Weigh-in & Fun Stuff (for me)

Well peeps, I weighed in at 202.8 yesterday morning.  I was down 0.6 for the week and I lost that 0.6 in the first two days when I reached the "overweight" BMI range.  I hit a bit of a wall on the weekend when I slacked off of tracking.  My sister and I took a little road trip down to the US so that we could shop.  I was looking for a bike and some food items that we don't have here in Canada and stuff that is cheaper despite the fact that our dollars are the same right now!  I generally buy Laughing Cow cheese in all the light flavors.  Here, we have original, light original, and one other regular flavor.  So I stock up.  Cheese is also so much cheaper in general so I buy the grated and freeze it.  Stops me from barreling through a bag too!  And I love flatout bread.  We don't have it AT ALL.  So I had a blast with my sister who was shopping for stuff for her very first apartment.  We had Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch (something we don't have as well).

AND I GOT A BIKE!!!  FUN FUN FUN!!!  Yes, this a picture of my new bike in my living room.  hahaha!  It will be stored in a storage room I have off of my front porch but I have a little rearranging to do in there before I can make that happen so for now, I want to keep my new baby inside.  It's at the back wall of the dining room now, not just hanging out in front of my TV.   I have a $75 gift card leftover from Christmas to Mountain Equipment Co-op so I'm going to get my helmet, lock, and various accessories from there.  Gotta pimp my ride ;)  So excited for all the snow to be gone now!!  I'm also excited to ride my bike to the gym instead of taking my car and fighting for parking.  :)

I went to boot camp tonight and got back to tracking today and it's going well.  I made a yummy random supper that sort of resembled an enchilada?  I combined brown rice, black beans, salsa, sour cream, and shredded cheese and rolled it up in light Italian flatout bread.  Delicious and super filling.  Finished it off with some strawberries and pineapple and I couldn't eat another bite.  

The last fun (for me) thing is that four people today told me that they could tell I'd lost weight.  FOUR PEOPLE!!!  That just spurs me on.  More more more!!!

Have a good week everyone!  

ps.  I so love all the comments and truly appreciate them.  It's so nice to know that I'm not alone and that others are doing it too.  Love you all!

pps.  I secretly hope I can take off 2.8 pounds to get into the one hundred's.  It's a bit much but oh how fabulous that would be!!  Wait, I guess I have to lose 3.0 pounds to actually have the scale start with a 1. Eek.
