Moving on DOWN!

The scale continues to show me some love and I was down 1.4 pounds this week for a total of 6.4 pounds in 3 weeks. WOOT!! The scale read 143.6. OH YEA!!

I can't believe I am in the low 140's. WOW!! I can't wait to get to 1-4-0 exactly. That has been the magic number in my head for a while now and I just want to see it. I am inching closer and closer as the days go by.

The consistent exercise and the consitent clean food with NO cheats or bites or licks or anything is totally paying off and I am loving it.

I was told by my trainer, Tim, at Structure Fitness that I could have a cheat meal on Christmas. Well as much as I want to I decided that I would rather have it the day after Christmas when we get together with J's Grandpa for Christmas. At that meal we have the appetizer type food that I really like. Cheese balls, smokies, and I am making rotel/cheese dip. OH YUM!! I can taste it now. So if I am going to get 1 cheat meal in the month of December then I want it to be GOOD and something that is totally worth it and something that I love.

Christmas is 5 days a week and I am thrilled. My girls are so excited and that just makes me smile. Every day Lizzie says, "we open presents, it's Christmas". She thinks it should be here now and of course has no sense of time and what 5 days is. Chloe knows that Santa will be coming very soon and she is so excited about it.

Awesome on the 143 Dawn! WOW, you are really losing it! Proud of you. Enjoy that day after Christmas meal, you deserve it.

Oh, you skinny thing, you! LOL You're doing great. You'll be at that magical number before you know it.
Have a great Christmas!
PS You can make that yummy Rotel dip a little more calorie friendly. Just use Velveeta 2% and Rotel. Then dip baked corn chips in it. Not quite as bad. :)

Dawn, that sounds like an awesome plan! I would want to get the most out of my cheat day too!! You are really kicking butt. Just keep that cardio up and hit the diet hard and those pounds will CONTINUE to melt away. Thanks for the mention of Tim at Structure Fitness. You are too sweet!!

Merry Christmas, Dawn!
