I hope the weigh-in goes (or went) well. It sounds like you have learned a lot of important lessons this week that will provide you with a great foundation for long term success.

I see your goals are similar to mine. My fantasy is to get to 125 pounds, but I would be very happy to get to 160 by the time of my SP anniversary next Fall. I have learned that by putting my long-term goal on my little turtle tracker, I don't see enough progress from week to week to spur me onward. I do better when I track (and celebrate) smaller, short term goals and can see my success every time I post.

Things I have learned this week. I don't miss smoking as much as I thought I would! I like more fruits and vegetables than I realized. I have muscles I haven't used in years. I have lost my coordination! lol!! I have had to relearn how to jump rope. I like Zumba (another coordination test I failed, but I'm working on). I need to exercise in the morning because by afternoon and evening, I start dreading the thought. Two MGD 64's twice a week is the most I am going to drink for a while. Sex burns 364 calories an hour! It's hard to drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day, but I have! Still have to pee constantly. :-( The amount of food on my meal plan is frightening large.

Tomorrow (Monday Jan 31 2011) I have my first weigh in and I am terrified. Wish me luck!
