Lowest weight to date!

Yesterday, on my route and throughout the day, I consumed approximately 700 calories. I was saving 3-400 for my dinner, which always tends to go a little over that.
Last night, for dinner, I made spaghetti and "meat" balls. The pasta was angel hair, and the sauce was jarred, and the balls were of the frozen soy variety. My son, and The Bunna normally don't eat the soy food I bring home, but the cupboard was bare, so they were forced to consume, with me, the un-meat products I keep just for me.
The bread box was also devoid of the proper spaghetti accompaniment, so I went for the wheat sandwich bread, which I topped with a little margarine, some garlic powder and a dash of Parmesan and parsley. Under the broiler for a couple minutes, and we had a meal.
Started with our usual green salad, with a new variety of dressings, thanks to my wild shopping spree the other day. I think the checker at the store thought I was having a salad party, since I walked out that store with no less than 7 new dressings. :-)
Anyway, with the salad, pasta and meatballs, and pseudo-garlic bread, I'm sure my calorie intake for the day was higher than I normally go. Not to mention the sliced apples and vanilla yogurt dip we all shared for dessert!
Regardless, my weight this morning was 175.2, which is the least I've weighed throughout this whole process! The closest I've come to that was 175.6 a couple of weeks ago.
I'm not exactly on track, but I'm still moving down slowly. Five more pounds in the next four weeks should be easy enough. I'm going to hit that 170 mark before my birthday!


  1. Awesome on your new low weight, and I love that you are converting your family to your way of eating! :)

  2. I know you can do it. 170 by end of October! Since you won't be "treating" for halloween you'll have to think of some really good tricks to pull to Kev and Ed!

  3. Your new low weight is excellent news! Keep up the great work.
