Changes

Well the scale was back down and now I am at 167! 7 pounds to lose. Im glad that Wed was kind of a fluke. I still feel very bloated with TOM coming, but glad that it doesnt seem to be affecting the scale much today.

Well I cut off about 5 inches of my hair this afternoon and it is a big change! I was sick of having real long hair and wanted something more modern and stylish. I love it though and am glad I did it! I think for a while too I was afraid to cut my hair short because I thought that with a fat face, it would look horrible and only make it look bigger. I feel more confident now that my double chins are gone.

Well plans for this weekend include staying on plan and getting my exercise in. Easter will have a lot of temptations, but I will just think of getting to my goal and that should keep me in line. Actually Easter is an easier holiday to get through because I find that it isnt as centered around food as xmas or thanksgiving.

Happy Easter everyone!

I'm also eager for some pics! Well done on the loss. I read earlier today that bananas help prevent the bloating associated with PMS, as it contains a lot of potassium.

Excellent loss! You are doing so great. I did the same thing with my hair (I didn't have 5 inches to lose, but did get it cut shorter as I lost weight). I want to see a picture, too! Enjoy your Easter and have a great weekend, Heather.
