Good morning weekly weighers!
well, I had another good weigh in this week. I don't want to jinx it, but there is a reasonable chance I might see a weigh in under 160 before we fly out on Friday for Germany. I mean, I'm fine if we don't. I just like the idea of it...and it gives me a good reason to stay super on plan until we leave.
im not bringing my scale with me, but I will use my sister in laws while we are there, to at least keep an eye on fluctuations.
I know I will be eating more carbs over the holidays than usual, but there will always be lots of protein forward options. The Germans love their meat and cheese! (But also love wine, beer, sauces....)
Goals: under 160, then 145, top end of a healthy BMI.

Enjoy your trip! Traveling is SO MUCH BETTER when smaller. How long will you be gone?
I refuse to use anyone else's scale except my own, since they're DIFFERENT. When I was spending every third week with my parents during my dad's treatments, I actually bought a second scale to keep at their house so I could continue to weigh myself with the "same" scale :P When I go to Norway/Denmark in May, though, no scale for 9 days. Whee! And I'll probably wait another week after getting home before stepping on my own since I truly believe travel weight is not real weight :P
I'm still not weighing myself regularly because my routine is off from normal still due to surgery recovery. Once I'm able to dress my own wounds and garment myself I'll be able to start showering in the mornings again, and then my daily weighing will be able to be back on track.
However, I'm joining in the post today because I DID do the "regular" routine on Saturday morning! I woke up, used the bathroom, weighed naked, showered, and then took progress pictures of my surgery recovery.
Last weight (11/27): 153.6
Current weight (12/9): 151.5
Next goal: 145 - normal BMI!
I know I've still got swelling from surgery(ies) but it feels awesome to be down 2.6 pounds since the day before my most recent surgery and down 13.3 pounds since my first reconstructive surgery in June. I'm still not quite back to my lowest ever which is listed in my signature, but I'm really super close! And it's nice to see TrendWeight giving me a goal achievement prediction date again. For a while there, it was like "yeah, you'll never reach your goal with the way your weight is trending." :P

It sounds like everyone is having a good week!!
IF... have an amazing trip!!
Traveling smaller: yeah, I can't wait! I have a trip booked in February and I am hoping to be down another 25 lbs... I should safely be out of seatbelt extender territory then!!! :)
Gwen, congratulations on your routines and losses. That's great!
I had a great week! So back in 2001, I had lost a bunch of weight, and my lowest adult weight was 242. A big goal of mine has been to get to that/get below that, which I have not been able to do again in my adult life. I've been watching the scale creep closer and closer all week, and today, I hit 242!!!! I am thrilled to be at my lowest adult weight that I remember. Now... onto beating it! :)
Have a great week everyone!
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.
