I went to our meeting at work and felt really good about it. I didn't even look at what the scale said - I don't really care because it is what it is. It's like I did anything to make it go down! But I feel good knowing that I will go back every Thursday for the next 6-9 weeks and hope that the scale goes down.
I am also contemplating asking my husband to pick up the kids on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so I can go home and make dinner. Him making dinner the last 8-9 months has really been my downfall. Not only does he not cook as healthy, he serves my portions, and I feel like i am in a restaurant every day (even though I do the menu planning and the grocery shopping). So if I make dinner every day except Monday (and Thursday is pizza night), hopefully it will help me. Plus get me used to making dinner again because I assume once he goes back to work that I will be making dinner again (this time with 2 kids under foot).
