Losing weight and feeling great!

I am heading in the right direction!  This week I decided to step up and show you all a picture progress report.  I am not nearly where I want to be yet, but I can feel the progress so I want to show it!  The first two pictures are from Christmas Eve.  I am in the black and white striped sweater holding the handsome little man.  Yuck yuck yuck!!  The second two were from yesterday.  This is officially 13.2 lbs lighter!!

I can mainly see a difference in my face, the upper body on the other hand needs more work...or maybe a different shirt!

So here are the stats:
Starting weight: 200.8 lbs
Last week: 189.8 lbs
This week: 187.6 lbs
Loss (gain) this week: 2.2 lbs
Total loss:  13.2 lbs

This week is going to be my biggest challenge though.  On Saturday my family and I are going to Morton's Steakhouse.  We go twice a year and you can't really leave there without eating too much!  So I am trying to plan ahead!  I figure I can do the broiled crab cakes, salad, asparagus and broccoli.  At dessert I told Dave he will have to share something...but he can have most of it!  And then I will also be sure to workout both Saturday and Sunday!

I pray I get out of there not too much fatter!  Dave usually gains about 5 lbs in a trip!  But this will be the true test.  I know the rest of the weekend my eating will be fine because my mom is doing Weight Watchers and my dad lost like 40 lbs this past year so he only eats healthy. 

Goals for this week:
  1. Keep up water intake.
  2. Work out 4 to 5 days this week.
  3. Don't eat out at all until Saturday evening.
  4. Finish week 3 and start week 4 of Couch to 5k.
  5. Do not gain!
If I don't lose I will be fine...but I do not want to gain!  I will be honest next week and not cheat like I did last week weighing in early!

I mentioned in a previous post that I finished week 2 of the C25k.  I did week 3 day 1 yesterday and I am happy to say I survived it!  I actually ran two intervals of three minutes each!  I have never been able to do that!  I am very excited about that!

Well, that is it!  I hope everyone else did well this week!  Post about it in the comments!
