Weigh in day. I was happy with a 2 lb loss this week. Next week I have a bunch of challenges. First is spending the weekend with my in-laws. They are all great cooks! I will need a ton of discipline to get through the weekend without indulging in all that they are likely to prepare for us. And then on Thursday I have a celebration dinner with friends at one of my favorite restaurants. I know I need to plan ahead to avoid land mines. How do you all handle this--for example when visiting friends or family who love to cook for you? I hate to be THAT person who says "I can't eat this or that" but I've worked so hard this month I hate to give up ground. Hopefully the weather will be good so I can at least get out and get some walking done.

Rocky and I would love to have company for dinner, anytime! Tonight we shared a small sirloin steak, cooked medium rare, brown rice and broccoli. He won't eat rice or most veggies, although he likes sweet potatoes.
Today was a very big day for us. I adopted two cats from our local shelter and brought them home this morning. They are brothers and have been at the facility for over a year. There are 165 more cats there waiting for furever homes. I have no idea how Rocky will react when he realizes they are here. I have them in the third floor, with access to a bedroom on the second floor. Their names are Buster and Bruiser. I will very slowly introduce them, through a secure baby gate, and in the end I think they will be great friends.
So, day seventeen. My blood sugar readings are the best they've ever been. I'm being so thoughtful about what I put in my mouth and it shows. I can't wait to see my Dr in March and show a decent weight loss and much improved A1c reading.
I'm so happy to have this group to check in every day. You ladies are the best!

What is everyone's thoughts on "cheat meals". I have decided to allow 1 of them like every 2-3 weeks. Weekly seems too often for me, as I'm not sure I would see much progress. But I want the option for when I am having insane cravings for something, or when I go out with friends or something. It's tricky though because I don't want to get back into the groove of eating junk constantly.

My husband has just booked a cruise for my big 50th birthday in Novemeber, exactly 41 weeks away.
So this is more incentive than ever to lose 1 pound a week..........:)

Worked out for at least 30 minutes for 28 days in a row, and I couldn't be prouder!

@JennDoingTheThing: At first I did, but as I've gone on, I've learned non-food ways to nurture and reward myself, and I have the experience to know that nothing is as good as the first few bites, taste-wise, and that I've gotten my capacity way down. I just cannot physically consume that much any more at one time. Since I'm going to log what I eat anyway, I discover things like...oh! I can have a side of onion rings with a single hamburger and keep within my calorie margin! I can eat three barbecued baby back ribs and half a serving of corn pudding! And knowing I can, without any more planning than I'd put to my daily cooking, lets me say, "Yeah, barbecue's tasty. Maybe next weekend we can plan a trip," and be okay with eating within my margins when I get there. I remember eating an entire slab of ribs. I know I cannot do it, so it's okay not to do it.
