It's Official!

It's official! For the first time, in 13 years of marriage, I weigh..............................LESS than the husband!!!!! I am so happy! I have informed him that he now needs to treat me like the petite and fragile flower that I am. Can you hear the laughter? Yeah, it went on for a while...

So, today was WI day for BLBE2 and Weight Watchers. Good news to report Team Angie members; I am down 1.4 lbs! Happy Dance. I think my 3 day 5K "payin for it" runs helped out!

I brought my breakfast to eat after the meeting: an apple and slice of pumpkin cranberry bread that I made last night (yum - and only 2 POINTS per slice)...



I invited Mom and Gram to lunch at my house. I made Falafel Wraps for Mom and me using the falafel patties from the other day, lettuce, tomatoes and some tzatziki dressing all rolled into a La Tortilla Factory Tortilla. Carrots and hummus were a great side. A wonderful 7 POINT lunch...


Oh, and Gram opted out of falafel and brought her own soup. Sorry, Gram :(

Lunch was so filling, I decided to tempt fate and go without a snack. I did make some of Jenn's yummy Coffee Cocoa for a treat, though. This is quickly becoming a family favorite. The daughters like it, so I have had it waiting for them when they get home from school (decaf, of course!). Here's my cup, "half-full"......

Dinner was Philly Cheesesteaks, fries and salad. Mmmm...what's not to love??? This type of meal really makes me feel like I am not on a diet, but living a lifestyle of healthy eating. I was able to take something that once was fat-laden and artery clogging and have made it healthier, but still in keeping with the same flavors of the original. The husband and daughters eat it - no complaints. That's how I know it's pretty close to the original! It's one of my favorite 8 POINT dinners, too...

I could've gotten away without dessert tonight. Coulda, woulda, shoulda. But, I didn't. I went with one of these guys...


It was just enough and I closed up shop before I could be tempted into eating something else. I strung a good couple days together; don't want to break the flow. I'm going to try my hardest to keep it going this week. I am only 1 lb. away from a 70 lb. loss. I really want it next week!
We'll see......
Nite =)

Way to go on the WI!!!! (and you were worried, lol)

Please share your philly cheesesteak recipe! I've never made it. I've only had it in restaurants, and who knows if it was even a true philly cheesesteak!

Melissa - thanks! Good luck to you tomorrow:)

Dee- thanks! Yeah, I'm still worried :0
For the cheesesteak, I use some club rolls ( about 130 cal. per), Landis 94% sirlion beef steaks (frozen thin sliced beef layered between papers - like Steak-Ums), slices of 2% cheese. I also saute some onions and mushrooms for mine. Good stuff!
