Healthy You Challenge Week 25

I cant believe another week has flown by and it is time for the Challenge.

Since I was up 10 pounds last week, I didnt record a weight since it was swelling. I dont have anything to compare my weight too, but right now Im ok with where its at. I am a little nervous because tomorrow my grandparents are taking me out for a belated birthday dinner and Ive checked the menu and there is little for me to go with. Knowing my grandparents too, they are both obese and enjoy food and are the biggest "food pushers" I know. I know that no matter what I decide, they will keep asking me if I want MORE MORE MORE. Last year they got me a cake "all to myself" (as if that is what I wanted). So I plan to do my best tomorrow with what the restaurant offers, and we will see on Friday if I am up, down, or the same. Im hoping for down!

I got in 3 days of exercise this week which is much better than the day I got in last week. It feels good to be back in the habit again.

I had some NSVs at the grad party I went to on Saturday. Some of my boyfriend's family havent seen me in a while, so I received several comments on my weight loss which made me feel good. Especially since this one guy was there who we camp with every year, and he didnt know who I was at first! True, that when we camp I rarely have makeup on and my hair done, but almost 50 pounds lighter and with a haircut, I could see why he would think I was a new girlfriend. I guess at times I feel like I am.

Way to go! If a friend of my man thought I was a new gf, I would be doing backflips!

I'm just amazed by how much that sunburn/swelling got to you in weight.

So glad that you're better and I hope that you can find something to enjoy for your b'day dinner!

Have a terrific night!

Happy Belated Birthday!! Enjoy your dinner!! Its one thing when we notice our changes, but so much more gratifying when others notice. Awesome job!!

Congrats on the NSVs. That's my goal for the next time my boyfriend's friends and family see me when we next return to the US, to not recognise me at all. So I'm really happy for you and living vicariously!

Good luck with the grandparents. I know it can be tough with family food pushers. It's also frustrating and hard not to get annoyed but we know you will do the best you can so try to enjoy the day and have a good belated birthday.

Wow, I really had no idea that a sunburn could make you gain so much, hey that'll keep me in!!

Happy late birthday and how cool that others are noticing all your hard work!

He he, I can't wait for that day when people look at me twice to recognize me :-) Godd job! As for the dinner, I hope you find something not too fatty, and if not, try only eating half your portion or something. Good luck!
