Week one results: 272.5 lbs (down 8.5!!!)

I was blown away this morning when I weighed in. I would never have thought I could lose that much weight. I am guessing a lot of it was from the moving of boxes this week. I did drink plenty of fluids, but I also know that shifting boxes & furniture burns calories like crazy as big as I am. Mind you- my muscles screamed at me so much the morning after the first day of moving the boxes. It was about 2-3 days of real effort in addition to my workouts. As great as that weight loss is, I don't plan to look to find employment as a mover to lose weight fast. emoticon

Before I weighed myself I ate prepackaged noodles. So totally off plan. When I weighed myself later I felt real guilty, one for eating off plan and two- not weighing myself right when I got up like I usually do. The batteries in the wii balance board needed replacement, I thought, "Oh well, I will just eat something quick, then replace the batteries & weigh after." Silly, silly idea! So I fixed crap food, ate said crap food, then got batteries & weighed myself. If I had gotten the batteries first, I would have not been weighing the food I ate (so I might have lost 9 lbs. instead) and next- I would have been overjoyed at the progress that I would have eaten a healthy on plan breakfast. So my lazy short cut only short changed myself.

For dinner I fixed a lime shrimp stir fry sans rice:
