Day 42 - 48, New Year

Week 7  and I was down another 1.2 lbs...total loss so far is 14 lbs. I am 9 lbs away from 10%. That's exciting :)

I've been doing ok. Weekends have become a challenge for me - I'm staying within my points (DP and WP) but eating crappy food on the weekends and it needs to stop. I'm all about having a treat if I really want it, or enjoying a decadent food just because it tastes good, but this is just mindless eating because I can't be bothered to cook. The food is crappy in nutrition and satisfaction - it's just blah! This weekend I'm going to break the cycle.

Valentine's Day came and went, and it was my first Valentine's Day as a single person since I was 13! The day didn't suck as much as I thought it would, to be honest.  I've gone through all the firsts now - first anniversary, first birthday, first Christmas, first Valentine's......it can only get easier right? That's my hope anyway :) I think the next "hard" thing will be the boys' birthdays and Liam's is in a few weeks.

It's a long weekend here in Ontario (for most of us) and I am looking forward to three days away from work.


  1. Yay for long weekends!
    And yeah for breaking the cycle!
    Even good to notice it!
    Awesome, actually!

  2. Good job coping with the first single Valentines without turning to food. Impressive. Congrats on almost being at 10% too!!!

  3. 14 lbs is fantastic, girl!!! I am proud of you!

  4. Great work on the loss! To prevent just grabbing food I cook extra on the weekend so as soon as I get home I just have to grab it out of the freezer and reheat it. May be an idea for you.

    Have a great long weekend!

  5. WOOHOO! Congrats on the loss! You'll be at 10% in no time. :)

    Glad you made it through Valentine's--it can be tough!
