Day 36 - Weigh In #5

This morning, got on the scale and more happiness.  183.5.  That is another 1.5 pounds lost.  And after I ate half a loaf of sourdough bread stuffed with cheese, I'm really ecstatic.  If I hadn't eaten butter, bread, cheese, pepperoni, more butter, chocolate and eggs like they were being discontinued from the planet last night, I may have even done better.  But the Super Bowl feast was fabulous and I still lost weight. 

If I had any portion control, I'd totally make stuff like that more often and just have a little.  But I don't, and if you put a roll in front of me, I will eat it.  If you put a several loaves of bread in front of me, I'll eat it.  All of it.  So, I'm sticking with my weightwatchers recipes for now.  But again, thank goodness that weightwatchers gives me the flexibility to do a little cheating and not be derailed.  I'd go nuts if I couldn't splurge sometimes.

And in the words of my son whenver he finishes doing a puzzle all by himself, "Oh yeah, I did it, oh yeah, I did it."

Day 35 - Super Bowl

Today is the Super Bowl, and I saved and I saved and squandered nearly every point that remained.

Mark and I had an amazing day with the boys (even though Bobby was a little manic from teething, he was generally a happy boy - and James had such a great day).  We settled in to watch the Super Bowl on our own, and I made some fun snacks that are so wrong when you are trying to lose weight.  Bloomin' Pizza Bread (thanks, Dana!) for a appetizer/dinner, and dessert was Roy's Molten Lava cakes, both from The Girl Who Ate Everything.  I totally recommend checking out her blog, even if it may crash and burn your diet.  Its worth the splurge, and some of it is healthy.  But there is so much that is full of fat and goodness that it will derail you quickly.  But it all sounds soooooooooooooooo good.

And the Pizza Bread was as fabulous as I remembered, and the Lava Cakes were divine.  And I spent 55 points on Super Bowl Sunday.  But that still left me 2 points for the week, so I didn't go over my allowance still.  But thinking back (since I'm writing this the day after), I think I missed a couple points here and there, so I probably did actually.  Here's hoping that it didn't kill my week of weight loss.

If you want to check out the blog and fabulous recipes I mentioned above, check out:   Your life will never be the same.  The Lava Cakes are the actual recipe used at Roy's on Hawaii (and now scattered all over the mainland).  I'm drooling just thinking about it.
