The weekly weigh in, week 13

For the first time since I started this diet, I found myself eating out a lot. This definitely presents a few challenges. Trying to figure out the points value of restaurant food isn't the easiest thing in the world, even though I did consult the Weight Watchers Dining Out Companion for every meal. This is basically a list of menu items and their points value from dozens of restaurants. Right before weigh in tonight, I had one point left for the week, and I lost one even pound. This was a little shy of what I had hoped to lose this week. A few more ounces, and I would have hit my first big goal of going under a specific weight. However, I had a real social life this week, and I still lost weight. I'd say that counts as a good week. Total weight loss: 35.6 pounds.

The fact that you can eat out, have a social life, deal with the holidays, and still lose weight is a great accomplishment. Do you know how awesome you are? :D

I am so proud of you! You are an inspiration. I can not stay on any diet plan for long. I have decided that I just need to exercise and leave it at that. Oh, and try to make healthier choices.

I'm having a very difficult time posting comments any more, so her goes.

Eating out is always harder when you are trying to be careful.

Congratulations on your continued victories!

Kudos on your most excellent weight loss! Didn't you know ~ you actually get bonus points for enjoying a social life and maintaining a weight loss of any kind. At least you do on my diet plan, which begins with the phrase, "On or about January 11th, find yourself a scale..." ;)

Brava!

You must feel really confident now about achieving your goal. So many people use going out and socialising as an excuse to fail...I'm glad you overcame the temptation to do likewise...
