Yesterday's weigh in and adventures in shopping

Yesterday's meeting was good and bad. 

I will start with the bad. I was up 8 tenths of a pound, but I will blame my dress. I wasn't wearing my usual light weigh in dress. I will also blame the tub of buttered movie popcorn I ate on Sunday with peanut M&Ms. I think my biggest mistake and what I can blame the most, is that I ate when I wasn't hungry on Friday. I ate when I felt full, even. Why I did that? I'm not sure, but it is a mistake I paid for by not losing anything last week. I won't beat myself up too much, though. Often times after a big loss like I had last week, I will not lose and sometimes gain the following week. It usually isn't a significant gain, like yesterdays, so I'm not sweating it.

Now...time for the good. Yesterday our leader told us that if we are repeat WW members, who have a different original start weigh in total than what is currently on our cards, we can reset our start weights. Well, after resetting my start weight to what it was when I joined in 2005, I was thrilled to realize I have lost 65 pounds!

Now for another big thrill I got. I went shopping Friday at Kohls for some work clothes. That was not the thrill, trust me, I don't like to shop for square clothes. Since almost everything I have purchased in the last few years has been vintage or custom made, I couldn't believe it when I tried on a skirt in a size 12 and it fit!  I know sizes may have changed in the last 20 years, but I honestly haven't put on anything in a size 12 since 1986. 

Now for a little treaty tip:

2 point bagel and cream cheese...perfect breakfast or morning snack!

Wow, a 65 lb total loss is amazing! I am so proud of you, especially since you quit smoking on TOP of your weight loss.
