12.11.08 - Thursday, almost didn't make it!

Weather is icky right now... raining, raining, raining. It is supposed to get pretty cold overnight and I hope that rain doesn't get wintery-mix on us. I could do with no ICE!

I had my first weigh-in tonight. I didn't really officially start the program until Monday morning, though I tried to eat better with what I had on hand over the weekend. TaDa moment - I lost 5 lbs! Just many more to go! :)

I will set my goal according to the guidelines, after I reach my first 10% milestone. I think that might be a bit early in my journey because even when that 10% is reached, I'll still have 75 or more lbs to go. But, I'm getting ahead of myself.

I basked in the 5 lb loss with a bottle of water, a turkey sandwich and a Diet Coke. I also restocked some things at the grocery store. I plan to keep on track.

We have our office holiday party tomorrow, but I don't intend to stay long and I will be bringing my own lunch! :)

I swatched for a lacy sweater for my mom, which I will start next weekend... it'll be my first of 12 (hahahahah) sweaters for 2009 and my first Winter Lace project for Seasons of Lace, winter edition! A two-fer!

Congrats on the loss - what a pleasant surprise that must have been! Sounds like you're on your way - also that you are clearing away your New Year's resolutions early :)

Bravo! Don't forget www.sparkpeople.com for some good support, too. And www.sparkrecipes.com has great recipes for weight. Not that I have succeeded much. Ok, not at all. Color me undedicated!
