First goal in arms reach

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Well my first goal was to be down 35 lbs. by the 4th , my birthday is on the 3rd and boy did I fall off the wagon. I do enjoy a good deal so on my B-day I usually get a free meal at a resturant that gives a free B-day dish well this year I really took advantage! For breakfast we hit DENNYS , got a free grand slam , yummy. Didnt stop there , got a pancake puppies sundae for desert , oh yea and a sweet iced coffee. What a nice treat. Myself and my daughter enjoyed the afternoon by going to a couple clothing stores & getting some good deals , buy one get one free tops and 3 dollar sandle flops. Also Bath & Body Works were having a great sale of buy 3 get 3 free and 75% off select items got over 90 $ worth of favorites scents for only 25 $ Lunch time at home , some fruit and salad . Dinner time we met my sister and daughter and hubby and had MEXICAN CANTINA , another free B-day dinner ! I had chicken & cheese enchiladas , black beans , rice and lets not forget the chips & salsa. Didnt have drinks only water. I did try to track all the calories , I'm sure I didnt calculate them all in cause I gained 2 pounds over the holiday weekend! Oh well back on the wagon and Im just an arms reach of that first 35 lb goal and I will hit in in the next week or so. The good thing is I still have one more free B-day meal comming from BD MONGOLIAN GRILL , my favorite! and they gave me a week to redeem it. Its a date , Tuesday im there. Save the best for last. Oh , and i'll keep ya posted on that arms reach goal too. I'll get there , better late than never. emoticon

    Happy Birthday and congratulations on working to a close finish for your birthday. Yes, you will get there because you have a positive attitude. I've stopped going to restaurants for nearly any reason as there are so many un-needed salt, sugar, and fats thrown in and my system can not longer handle it. I've eaten restaurant food for most of my life as I adore it for several different reasons, but I've had to teach myself to stay away. However, the fact that you can enjoy it, still, and still keep losing is great. Don't give up. You will get there!

    LOL! You crack me up! What a fantastic attitude you have. It sounds like you're having a wonderful time and enjoying yourself. You've obviously worked hard so you deserve to reward yourself. While they say that food isn't the way to do it, I know there have been times that I have rewarded myself with an extra helping and have just worked a little harder during my next workout.

    You're a very positive person so I have no doubt that you WILL get there! Congrats on your success!
