Day 16 - Successful dinner and Weigh-In!

First things first... had WW today. I lost another 4.6 lbs this week! That brings my total weight loss since August 25, 2008 to 39.8 lbs. That also makes 9.6 lbs I have lost in TWO WEEKS using my new plan! Yeah, now I can say the sacrifice is worth it. Funny thing, is that since I went out to eat last night, I wasn't expecting a big loss. Good thing I stuck to my plan of action!

I ordered grilled chicken and veggies like I'd planned. And started with a house salad with vinaigrette on the side, the just drizzled on. They came over with a basket of bread, and even mixed together herbs and olive oil for a dipping sauce. I didn't have any at all! Didn't even want it. I only ate half of my chicken, because it was a huge piece. I have been eating a lot of chicken lately, so I can tell by looking what is about a 4 oz. serving. I only drank water, too... no alcohol.

I was pretty pleased with how I looked, too.

I felt so much smaller in my jeans, and my belly looked so much flatter! My niece hasn't seen me in a while and she couldn't believe it. I took several pics, but hated them after I looked at them. I still "looked" like a fat slob on all the full-body shots, but I sure as hell didn't feel that way. I think I looked good! So I cropped the picture so I'd like it, lol!

When I compared it to my old profile pic, I think I look so different! In a good way, though. The other pic looked like the "old Hollie" that was stuck in a bad marriage and lacked hope. I like this picture because it symbolizes the "new Hollie". The one who took charge of her life, and had the strength to make the changes needed to find the happiness she deserves! The person who believes in herself enough to make hard choices. I am changing from the inside out, people! I can honestly say that I am proud of myself!
