Weigh in Day

So yesterday was the day....the results from the start of my new journey... weigh in day. I lost 3.2 pounds. I am so proud of me for sticking to this and I know that I can do this. I won't let myself fail. This is what I had for dinner last night - it was soooo good! Homemade Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad. I have found a new love for baby spinach and it tastes so good in my salads.
I even let the family have a taste and I think they were jealous because the scrambled eggs they were having were not as good as my tasty salad. The only thing I am finding hard is getting in all my points everyday. So many things I eat are less than 3 points so getting up to how many I am allowed makes it difficult. I am eating more and more vegetables and fruits then anything and I love it. There are some things I need to cut back on that I have eaten and probably shouldn't but I know that and know what changes I need to take to get to what I have set out to do. Everyday is a new day and I can wake up and say that I CAN DO THIS...... I can have a new outlook everyday and I choose to look for the positive in everything that I can.
This week is going to be a busy one, I have a Birthday party tonight for my cousin and then Thursday is my Birthday <3 Happy Birthday to me.... and then Saturday night I am going out with some girls from work...I am so excited! Then Sunday we are doing a Birthday dinner.... I am going to eat really good all day on Sunday so that I can have something yummy for dinner, we are going to Joe's Crab Shack....not my all time favorite but it is good and they have a place for the kids to play.... all in all busy week but fun week.... I will post again tomorrow. :) Amy
