one month down, a lifetime to go!

Well I weighed in this morning, one month on maintenance, at 142.0 lbs. Which means, my first month was totally a success, and I'm happy about that!

Just a quick bullet point update:

- Date with Tech last night went really well....I like this one.
- Ran 4.5 miles this morning, went well!
- NSV's this weekend, I've been dealing with some pretty emotional family issues, and I've managed to not find comfort in food, which is a pretty big deal for me. Did I eat a little more than normal? Yes, but it was good stuff, and it involved no binges. Go Me. Hopefully I can tell you guys about this situation a little further into the week (involves older brother and new wife).
- Ate out twice this weekend (which is ALOT for me), and made great choices both times.
- Today I'm making Brownies and Blondies for work in the morning. Yum! I will stay out of the batter, I promise.
- Michael Phelps, 8 gold medals, remarkable.
- More detailed update tomorrow.

Happy Sunday everyone!

"hugs" sorry to hear about you having family problems they are always hard!
You are doing awesome and plowing through some big obstacles i.e. eating out and still managing to maintain.
Glad you had a good time on your date.

I've been having problems also and I tend to find comfort in food so good for you that you're staying away from it. Michael Phelps is awesome!

Way to go you! I'm always glad to hear people are managing to maintain. It gives me hope that when I get there I will too!

I'm kind of new to your blog and have enjoyed it so far! You are a great inspiration. I hope things get better for your family.

And yes, isn's the greatest that Phelps has 14 golds altogether!

Glad your first month went so well and that you are liking your new "friend"! And so sorry that there is strife in your family...I wish you and them well.

I'm sorry about your family issues. It is hard but a true test that you have changed your life that you did not turn to food. I'm glad to hear your date went well. Good thing to make those treats and then be able to leave them some where else besides your kitchen!

WTG on the maintenance.

Can't believe Michael Phelps did it.
