No time for slacking though as my anniversary dinner at Victoria and Albert's is only 64 days away and I want to lost an additional 14 pounds by then. So the math geek in me says that I have to lose 1.5 pounds a week to stay on track. My reasoning is that I don't want to buy a new dress and I have one from 2 years ago that I can wear if I lose 14 pounds.
I shared my goal with June last week (my WW leader) and she recommended that I start drinking green tea at least twice a day. Have to say I believe that little change definitely contributed to my super week. I've also decided to give up alcohol until V/A, it is only 9 more weeks. It's not as if I have a glass of wine every night and Chili's no longer serving 2for1 LI Iced Teas does make it all the more easier.
This week I discovered Russel Stover's Sugar Free Butter Cream Caramels. These puppies are not little bites that tease but nice size pieces that satisfy. 3 pieces are 5 points, however I've been allowing myself one a day. A bag lasts just about a week and costs $1.50 at Wal-Mart.
Sunday is the Super Bowl and we're keeping it very low-key. We're staying at home where we are in control of our food. I know that if I get around wings or dip or desserts or well FOOD I'll undo the hard work of these last two weeks. It isn't as if the Jaguars are playing or even one of my other favorite teams. Like many unattached football fans I'll enjoy the game but can't wait to see the commercials, Alicia Keys sing the National Anthem and Beyonce perform at half-time.
Kick-off is 630 our time which is dinner so that's what we'll be having. I'm planning on having Jack Daniel's Beef Brisket which is only 5PP+ a serving people ~ get happy. I'll whip up some yummy veggies and such for pickings and we'll be good to go.
I think the Peanuts say it best
