Hey there! I thought I would post a photo of myself for a change, since it's always nice to put a face with a name. So here's me, taken with the Photobooth application on my Mac.

I'm up a little from yesterday, but still under 320, so I'm happy. I went to a family birthday party that involved a lot of good food, and I did eat what I wanted, but didn't particularly overdo it. I really try to avoid that mentality of, "Oh, I'm watching what I eat, so I can't have _______." No. So I had a little bit of everything I wanted to, from the homemade cheese bread I brought, to dessert. And I had my first grilled hotdog of the season! Yum!

Anyway, my spirits are high and I'm feeling really good about my efforts. Of course, it helped to get many compliments from my family, who haven't seen me since about 15 pounds ago, heh. Everyone raved about my progress, which was nice.

That's all I have for now, but despite the grey, rainy morning I feel like a sunshiny day, complete with kittens, rainbows, and a lollypop. :)

Have a great day.

Sounds like you did great! I believe in eating normally, which includes indulging some at a party. If you get too restrictive you'll fall off the wagon altogether. There are no "bad" foods.

Isn't it nice to get compliments? Oh and very cute picture. What's that painting over your right shoulder?

Emily M said...

Well done on the loss! Great photo of you and I love your house!

Megan said...

You are doing really well.

Katherine said...

Love the photo! Compliments from others can be such nice encouragement.

Your pic turned out great. Whenever I used Photobooth, it gives my face a blueish tinge. Sort of alien-esque.

I think you have a really healthy attitude about your food choices. Deprivation isn't the way to go. Moderation is, and you're doing that.

Michelle and lisa: Thanks! The painting is one of mine, as you may have guessed. It's sort of a surreal self-portrait from a series I painted last year. I have all my art up on Flickr, but my pro account just expired and you can't see much now... once I get my pro account up and running again, I will post a link to it! :)

Em: Thanks, yay! I hope things are going well for you, too. :)

Hanlie, megan, katherine, bella, weelittleme: Thank you thank you! :)
