Pleasantly Surprised

Just weighed in at 156.4 - a new low! Boy I am surprised! Usually I am up on Mondays, and I especially thought I would be up since I was lacking in the exercise department all last week. So today is a happy day!

Its also a happy day because today is the first day in over a week that I have felt back to normal with no more flu symptoms. I still have a lingering cough, but at least I can function normally throughout the day.

I was worried on Friday that I would have to end the month with a small loss, but now I can really claim a much larger loss for March - down 1.8! That is pretty fantastic for me, since last month I didnt lose anything. I cant wait to do measurements later on this week, since I dont have much time right now. I am hoping I see some results there as well. Let's hope this is a good sign that things are finally moving again and moving in the right direction.

Wednesday I will be going to a hockey game, so I plan on trying to find something healthy to eat there which will be challenging. I will be going right from work, or I would try to eat something beforehand, but Im sure I can make do. I just dont want to lose this gain due to eating something stupid, so I will have to do my best.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I have that cough too that is still lingering. Congrats on the new low and have fun at the hockey game.

Woot, grats on the new low. Hmm..I've never been to a hockey game, but if they are anything like baseball games, it's definitely difficult trying to find something healthy to eat.

Glad to hear you're feeling better, and of course very excited about the new low :-)
I really admire your ability to work around social events and still have a good time without screwing up your eating. For me, this has been my second greatest challenge so far, second only to my emotional over-eating. Have fun at the hockey game!

Yay! Congrats on the loss! Seems your body likes to frustrate you by saving it up sometimes!

So glad you're feeling better! And that the scale went your way this time.

As far as the hockey game, I have to just eat before I go to something like that. Locally, there IS nothing remotely healthy at sporting events. :)
