I have had a few run-ins with the dark chocolate this week and last. Also, my gym visits haven't been as regular as I would like. This usually occurs when classes start to get busy. I was down to 190 this week. I should be happy with a 1 lb lost conisdering the sheer amount of chocolate and popcorn I ate last week. I also figured out that over the past 7 weeks I have lost 14 lbs. I am just so suprised. When I really think about that, it is amazing. I just hope I can keep up some sort of loss no matter how small until the end of the summer.

It's hard to believe how far I have come. I almost don't believe it myself. I am not the best at editing pictures. A friend sent me the picture on the left taken at Shoreline in 2003. The picture on the right was taken on 7/4/2006. Posted by Picasa

Things have been going pretty well with this new eating plan. I have been able to cut out breads and processed snacks. I did have one white chocolate cranberry cookie this week, but it was only one! I would normally toss back 3-5 just because they are so good. I have also experienced what I envision hell possibly being like. It occured at Logan's on Monday. Everyone ordered their carbolicous lunches and then the warm buttered rolls were brought out. The table was crowded and since I wasn't eating them they asked if they could put them in from of me. Gah! Also, peanuts galore on the table and peanuts are a no go for me. I did however enjoy my salmon and broccoli. I had a slight freak out on Thursday night due to questions about future living situations AND the homework I had put off doing. I ate way too much dark chocolate. When I woke up I felt like I had been hit by a truck. I also had a felt like the worst hangover ever and I don't get hangovers. Yesterday I had 3 light beers when I went out. Eh, I told myself I was only going to have 2. Technically I only paid for 2. Tonight I am going to go to the grocery store to make sure I have plenty of fresh food for my lunches this week. I do the best when I plan well in adavance.
