September 19, 231!

Weekly weigh-in, I'm at 231, finally some definitive reduction again. I credit either sticking (mostly) to the new 1600-calorie plan, or getting my monthly and losing tons of water weight (probably mostly that).

So, I really didn't have more to say than that.

Goal of 220 is still set for Oct 31. 11 pounds to go. A little sad to think that goal date was once supposed to be Oct 17 - that's just 2 or 3 weeks away. But Oct 31 is only a couple weeks after that.

Oh, I took some pictures of myself yesterday. I had dressed up and put on makeup for last night's previews (hardly worth the effort since I kept to myself and nobody saw me.) Amazing thing about yesterday's facial pictures - I didn't hate any of them. Usually I take pictures and out of 40, only 2 or 3 are tolerable. As you might remember, that was the straw that broke the camel's back that got me on ediets one night. Yesterday they were all pretty good. I still have a bit more cheek than the average girl ;-) Truth is I probably always will - my brother is cheeky and he's ridiculously skinny right now.

Hey, check out the full-body shot, too. That's me in my new size 18s. Looks pretty good from the front, but then you see, there's a reflection of me from the back and I still look a bit hulking from the back. Just a reminder that I still have a ways to go.

Congratulations on 231! You will be in the 220's before you know it.

Good job, and great pictures of you. You are beautiful.
