Weigh in day

Well, I had my weigh in today at work for my weight loss challenge. I lost 1.2 pounds. I really thought I was going to have a better week but I should look at the big picture, in five weeks I have lost 9.8 pounds. I'm still in second place so that's a good thing. I went for a 45-minute walk every day this week and I've been eating according to my plan all week. Drinking tons of water!!! I'm doing low carb, high protein and vegetables.  I guess I really have to look at how much I really am eating even though I am low carb maybe I'm eating too much of something? Maybe I'm just not eating enough?  I guess I'll have to play with it a little bit and see what happens, any suggestions?
Going out to dinner tonight with my husband. The way I'm feeling right now I just want to eat everything!!! Sure would love a nice mac and cheese or a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs LOL but I will try to pick wisely keeping my weight loss challenge in mind. Most of the participants are men. There are only two girls so all the other girls in the plant are rooting for me.  I'm feeling a little pressure to say the least. Everyone asks me every Friday morning how I did with my weigh in. So far I haven't had to say I gained any weight at least I have lost weight each week!!!! It's an average of about 2 pounds a week which is a good average but I need to lose a little bit faster because of this challenge.  I only have one month left!!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
Who is watching the Superbowl and what kind of snacks will you be eating during the game?

Trying something new!

Yesterday I went and checked out an all women's a Cappella group that I'm interested in joining.  I sang in my highschool chorus many many years ago and for several years now I have been thinking how fun it would be to get into that again.  I was very nervous but brave as I walked in not knowing a single person.  All the ladies were so nice and welcoming that it didn't take me long to relax.  They are a very professional group and I have to go through several stages before I even become a member and that's if they even pick me.  I have to sing in front of a board of 12 members with a quartet for the audition. They give me eight weeks to learn a song with the group before I can actually audition.  It will be a challenge for sure but I know I can do it.  The ladies said they will help me to prepare for it.  I'm just gonna take it one step at a time, but give it my all!!  Ohhh how I love to sing with a group.  This will also give me something else to focus on besides eating...lol.  Wish me luck!!!
