Not Toooooo Shabby!

So I'm back with some great news. I have been working really hard this week at work, and at my lifestyle change, and my life has had quite a few positives in this past week. My husband got a new job, and has lost 10 lbs himself so far. I received a promotion at work, and also lost another 2 lbs. Hopefully we can keep this up, as it puts a really good vibe in our house which I love.

This coming Tuesday, February 22nd is also my 33rd Birthday, so I have been planing to have a cheat meal sometime this week to celebrate. I think I will save it for Saturday as I have really wanted to try out this restaurant called Motor Burger. I think I am going to order the classic motor burger with sweet potato fries. I'm not sure of the nutritional stats, but I'm thinking I probably don't want to know. Maybe I will take off the bun, and order a salad instead. It's my birthday though so I think I'm gonna go allllll in, maybe even a beer (OMG)!!!!!!!

This week I think I'm going to switch up my meals a little bit, as I'm getting a little bored of the sandwich and salad at lunch. I found a great blog called Gina's Skinny recipes and she has a plethora (love this word) of amazing recipes. I'm actually going to make the chicken, shitake, and wild rice soup today, and use that for my lunches this week. I don't want to get bored with my meals as I'm thinking that is what makes people start to cheat in the first place. I also bought some fresh turkey meatballs that are pre-made at my local grocer, and I want to incorporate that with some whole wheat pasta and sauce.....sounds yummy to me, I will let you know!

Drumrolllllllllllll please.........Ok so this week I lost 2 more pounds and 2 more inches off of my body, bringing my grand total to 6lbs and 6 1/2" lost since February 6th. This may not sound like a lot, but I'm not looking for fast weight loss, I'm looking for PERMANENT...... 2lbs a week is healthy.....
I will start posting pics of my body at increments of 10 lbs lost. I think that would probably show the best results. I'm posting pics of my scale because I want to be accountable for any weight gain, and to show that I'm not hiding a thing!!!

Now for my measurements:

Current Weight: 275.0 lbs

Chest: 47"
Waist: 43 1/2"
Hips: 55"
Left Arm: 17"
Right Arm: 17"
Left Thigh: 34"
Right Thigh: 34"

That makes my total inches lost this week: 2"
Grand Total: 6 1/2"
