*sigh of relief* I am back down to 157.6, which is a new low! TOM is long gone, the steak is long gone, and now I can get a weighin that I am actually happy with. I was nervous too because my boyfriend's parents took us out to dinner on Saturday as well, but we went to a restaurant that only serves grilled food, so I had some delicious grilled chicken and veggies, and I can see the scale was not affected.
Its kind of sad that I feel a lot better now that I am finally down again. I dont want the scale to control the way I feel, but I cant help that I feel better now that Im not stuck at the same weight for weeks and weeks. It just feels nice that for once, my hard work IS paying off.
Got a nice compliment from the president of my company today..said he heard I was doing really well on the huge project I have, gave me a "high five" (tacky, yes), and said thanks for doing a great job. So that made me happy that my hard work is obviously being recognized. Now I just need a big fat raise and we are good to go... :)
