While I realize both the weight loss and financial journeys will continue for quite some time, I’m so excited that this week was a true success! It gives me hope that I won’t be fat forever and that we can actually meet that crazy financial goal we set last week.

First up: Finances. As a quick refresher, we decided each week we could eat out 1 lunch, 1 take out meal and 1 restaurant meal. Well, this week it was revised to 1 lunch and 2 dinners, since our take out meals cost just as much as restaurant meals for the most part. I ate my lunch out on Monday- I couldn’t resist the offer of Mexican. I’m proud to say I held strong for the rest of the week, with the company-paid lunch on Tuesday definitely helping! Kevin and I made it all the way to Saturday without eating out, but still got our 2 meal quota in since we don’t want to be overachievers on the first week! We were planning on only eating out at lunch, but were quite disappointed by Milton’s lunch buffet. That afternoon we went to a wine tasting sponsored by The Produce Box that was fun but the wine worked up our appetites leaving us hungry for a good meal. When in doubt, we head to Torerro’s, my favorite Mexican restaurant. It was yummy as usual!

And now for the big success! I lost … drum roll please… 5.6 pounds this week! Yippee! I can’t tell you how excited this makes me! I was following the program very closely all week concentrating on veggies, dairy, and exercise. Now I just need to concentrate on not straying from the program since it clearly works!

And don’t all good things come in 3’s? Well, Kevin and I tried a new church yesterday that we both actually like! I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves since we thought we had found “our” church before, but this one has a lot of potential! I’m completely content to celebrate the fact that we know where we’ll be going next week!
