have made I still end up slipping into my old habits of eating out for lunch, running through the Tim Horton's drivethru and stealing a can of Coke out of my friends office fridge.  I really need to get these under control.  They are completely sabotaging my progress.  They are sneaking in and eating up my calorie deficits.  So over the next few weeks I will work at eliminating these 3 nasty work habits.   First to go, "stealing" Coke out my friends fridge.  When I do this I am just looking for something to drink.  I need to remember to pack my water bottle and keep it full.  Second, Tim Horton's is costly me dearly. did you now that my beloved double double packs a whooping 230 calories, add to that the donut I can't live without at 260 calories and my morning coffee run is costing me big time! Lastly, eating out for lunch hasn't been too bad, I typically run to the grocery store for a salad but that is hurting my wallet when I consider what I can make a salad for at home.  Also, it's hard to control how much of what is in them and many of them have lots of cheese.  

So that's it, I need to nix those 3 habbits ASAP!  And I know I can I just need to rework my routine a little so that these choices are less tempting.
