Good things

Hello everyone, I must be doing something right because the scale was down to 140.5 this morning!!! I feel good and super encouraged to keep it up and stay on track. Yesterday I went to the mall and I found a cute sweater and fleece at Old Navy which surprised me because I haven't found anything there in forever. Even better news is that I didn't hate the way I looked in the dressing room mirror. :)

It's amazing what can happen when I just stick to what I know works. For me that includes drinking very little, this weekend I had one beer on Saturday, last weekend I had 1 glass of wine with dinner and the  weekend before that I didn't drink at all. And for the past month hubby and I have been good about not drinking during the week. I have managed to stay away from the work sweets, and if I ate any snacky carbs I counted them out....55 goldfish crackers is a satisfying amount of crackers. I have been getting whole grain carbs in with the ezekiel bread and lots of veggies. I have also been drinking lots of the celestial seasoning holiday teas with whipped cream.

Next on our agenda is hosting Thanksgiving. I feel good about that because I think it will be easier to sneak belly friendly options in along with the usual sugary carby fare. Have a great night :)
