4.8

That's how much weight I've lost since December 1st

4.8 lbs.  (2.2 kg.).

1.6 lbs. (.7 kg.) for the month of January.

I now weigh 176.8 lbs. (80.2 kg.).

Also my jeans are falling off my ass today.  I need to take this pair out of my rotation, but I like them so much!  They are a size 14 and I am in a size 12, but I've kept wearing them because #1) I only have two pairs of pants right now and #2) they have really cute pockets on the fanny.

I will soon need to do some shopping.  Very soon.  It is looking like size 12 may be it for me. 

I was thinking today that I am a little compulsive.  For example I always eat the same lunch on Wednesdays.  I go to Café Yumm! and get a small original Yumm! bowl which is brown rice, black beans, Yumm! sauce, salsa, sour cream, avocado, cilantro and tomatoes.  I also get a bag of Kettle Chips and eat half of it.  My lunch has 525 calories and only 9 grams of protein so Wednesdays are a high calorie day for me, but I don't care.  It is a delicious lunch.  I even sometimes have to eat it in shifts to get it all in.  Sometimes I have to walk around to make more room.  This is the only food I ever do that with. 

I used to be really compulsive about food.  From reading the previous paragraph you might decide I still am, but in general these days I try to use my compulsiveness for good instead of evil.

Happy Wednesday!

Nothing wrong with being a little compulsive! lol
So long as you enjoy the food and it's once in a while then go for it! ENJOY!!!

I give ya props for moving that compulsion down to 1 meal 1 day a week! and that sounds so yummy btw.

Yes, that's great - only one meal a week with high calories !! - you need the treat to keep you going - after all, none of us are perfect and it obviously agrees with you since you are loosing at a good rate ! Way to go!

Is that how many calories that bad boy has? I had 1/2 of a yumm bowl yesterday. I am allergic to the avacado so threw it in thegarbage. then I ate 1/2 of what was left. I then chased it with 1/2 a cookie (i like the sweet more than the chips :0)...

maybe that is why i put on weight!! :)

xxxooo

I hate it when I have to retire a pair of jeans! (but it is okay when it is for a smaller size) I've been pulling mine up all day, lol
Great job!

Go shopping. It's fun. Except if it involves a new Bra.

Have you considered taking the jeans to a tailor/alterations? I've had a favorite pair altered twice as I shrunk from a 20 to a 16. It only cost about $10-$15 which is much cheaper than a new pair. My tailor says that 2 sizes is about the limit for jeans in order to keep their original shape & proportions.

Woohoo for size 12!! :) Super jealous!
