I'm home on my lunch break. Had a delicious broccoli and cheese stuffed potato from Jenny Craig with some extra steamfresh broccoli on top. YUM! Loved it with some hot sauce...mmm. I still have three more visits this afternoon and afterward I will be going to pick up my sister. We have a lovely weekend planned! Thai food tonight (Drunken noodles with tofu and vegetable (extra broccoli), thai spicy = my favorite food of all time) which I have not had since before I started Jenny Craig. I think it's been five months...I already worked the calories into my plan. You know, it's not as bad as I thought!! Especially since I do the tofu and veggies!

Then we will watch some X-files and hanging out! Maybe a walk in this beautiful fall weather! I looove when it's chilly and clear like this, it is my favorite.

Big NVS today that I needed to share. I went into my closet today to look for a pair of pants to wear...now my black pants I could not wear before because they wouldn't even close. It has been over a year since I could even squeeze into them. Well I decided just for shits and giggles, I would try them on...


Not only did they fit...THEY ARE TOO BIG!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it! My FAVORITE pair of black pants...that I couldn't even zip up or if I could, I had a huge muffin top, are too big! WOOHOO!

I am so excited!!!
