Monday Weigh in #2

277!!  Oh yeah...that's a 6 pound loss.  Part of me knows that its skewed somehow or other but, I still feel pretty good about it.

All in all is was a pretty good weekend.  I had some victories and a loss or 2.

We went a screening of Legend.  Yes, that old movie with Tim Curry and Tom Cruise.  We had a great time and remembered why we loved the movie.  There's something to be said for seeing a movie on the big screen that you've only seen on a TV.  It kind of breathes new life into the experience and makes it feel like you're watching it for the first time again.  Granted, having not seen that particular movie in the last 5 years doesn't hurt either.

Anyway, I managed to resist the urge to order some yummy yummy chocolate chip pancakes and just had a small popcorn and a diet coke.  Now, I know what you're going to say...but the popcorn at the drafthouse seems like its a lot lighter then you'd regularly get at a movie theater.  I'm pretty sure they cook it in individual servings, like you would at home.

After that, it was off to a company barbecue for our softball team.  I swear, I only had 1 burger and 1 braut and some pasta and potato salad.  I think all told it was a pretty successful Saturday.  Lots of temptation and I think I managed to hold up pretty well under the pressure.  After all that we went bowling with some old friends and some new friends and had a great time.

Sunday was a lot more relaxed...we just sat around most of the day and played with the dogs.  I think after all our time out on Saturday I think they were happy to have us around.  Sunday evening, we went over to a few old friends' house for dinner (chicken pot pie) and a cool board game called Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game.  We had an awesome evening as we usually do with our friends.

Today, I'll be continuing my couch to 5K efforts.  I think I'm going to make some Chicken Parmesan and spaghetti for dinner tonight.

I need to think of a way to close out these regular posts.  Everything I can think of just sounds terribly lame. Feel free add your own stories or tips about weight loss in the comments.  Maybe we can start something?
