That's a load off my back.

50 POUNDS! I've lost exactly 50 pounds since starting on this journey 1 week shy of 1 year ago. I got a shiny charm to add to my weight watchers keychain. I love the little symbols of my accomplishment. That means 38.8 pounds to go. Wow, less than 40 pounds left to lose. Kinda amazing. I'm still getting used to being under 200. I made a goal to get to 179 by the time the The Biggest Loser ends, which I think is around March 11. About a month from now, so about 1 pound a week. I think I can do that. Heck, I can do better than that...I'm pretty sure I can do that

I'm Sick

Yeah, got some sort of cold thing. Last week it was all sore throat and stuffy nose. This week it morphed into a serious cough. So I'm taking a few days off of the gym. I was supposed to go Wed and Fri of this week. I didn't go yesterday (Wed) and we'll see if I go tomorrow. I think I need some rest. I don't want this being sick to drag on for weeks. Anyway, I went twice to the gym this week so that'll probably be it. Back on track next week I hope.

I was craving carbs last night, I ended up eating Reduced Guilt Pita Chips from Trader Joe's with Hummus for dinner. Not exactly a balanced meal. Anyway, it was good and I was asleep by 8:30. I weigh-in tonight. We'll see....
