Weekly Weigh-in: September 21

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

As I approached yesterday’s scale date, I had mixed feelings. I wasn’t sure if I was going to have lost weight or not, and IHow Much Does Mr. Ed Weigh? hadn’t weighed myself for a few days.

Truth is, I had quite a weekend. My grandparents celebrated their 65th anniversary, and our whole family gathered at a hotel to celebrate. There was eating, drinking and a wicked game of Family Feud. High points of the weekend included me ordering the low-cal/fat Dragonfire Chicken instead of a sandwich or burger at TGI Friday’s, ordering a steak with fresh veggies and subbing rice pilaf for “loaded mashed potatoes” for lunch on Sunday, and getting in 2 workouts in the hotel’s exercise room on Saturday and Sunday. Low points included 2 pieces of Papa John’s pizza replete with Papa’s love potion (aka, the garlic butter sauce), a couple margaritas and a “snack-sized” Reese’s PB cup McFlurry.

I definitely made some good choices, and I definitely caved to a few of my cravings. So…how did the week pan out on the scale?

Thankfully pretty well! I am down another 1.8, for a total of 4.2 pounds in 2 weeks. Only 10.8 to go!

This week is going to be nuts, and I fear I could be topping the “Roseanne” mark on that awesome celebrity scale above for next week’s weigh-in. I had dinner with my brother last night at Rick Bayless’s Xoco (Dining Away from the Desk post coming soon), I am planning martinis for this evening, tomorrow is a Cub’s rooftop game (all I can eat and drink…good lord, it’s A LOT) and I am going out of town this weekend, which could get dangerous. I’m going to try to squeeze in as many workouts as I can, but let’s face it, if I’m up past 10 p.m., there is v. little chance I’ll actually get up in the morning to work out…especially when I have a fresh transfusion of passion fruit martinis flowing through my veins. We’ll just have to see how next week’s weigh-in goes. I’m hoping it’s not too terrible, but seems like it could get ugly.

    Can I just say that the my favorite thing about your post today (and really my favorite thing of all your posts combined so far) is that the first thing on the right-hand side of the scale says “Baby Jesus”??? What are the chances of that?
    Buster would be so proud… only I’m not sure he would qualify to be the lightest slot on the scale. Oh well…
