Not what I expected

I went to WW tonight, even though I wasn't looking forward to my WI. The past 2 weeks I've had to go to a Thursday evening meeting instead of Tuesday evening b/c the past 2 Tuesdays have been holidays. Last week I gained 3 pounds. It was expected... it was the week after Christmas. This past week though, I've been sick & haven't cooked at all. I've eaten whatever was around & convenient, and it included ordering pizza twice. I didn't think I'd gained, but I definately didn't think I'd lost any weight.

So imagine my surprise when tonight I stepped on the scale & was down 2.8 pounds! I feel like I'm right on track now. I'm at 38.2 pounds lost so far! I'm not crossing my fingers for my 40 pound mark next week, since I'll be back to Tuesdays... and it's not a full week. But 40 pounds lost is getting close!

I feel like I'm back in the zone now.... I grocery shopped, I'm trying out some new recipes, I'm all fired up:)
