Fat Butt Friday: The Birthday Splurge...

Yeah, I totally splurged yesterday... and there is no way in Hades I am going to step on that scale this morning. Nope, don't even ask me too.

But just so you know, I had a great birthday! Ben send me flowers. I love that! The boys behaved pretty well, and the food at my favorite Mexican restaurant was just as good as I remembered it! Now, I think I will be full all weekend. Do you think the boys will be irritated if I just roll around the house for a few days?

You are going to be proud of me, though. After eating all the goodies, I still had enough energy to go to the gym and walk/ jog 2 and a half miles. I couldn't run my mile though. Mexican food doesn't like a good work out... it tends to make a good work up though when I tried... Oh, well!

So, I am going to report my weight just before I stuffed my belly full of yummy yums. Here are my stats:

Weekly Stats

Starting weight: 279 lbs

Weight last week: 201 lbs
Total loss up until then: 78 lbs
Weight before the Birthday Splurge: 200 lbs
Lost this week: 1 lb -- I was hoping for more, but a pound is still a pound!
Total loss: 79 pounds
Goal weight: 179 (My hundred pound mark)

My goal this week is to tip myself out of the 200's once and for all!!! Think I can I do it??

PS-- Sorry, I forgot I promised update pictures, but I haven't gotten around to taking any. So I swear up and down that I will post some next week!

I'm so glad you had a happy birthday and that you splurged! Good for you!

I think you should put a countdown on your blog. You know like how many days until you and Ben will be REUNITED! Sounds romantic right?
Just a thought.

You are doing SO well! Next week you'll hit "Onederland" for sure! And it isn't really a 'splurge'- it's called LIVING. So long as you get right back to your good habits, I think it's an important part of losing. We have to figure out how to fit those things in when appropriate if we have any hope of MAINTAINING a loss long-term.
