Weigh in Day

I weighed in this morning at 201.2! A new low for me…Yay! I lost 1.6 lbs. this morning and have lost a total of 86.8 lbs! I am getting so close to Onederland…I really wanted to make it this week, but I had to tell myself that 1.6 lbs. is a fantastic loss—for me!

For breakfast this morning, I had a toasted sandwich thin topped with peanut butter and a sliced banana along with a glass of almond milk for 8 points.

I had to go into the office today—and I knew I wouldn’t make it through without some coffee. So I made an iced latte with almond milk and Almond Joy creamer for 1 point.

For my first break at work, I ate 1/2 serving of almonds and a light cheese stick for 4 points.

When I go into the office, I like to grab Sonic’s grilled chicken wrap—I just love it. Today, it was especially delicious. 10 points.


Worth every point…I swear.

And I had to have a soft serve cone from my favorite place since I was in town…strawberry swirl for 5 points.


mmmkay, in retrospect, should have skipped the cone or at least planned a little better today—but I was short on time this morning and last night! So it goes sometimes! No biggie, but I only have 5 points left for the night. I think I’ll try to eat a big salad tonight—because obviously I’m lacking on the veggies and fruit today! That should keep my supper lower in points value.

The workday went very fast, and I took a couple of hours vacation so I could get home in good time tonight. A pretty uneventful day!

I’m going to sign out early again tonight because we have plans for the evening and will be getting home late. Tomorrow should be a back to normal post! It’s been quite the week—busy, busy, busy!


  1. Congrats on the awesome weight loss this week. That Sonic wrap is one of my favorites, too!

  2. I bought almond milk today for the first time..... can't wait to try it!

  3. Congrats, Alissa! You're SO CLOSE to Onederland...and to opening that box!! :)

  4. YEEEESSSSS!!! Dance, dance, dance! So close to Onederland.

    I remember the utter joy and excitement of that milestone. I hope to celebrate it with you REAL SOON! I just felt so great, cause there were years I never thought I'd cross that barrier again.

    My only milestone that matches in significance (but not in excitement, cause Onederland just rocked my psyche) was not being obese anymore. My two big weight milestones.

    Here's to continuing on this health journey with lots of smiles and happy dances...

  5. Congrats on your weigh in this week!!! Keep up your hard work and you're destined for onederland next week!!!


  6. I love your blog. I'm one month into my weight-loss, exercise new life and your blog inspires me. Thank you!
    And congrats on your weight loss!

  7. Great job! In the next week or two, you will be in Onederland!

    How is your heartburn?

  8. Congratulations on a great weigh in!

  9. Yayyy! So close! Hopefully next week, but if not surely the next! I dunno, that strawberry cone looks really good to me! :) Days when I have to leave the house are crazy days. Nothing goes as "planned" for me on those days. What do you do from home? I ask because I used to do medical transcription from home. My almonds are only 2 points for half a serving, which is 0.5 oz. They are blue diamond lightly salted. I have really gotten to LOVE them. Sometimes it's hard to eat just half a serving!

  10. Wow, over 86 pounds gone. Hooray! That swirl cone looks yum yum yum. :)

  11. WAHOO!!!!! Congrats on the loss and the new low! You will be in onederland in no time!

  12. Congrats on an awesome WI!!! :)
