I was not expecting a 3.2lb loss this week. I've been feeling bloated. As many of you know I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome...and my body does WIERD stuff. I've been having my period for the last three weeks. Isn't that just SPECTACULAR!? I thought so. So I know that I'm retaining some fluid, I've been drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated in the heat and to fill me up so I'm not so hungry before, during and after meals! I've been consistently getting my 8 glasses a day (and running to the bathroom about 45 times a day).

My goal of getting to 294 is accomplished! Today I was 293.6, WOO! This means that I have lost 10% of my weight AND have lowered my risk of Type II Diabetes!!! I didn't plan it like this but I am having a little party tonight with some close friends to hang out and watch movies. This is my prize for 10% lost! Yeah yeah I know I scheduled the party a couple weeks ago but it can still count, right? Right! :D

The party is at my house so I've made all the food. Made onion dip with Breakstone's fat free sour cream- for 2 tablespoon serving of onion dip its 20 calories. I figure I'll have a little with some veggies that I'm cutting up. I have a big fruit salad. I have reduced fat potato chips and some hummus and low calorie pretzels. These are things I know my friends will enjoy but that  I can also eat without feeling too guilty! I'm setting myself up for success! I know I can make good choices and stay on plan. I know there will be a little splurging but I can do fine!

So now that I've achieved my first goal, it's time for me to reveal my second goal!! IT IS VERY EXCITING! I've been talking a lot with another wonderful blogger who writes Fat Girl in a Skinny World! She is awesome! And when I make it to my halfway weight which is 235, I am rewarding myself with going to visit her in Canada! WOO HOO! What a goal! I better get my buns moving!

In other news my JCC was better today. After last week and me telling her very clearly that I need to do meals on my own for my financial security and telling her I would reassess if my weight didn't show the results I wanted, it really sunk in for her. I CAN lose weight doing meals on my own...and I HAVE to do it. I need to learn how to eat without Jenny Craig food (and I figure it's going to take a long while before I'm comfortable doing every meal on my own, that's why I'm starting now with just a handful). Not to mention I find the idea of paying 2.95 for one serving of cereal to be outrageous. I bought a box of Special K with Red Berries for 1.99 after using a coupon...and that's a whole BOX, DOZENS of servings! The cost is a little inflated for something like that. JC is definitely worth it to me, but I also don't see any harm in substituting a more cost effective solution when able to!

After having to get up at 5am to work today...on my day off...running around to get my patients seen and then speeding (ahem, I mean driving exactly the speed limit the entire way) to my appointment, I am exhausted. Getting everything prepped for the party tonight and maybe a little nap... maybe.

Sending out skinny vibes to my other Wednesday weighers, like another fellow blogger Fat in Suburbia! Have a great day everyone.

And happy 19th birthday to my little brother! Love you <3
