Looking Great in 2008 Week 25

Time for the Tales from the Scales challenge!

I am happy to report that I am down .8 from Monday, leaving me at 170.4. I cant believe that only .5 is standing between me and the 60s! Since last weeks Looking Great in 2008 weighin, I am down a pound! that is great considering last week was just a maintenance.

And, since this may be the last week of the challenge, I am happy to report that as of the first week on the challenge (Sept 27), I have lost 25 pounds! This challenge has been fabulous and I have loved the support of everyone involved. I was even featured as the Friday's loser one week!

TOM started and I have had major cravings all week. It doesnt help that we have had some training courses going on all week for some big shot managers flown in, and they have had catered food and fast food brought in daily. Monday there were dunkin donuts and pastries, Tuesday was pizza, today was panera bread. So there have been major temptations shoved in my face and I think I have done pretty well. I did have one of those teeny tiny corner pieces that comes on a pizza because pizza is one of my biggest temptations and I wanted to have that taste in my mouth. So I had the tiny piece and ate the rest of my lunch while everyone else at pizza. I think that is pretty good, especially since I am still down today.

Hoping to be in the 60s next week!

good luck with getting into the next set of numbers--i know how exciting that is.

also, good for you for having even a small piece of pizza. you count it into your whole day and it won't hurt you!

different story if you follow it with another, then another... :)

Congrats on the 25 lb loss during the challenge! That's wonderful progress!

It sounds like you handled the pizza temptation very well. That took self control - good for you.
