Tardy to the party

Oh, if only I could blog as enthusiastically as I'm living the vegan life these days. Cooking, walking, and enjoying summer have really taken a toll on my blog love. You know, I've never been a good multi-tasker, so maybe this is just another example of how much I like to work on one project at a time. And my current project is . . . well, me.

Our long weekend away from home for a family wedding didn't do quite as much damage to that number on the scale as I'd feared. As of today, I'm down a little more than two pounds from last week. I'm really focused now on where I'll be at the end of this four-month experiment, which ends July 7th. I came into this with virtually no goals, certainly none that were weight-loss related, but I've suddenly found myself with a 40-pound total loss within my grasp.

So, you know what that means, right? I'll be spending even more time away from the computer!
I've got a little less than 2 weeks to get the last 3.4 pounds off and make it a real 40-pound loss in 4 months.

Meanwhile, I wouldn't be the proud mommy (actually spelled "mami" at our house) I am without sharing pictures of my pretty girls from last weekend. Eloise, as the flower girl, performed her duties to perfection. And Posey was the life of the party. Especially when she kept everyone entertained by doing her best Darryl Hannah (you saw Splash, right?) impersonation.

Wonderful reminders that, no matter what I weigh, I'm a lucky woman.

Just gorgeous.

I answered your question on my post, but here's my answer anyway:

"I don't own a scale. I got tired of it controlling whether or not I was having a good day or a bad day. It's just a stupid number. It doesn't define me. When I go to the doctor, I even step on the scale backwards so I don't have to see. It's better to not know.

I am going to keep doing the small meals. It's really not a problem with the family meals. For example, tonight we are having veggie burgers, and I'll just have mine without the bun and with a big salad. I just kind of improvise with whatever the main dish happens to be!"

Have a great night!

What sweet pictures of your girls! They look beautiful!

Congratulations on your weight loss thus far! I'm sure you'll make it to your goal!

Hope you're having a lovely week!
