162.0!!!!!!  A loss of 4.2 lbs this week!!! YEAH!!! I guess my body likes big losses followed by a small loss and then a big loss again! I'll take it!!  Yee haw!!! If I can lose 2 lbs this week I can get to my goal of 160 two weeks early!! I can do it too since we are going camping this weekend as long as I watch the snacking. I CAN do this! I need to again plan my weekend. If I plan, I can be successful and get to my next goal! There will be no planned exercise but running around after the kids all weekend while we are camping will definitely be exercise. That's what I ended up doing yesterday. I pulled all three kids to the park yesterday in the wagon. Probably a good 100 lbs 1/4 mile to the park. =) Then I basically pushed them in the swings, watched them and spotted as they climbed and actually got to enjoy myself now that the girls are getting more independent. Taylor still needs lots of help climbing but Emily is doing awesome! Then we came back home and we kicked the soccer ball around together and played a little basketball. It was a great day.

Like I said Saturday night, my wedding plans were a success. There were only two things I forgot to consider - appetizers & cake. Oops! I skipped the appetizers.  I also didn't drink hardly anything. The stupid bartender when he poured me my diet coke and rum basically forgot to leave room for the coke. It was so strong I couldn't even drink it. I think I had like 4 sips and I was just done. Oh well. I didn't need to anyway!!! We then sat down for the meal. The salad was ok but the dressing was weird. It was like a ranch but it was called pear vinegrette and tasted like that. I didn't really care for it so I ate a couple bites and then the tomato slices and a cucumber slice. Why waste calories on something that doesn't taste fantastic! Then they served rolls. I decided since I hardly drank anything and saved those calories I could eat half the roll, So I did! The the food came out. My goodness! This steak was HUGE! I cut it in half, ate all the vegetable and ate about 1/2 the potatoes (which were sucrumpicious!). I probably shouldn't have had the last bite i did because I was full but I did. I've learned though. And now I even have leftovers for lunch today. =) The other thing I didn't think about was the cake. But I indulged and it was oh so good!!! So worth it.

So that was my weekend. I've learned I need to plan and I can be successful. I know this and I will continue to do this!!!! Fail to Plan and Plan to Fail!! (I'm not failing!!!!)
