Weigh in Eve

Tomorrow I weigh in again, does it get any easier??

I did a pretty good job eating this week even though I went out on Saturday. I was running around like nuts today and had to stop for lunch. Went to Whole Foods and got a veggie sushi roll and seaweed salad. It was good and filling and very few calories! I waited too long to eat though, I have a terrible headache. Ugh.

I am hoping for a loss tomorrow...really a small one would do! :D I've noticed that my clothes are getting VERY loose which feels great. However that also means I'm going to need some new ones soon! Which is good because I looove fall clothes. Would love to get some new things for my trip to Ireland!!

Today's recipe is one of my absolute favorites of ALL TIME. This will make me break my diet again and again...now I don't have to!
