Week 3 and I'm a LOSER again!

Yay! -1.8 lbs!
I ate 4 slices of pizza on Friday had drinks with friends on Saturday, ate those darned little yellow cakes my roomies bought to tempt me with, all within the guidelines outlined by WW, and I lost! 
NO my roomies didn't really buy the cakes with sabotaging me in mind but darned if they aren't tempting. So I at them. 
This week has been good. I actually did some sewing, Yes I said sewing. Me, no really, I sat down at a sewing machine and put together 3 pairs of pants. Mind you nothing fancy but for me a real accomplishment. If anyone ever said to me before in my life that one day I would sit at a sewing machine making my own clothes I would have laughed in their face. So I am pretty proud that I was able to do it. I had the awesome guidance of a friend to help me, but I did it. I actually want to go shopping for fabric to make more stuff. I have a feeling if I keep losing weight I'm going to have to make even more clothes. I guess I will be busy!
Short blog tonight, I just wanted to share my success on the scale! 
til I blog again................

Here I am again, I know, Will I ever get to my goal? God I hope so! 1 & 1/2 weeks ago I decided to recommit to Weight Watchers. I officially weighed in at 230 pounds. So I gained back a few. My 5% goal is to reach 218. I lost 4 pounds in the first week. So, so far, I'm doing well. I have chosen Tuesday night as my meeting night but don't log my weight into the WW tracker until Wednesday morning. I wanted the tracker to start my week on Wednesday not Tuesday so that's why I don't officially enter my weight until Wed even though I weigh on Tuesday night. Makes sense to me so that's how I'm doing it. I have decided to pay for the WW meetings so that I have the accountability and support of the people and my leader. They all seem very nice.
Party Girl!
Yeah you know me forever the social butterfly. It has not stopped. I am having to learn to plan out my parties and camping events with much care. Also my alcohol intake. I can drink on WW but I most definitely have to watch the amount I consume. In my first week back to WW I had 2 happy hours to get through on Friday night, a Costumed party on sat night, and the Renaissance Festival on Sunday. It was a little tricky to get through but I did it and still managed to lose weight. So Woo Hoo for me!
Estrella War is coming up at the end of this month. I truly have my work cut out for me on this one. I will be away for 5 days and have to plan out the entire trip of food, drink and fun. Lucky for me the campsite is pretty big and I will be doing a great deal of walking. This will totally help me out as far as calorie burning. I pretty much think I have the weeks menu planned with lean meats, stirfry veggies, Yogurts, Hummus and Veggie trays, and things like that. We are doing a Steak and Potatoes Night and I plan on bringing my Sweet Potato for that! Lots of Fruit for snacking as well. So I pretty much have that covered. Now to remember to say NO to all (okay Most) the offerings of "hey try my mead, I brewed it myself" or just take tiny little sips of them. Some of them are really really good though. Plus I will be one of those people as I have made my own cordials to pass around too!
I'm back and will be again sharing my journey with you as well as my life. I will write to you again next week with week 2 weigh in results.
