First of all, I have to apologize for the state of my blog recently. All my creative juices have been funneled in to my classes. You know, for those writing assignments I actually get graded on.
If my writing was a fried chicken, you're getting the drumsticks while my teachers get the big breast pieces.
Anyone want a cold biscuit?

Here are some of the beautiful tulips
This week I did pretty well making healthy choices in the "normal meal" category. (I consider "normal meals" those meals you have during the week, usually at home, that aren't particularly special.)
It's a good thing I did so well in this department because I had some bigger meals on the weekend that could have easily pushed me over the edge into Gaining territory. I've been there before, though. I have a gorgeous vacation home in Gaining and it's especially inviting at holidays.
I ended up have a nice little loss at the scale today (I may or may not have shot my fist in the air like a gold medal Olympian) and I got my +5 lost sticker in the meeting.
I think the stickers should be scratch-and-sniff, don't you? ;) Talk about low points.
I'm going to share my grand total lost next week if I hit what I think I might hit. (Not Goal, just a nice new number.)
As for a Before & After shot like some of you've requested, I don't think I have the guts for that one yet. Definitely once I hit goal, though. (Besides, I don't have a good After pic. Scary Before shot, yes... many, in fact.)
A couple of you already are, but does anyone else want to join me in the last stretch? It could be the beginning of your own joooourney. (barf.)
