Thursday was quite hectic and I didn't really eat a full meal until dinner at Buca de Beppo where I went way over points. It was so yummy though! I didn't stuff my face, but I did eat a little bit of everything which left my tummy hurting by the end of the night. I also had cookie cake. Hey it was to celebrate my roomate's birthday ;)

On Friday I went to the gym like I do every week and one of my friends was there. I new she did weight watchers, but we had never talked about it. She asked me how much weight I had lost because she could tell I had lost some. I told her about 15 lbs. I then told her I was doing WW but not going to the meetings. She said that every Tuesday her and her roomate have a meeting in their apartment because she goes to the meetings, but her roomate doesn't. She invited me to come! How awesome is that????? Also while we were talking, the girl on the elliptical next to me asked us if we were talking about WW? I told her we were. She said she lost 80 lbs!!!! Oh my gosh I would have never guests by looking at her. I worked on the elliptical for 1 hour and then I did weights with my friend!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, I have started weight training. I am sore today, but I am so happy I started doing this!!!

Yesterday, I tried on a skirt I love and it was way too big!!!! I am using that as a gauge for my weight loss. I went to taget yesterday. I have never bought something that didn't fit in hope of losing weight to fit into it, but I did yesterday. The XL top fits, but the size 16 skirt will take a couple months to get into it. The outfit is gorgeous and I new I had to have it. They had like 4 skirts left and they actually had a 16. So my goal is to be in it by end of the summer or at least close to being able to fit into it. I'll post pictures when I do!

Ok, time for lunch!

I went to the gym for 1 hour and 30 minutes today. I did 30 mintutes on the elliptical and 1 hour on the treadmill. Man did it feel good! So I had a decent lunch. A smart one fajita thing and some baked dorritos. At 5 I had to go to this convo event for school where the first lady of TN spoke. Of course there was food, but I felt I made some wise chocies considering all that I could have had.

Now that I am watching what I eat I also watch what other people eat. I can't believe I ever ate like I once did. I still eat food that isn't the best for me, but I eat it in moderation. There was one lady in particular who kept going back for more deserts. They were good, but not that good.

Even though I had all that I still had some soup when I got back. I am pretty confident I didn't go over my points, but I did write it all down.

About 6 more pounds I will weigh what I weighed when I returned from Europe. Yesterday I worked out at the gym for and hour and a half. 25 minutes on the elliptical and 1 hour 5 minutes on the treadmill. I saw my friend that I made last week too. After, the workout I decided to go get some lunch on campus. They have a pizza, burger, and mexican place. Sometimes I will get the grilled chicken, but usually I get a taco salad without the shell. It is so hard for them to understand that I don't want the shell. The salad with gucamole and sour cream is soooo worth the splurge after a workout. Just a little cheese and a little chicken yum! Of course I saw my crush and I looked like shit. Oh well. I am over it. At least he knows I work out. I made a grilled cheese sandwhich and tomato soup for dinner. I really need to find some lower point bread. I HAVE to use butter, well at least for right now. I also used really cheese so it was a 5 point sandwhich, but it was so yummy! I made a can of soup, but I only ate half of it. I was too full! Night time os definitly hard for me. I just want to snack, snack, snack. So to curb my cravings a little, I had some jello. It's funny. My roomate saw my jello and thought it looked good so she went and bought some too except she didn't get the sugar free kind. The regular has way too many calories.

One of my roomates goes to curves. She wanted me to come with her, but I can't tonight because I have class. It is only $30 a month and it might be a good addition to my cardio workout at school. Also, I want to start weight training. I do not want too much flab!

So I got up early got a shower and ate the other half of my club sandwhich for breakfast. Probably not the best thing, but oh well I wanted it. For lunch had Ravioli and Veggies. I went to the gym around 5 and did 45 minutes on the elliptical while listening to Stroke 9 and Maroon 5. After I went and got dinner with my roomie and one of our friends. Usually I get a taco salad without the shell, but the mexican place was closed so I got 2 pieces of pizza. My stomach was not happy with that decision. So I took some pepto. Now I have been drinking a ton of water and watching the Grammy's. Nothing too exciting now it is time to do the homework I still didn't do today.
