7 pounds to go

As some of you know I have been on the Weight Watchers Band Wagon since May of 2009.
It took me quite a while to find out what works best for my weight loss plan. I'd say it took me until August of this year to really have it click. Since August I have steadily lost over 19.6 pounds. It took me a year and a half to lose 20 pounds before the lightbulb flashed above my head.
Since August I have lost every week that I've weighed in and I only missed one weigh in (I was in Phoenix). The past two weeks have been more frustrating, having only lost .2 and then .8. I mean, hey, its still a loss, but when you're losing 1-3 pounds a week on average those numbers with point (.) get to be your worst enemy.
I weighed in today. I usually weigh in Fridays around 11:45, but my Friday was so busy I decided I would have to go Saturday morning. Friday was a little tough. I wanted pizza all day (yes I still get cravings), but I powered through and had a pizza english muffin (3 points) for dinner. This morning I woke up to an even whiter winter wonderland than the night before. It took all my motivation to get Caderyn and myself all bundled up and into the car. I would much rather have stayed at home snuggled under blankets, watching cartoons and drinking coffee (me, not Caderyn). The roads were super yucky, but we made it across town to the weigh in location. Got inside, changed into my super light weigh in clothes (I'm superstitious) and stepped on the scale. HUZZAH! I'm back on track. I lost 1.2 pounds this week. 39.6 total. Can you believe I've lost almost 40 pounds and have only 7 pounds left to go to my goal? Can you believe I let myself gain that much weight when I was pregnant. Woof! Never again. I'm pumped. My goal is be at pre baby weight  by Christmas. I'm so close!
I'm trying to decide what I want to do once I reach that goal- besides drink a deliciously unhealthy milkshake.
I might splurge- if Jeff lets me- and buy a pretty new outfit. Or maybe I'll let Jeffy take me out to a swanky dinner. Who knows!

Wish me luck.

P.S. Does anyone else notice that I tend to use parentheses a lot (I like them).
