20 for 20?!?

Bruslení v Rize

That’s how I felt when I weighed in this morning.  I was pissed about gaining 2 lb. last week, and then Tuesday I got hit by the Strep Truck and couldn’t eat anything.  Wednesday, I felt well enough to eat almost as many points/calories as I normally would, and by Thursday I was back to work (catered Italian lunch), and last night was my company holiday party (open bar & buffet dinner).  The kids slept over my parents house, so after the party, we went to a late showing of Harry Potter 7 (part 1), which was WICKED awesome!  And anyone who knows me knows this:  I don’t go to the movies without eating movie popcorn.  I don’t add butter-flavored topping anymore (and anyone who calls it butter is only fooling themselves), but I have to have it.  So I ate rich foods, then I ate salty & late.  Not usually great things to do the night before a WI.

So I got on the scale a little nervously today.  I shouldn’t have worried.  I lost 5.5 pounds (!) this week, which by itself is enough to make me happy, but to make me even happier, it brings my total lost so far to TWENTY (20) pounds towards my 20-year HS reunion goal.  Hence, the 20-for-20 title.  A little play on words with my 30-for-30 challenge.  It also drops me another BMI point lower, which also makes me happy.

Like ice-skating, which also makes me happy, and I got to do today for the first time in about 2 years.  Even though my skates were VERY cold (makes them hard and a little uncomfortable), Veronica’s skating lesson had “friends & family skate” for the 2nd half of the lesson, so I laced up and experienced about 25 minutes of pure joy.  Even with cold stiff feet.

So there it is.  I’m a pretty happy camper today.  20 lb. down, 34 to go.

p.s.  I also went to a WW meeting this week, to check out the changes they’re making to their plan for 2011.  For any WW friends who’ve been to a meeting, I’d love to hear what you think of the changes, and whether you’re going to try them, or stick with the old way.  I’m on the fence between staying with what works, or adapting, and giving the updates a chance.
