A good chunk of change!

It isn't Monday yet but I did a weigh in anyway. I lost 5 pounds this week for a total of 7 pounds in two weeks! I am so happy about it. I can't wait till it is a total of10 pounds. WOOOO HOOOO for me. I am so proud of myself because that is a good chunk of change off my body. I now weigh what I did at the end of summer. Most days I am super good about the diet and it does get easier the more often I am good.

The hard part for me is MEAT. I can do chicken 4 to 5 nights a week if I can eat carbs but when I can't I die of boredom from the chicken. Thus we have had three nights of steak! It was all lower fat steak but still. This week I want to only do two beef nights. That is completely do able as long as DH will allow fish one night. He doesn't eat ANY seafood and I love the stuff. So if I have fish he cooks something else for himself because I refuse to cook two meals a night.

Today we spent the day with A (boy) and N (girl), twins who are now 4th graders. I watched them as infants and toddlers, and helped their mom's though an awful break up/divorce. They are also IVF babies so their mom's "get it". N loves babies, she asked me twice today about babies. I told her that sometimes people have a harder time getting pg and she seemed to instantly understand. Maybe that is because she knows the Dr helped her mommy with her, or maybe it is a child's 6th sense, but either way she understood.

R had such a good time with both of them and I was so happy to see that both A and N adore him too. We went to the park, played video games, set up a new doll house and I held their pet rat. It was a great day and next month we plan on doing it again. Their little sis G came by with her mom D and picked up N at the end of the day. G was so jealous and I felt bad but she sees me all the time. A and N don't.

N sounds like a very sweet girl. Congrats on the weight loss!!! I know what you mean by eating chicken every night. When I was dieting, I would eat it but would get so sick of it. Pork chops, I read, are good for you as well..if you eat pork. If not, I'm sorry for suggesting it. Have you tried wheat pasta? The thin spaghetti is really good and you could have it with chicken and pasta sauce. Again, amazing weight loss. Congrats!!
