Looking Great in 2008 Weigh-in #3 (#1 for me)

OK I joined the "Look Great in 2008" challenge on October 3rd but had started my weight loss journey on September 3rd. My initial goal was to lose 86 pounds-WOW that's a whole person-well a kid anyway. As of October 3rd I had lost 8 pounds in about 5 weeks. Not bad but after losing 6 pounds the very first week I was really hoping for at least 2-3 pounds a week.

Anyway, this morning I got on the scale...and I've lost 5 pounds this past week!! I have really been watching what I eat, trying to add fruits and veggies-still not a big variety of either but at least I am eating them. Funny thing is I have eaten out 4 times this last week. Went to a pizza buffet twice-but only ate one slice of pizza at one visit and none at the second. Went to Applebee's twice-got what I thought was a good meal, but looked it up when I got home to find it was a 1000 calorie meal!! YIKES! Still only had 2k calories that day. But did much better the second visit to Applebee's and chose something off the WW menu.




So I feel much better this week. Hopefully I'll be able to fit in some of my old jeans soon.

Congrats! That is an awesome loss. You are now officially my hero...you came in contact with a pizza buffet, and only ate one piece! Way to go! I like some of the stuff they have on the WW menu at Applebee's. It makes it easier to eat out. Good luck this week!

Congratulations on choosing more wisely the second time at Applebee's. Isn't it crazy how things that "seem" healthy, can actually be unhealthy.

WOW Congrats on your weight loss! Dining out is a huge challenge for me and I've actually started visiting websites of restaurants I'm likely to visit and making a list of good healthy choices in a small note book so when I'm at that restaurant instead of looking at the tempting menu, I refer to my "menu" and make a choice from there.
