Weekly Weigh In

I am down to 191! Ahh yeah! I am sure it would have been a pound or so more had I not had the run in with Mexican food last night. However, I don't know how realistic it would have been...

I was thinking about my Mexican all stuff-my-face- meal last night and thinking back on it, it was almost like an out of body experience. My friends and I made plans to meet up at 6:30 for dinner. Due to a 2 for 1 special, several large parties, and the Monday holiday we waited for close to an hour instead of the 20 minutes we were told. So by the time I sat down I was ravenous. I knew I should not have been eating the chips with the speed which I was, but that didn't stop me. I was overwhelmed by the menu because I hadn't been there before and all I could think of was FOOD, FOOD, FOOD, get in my belly. So I got a chicken burrito. When it came, it was huge. It easily could have been 2 or 3 meals. I knew I should have not eaten the whole thing, yet I kept eating... So when I got home I was completely stuffed. I knew that if I had eaten like that at lunch I would have been too full to eat dinner. I went to bed not feeling that great. Besides the night sweat I broke out in and had to turn the fan on in my room, I slept great.

I got up early for my dentist appointment. I got my first invisalign tray. I only have to wear them about 5 months. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!! This makes me incredibly excited and mean I might be able to start the dental implant surgery sooner (end of summer) rather then later (next year) AND get $2000 from insurance for it. So I can't eat with the thing in. Thus makes snaking a little hard. I usually have 2-3 snacks a day at my desk. I think I am going to need to bring a tooth brush to work as well. This could get interesting because 1. I am lazy and don't want to have to brush my teeth a gazillion times a day and 2. I love to eat. Also, at the dentist office the chick who helps me (and also does WW) could tell I have lost weight! Yeah! I haven't seen her since the first week of January. So people are noticing!

Why do you need surgery? Something in the back of your mouth? Your teeth seem fine in photos. (I'm not questioning your decision, just trying to understand what's going on.)
