we're heeeeeere! Day 22!

Saturday, December 22, 2012


The drive was uneventful, even pleasant. The family is greaaaat!

Everything according to plan!! I ate leftover soup for lunch @ McDonald's (heh), had my healthy snacks for the car, and lobbied for the salad bar option at dinner. Got salad and a reasonable, low calorie entree. I didn't eat the bread/biscuits, muahahaha. Nor did I partake in beer & chocolates when we got home; I had a tasty cup of tea.

BEHOLD: I met every single Kick August goal today!!! Stretch goals included!

Tomorrow is cookie baking, so I will need all my Kick August determination in high gear!

It helps that I hopped on the scale this morning for my final pre-Christmas weigh in and saw a number under 260. WOOOOOOOOO! I'll use my parents' scale to see where I am relative to tomorrow morning throughout the week, but I won't know my "official" weight again until I get back.

Thank you guys so much for checking in and all the comments. Warm fuzzies! I'll catch up with everybody in more detail soon from a computer, not when I'm writing blogs in the "notepad" app on my phone, hahaha!
