10 in 20 – Day 17 – The End Is Near
We’re entering the very final day of this little experiment. I will still weigh myself before I head off to Toronto on Sunday morning, but tomorrow is last full day of this little challenge.
By the goals I laid out at the start of this whole adventure, I’ve achieved them. The goal was 10, but getting close was good enough. I got to 9.5lbs yesterday, so were there. I’d REALLY like to hit that 10 though, so I ain’t giving in yet.
So this morning the scale flipped out again. It said 169.5lbs. Then 168.0Lbs. Then 169.5lbs again. Then back down to 168.0lbs. SO I took out the battery and reset it. Calibrated it and, after several weighings settled on 168.5lbs. I’ll gladly take that over 169.5lbs. So, holding steady from yesterday. Yay!
I got a haircut today. It had been two months. I’m hoping the half pound of hair cut from my head will factor in tomorrow when I get on the scale.
Nearing the end, I have given a bit of thought about the next goal and I think it’s going to be another 10 pounds before Thanksgiving. I THINK that’s it. If I can get down to 158lbs, I will feel much happier with my weight. I’ll actually still be over that old ‘proper weight for your height/age/etc’ chart, but 158 will make me happy and now I know it can be done and in a relatively short time. That would put me at a nice weight for Mom’s Thanksgiving Dinner. I’m drooling already thinking about it.
Today I ate pretty well. I did have a small treat, but I dropped come other foods to make up for it. Still ate less WW Points than yesterday. Even with the treat. Okay, let’s take a look at today’s food…
Subway 6″ Turkey on Wheat, Baked Lays Sour Cream & Onion Crisps, bottle of water – 11 WW Points
Yep. Same old. Don’t mess with the classics. It’s a decent sandwich.
Apple Slices – 1 WW Point
Yep. Same old. *grumble grumble* 1 point.
Pretzel M&Ms – 4 WW Points
Treat! Not the fun size size. Though, pretzel M&Ms are so big there’s not that many more in a regular size bag than in a fun size. Nice to snack on as I was editing video and audio in my office this afternoon.
Subway Turkey on Flatbread & Bottle of water – 8 WW Points
Switched it up for dinner and got the sandwich on Flatbread. One extra point, so I decided not to have Chips with this mean. Worked out good. Filled me up and I was fine.
ACTIVITY – 30 Mins Running
Okay, that’s all for today. I will see you all tomorrow as we rush headlong to the end! TOmorrow will be a mad dash of a puppet audition, a kids show and trying to remember to pack absolutely everything I need for Toronto, but I shall still blog and track all my food. If I make my goal I may splurge a little tomorrow night (I haven’t used any of my WW Flex Points). If I don’t, I’ll keep it pretty tame.
