Down 28!

Looks like I am on my way to my goal of 25 lbs by the end of March. This week was another 2.6 down ... I need to average 2.5 a week.

On HMR, I did not find myself doing what I needed to do with the meal replacements. Partially due to not ordering shakes/food while I was on vacation ... and partially due to laziness. Not good! I counted calories and kept up with my deficit on my SenseWear, but the idea here is to be on the program.

Next week will be better. I am fully stocked with shakes and hopefully my week will be awesome. January is generally a crappy month ... the majority of tragedy that has touched me personally occurred in January, so it is full of fairly unpleasant anniversaries and just general post holiday malaise. No excuses ... but just the facts.

Tomorrow I am going to Cheesecake Factory for my sisters 25th birthday (she is a tad younger!) Of all places!!!! Did you know that Cheesecake Factory does NOT have a baked potato??? I learned this when I went during a work function while starting HMR. I had my FF sour cream and spray butter loaded! A disappointment. Not sure what I will do tomorrow. I should be bringing my HMR meals, but part of me just wants to nibble at a salad and count calories...again. Good news is that a piece of their cheesecake has 800-1000 calories, so unless that is going to be my entire menu for the day, no cheesecake will cross these lips.

I will just be thinking to myself ... -2.5 a week ... -2.5 a week.... over and over again!

Oh, and I just realized that I am officially 5 lbs lighter than my lowest after my disastrous Lapband surgery. More motivation, right?

Snow peas, broccoli or one of the other veggies might be a good alternative. Have fun at your sister's party.
