This week, it was eating away from home all weekend that made for a plateau - I legitimately think I could have had a loss if not for the weekend. Friday night, my husband had seen rice or something in a magazine and got a hankering for Japanese steak house food, so we decided to pull our dinner plans and head out for dinner to a local Japanese steak house.

That will take 90 days or 13 weeks for me to complete. I hope that by continuing to follow Weight Watchers and working out daily in P90X fashion that I will be successful in my goal of losing 13# by the end of summer. I know that I will need to try to fit in more walks at lunch to help ensure my success.
Just about 1# per week is what it will take for me to reach my goal. I
