Weigh-in no. 36: so many things to celebrate!

weigh-in no. 36 (-2.6)
Starting weight:   327.0
Last week:           277.8
This week:           275.2    
Loss of                  - 2.6
Total Loss           -  51.8 lbs

I actually saw 1 lb less on the scale yesterday (I've been weighing a little more during the week than usual trying to pay closer attention to my nutritional/caloric balance) and I know I ate under my caloric limit yesterday, but for some reason, the protein I had has decided to extend its normal length of stay.  Oh well.  A 2.6 lb loss still ain't bad!! 

In addition to the loss this week, there's other things that have made this week amazing and marks the celebration of several things:

1) I've lost 51.8 lbs!! 
(and when I am at 53 lbs lost, I'm 1/3 of the way to my goal weight!)

4) Jim and I booked our flights, car rental and hotel for 4 days in Cornwall for my birthday!  
Our first real vacation together!

I'm most looking forward to spending time in St. Ives (photo from

5) I got a new (to me) car that I love and that gets about 60mpg!

her name is Nina and she's a 2003 Peugeot 307sw

How's your week been?
