The weather has just been so great for running lately that I want to take full advantage of it. But I ran the last four days in a row, so I took today off. This morning was my weekly weigh-in. I'm going to start just doing my weight on a weekly basis, and save my body fat and waist measurement for once a month (since the change is so minimal on those).
Today's weigh in?

I went through my closet and tried on a bunch of stuff that I haven't worn in a while--namely my dresses. I was surprised (and delighted) to find that they fit really well now, and my Dr. Oz dress (the blue one I wore on the show) is actually pretty big! I had to wear Spanx to squeeze into that dress on the show. The dress I wore in Sarah's wedding is now pretty loose as well, and I could barely zip it (even with Spanx) on the day of her wedding a little over a year ago.
I was able to move all of my jeans into the "wearable in public" pile, and even get rid of some that were too big. This time, I have to KEEP THEM THERE, and have a very solid plan for maintenance. I'm going to try and follow in Stephanie's footsteps, and continue to count PointsPlus in order to stay at goal. I'll get to add some extra PP once I hit goal, but I will still be counting.
I made a really quick and good soup for lunch today. I've been craving cream of mushroom soup, but when I make it homemade, it's only good with a lot of cream in it. And that's about a million PP. So I just chopped up 8 oz. of mushrooms, and 6 oz. of leftover turkey and added it to a pot along with a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of milk. That made two very filling servings, at 6 PP each. I was full for hours afterward, and the soup was SO good!
Jerry would have been getting a bonus at work for perfect attendance (they do that once a year in December), but today ruined that :( Once he got the car home, he ended up going in to work with the Jeep, but he was an hour late--so the bonus is void.
We can technically get by with just the Jeep, but then I would be stuck at home for his entire 12-hour shifts. I would go crazy! A couple of years ago, we had to go an entire summer and part of the fall with just one car. The boys and I had to get very creative with things to do. And we called a bus to pick us up at home once in a while--the boys thought that was so fun! I did not ;)
But anyway, I'm just hoping that the van can be fixed. I don't know how soon my dad can look at it (we're always at the bottom of his priority list, since his "paying" customers come first, haha).
Tomorrow morning, I'm going to run and then go to my second Weight Watchers meeting. I'm still nervous to go, but not nearly as nervous as last time!
