Default Countdown to Matrimony! 150 by May 25!

Hello everyone! I am a 50 year-old female. I have been a member here since January 2010, when I first began my journey toward looking and feeling better. It took me about 9 months to lose 41 pounds by using calorie counting and exercise. I got within 10 pounds of my goal (140) and just stalled. Over the last year, I have fought with about 6 pounds, give or take. As of last Friday, I was at about 156.

I am getting married in a small ceremony at my home on May 25th. I had started out this year with the intention of reaching my goal weight by then, but have not been successful. So I am just going to do my best and shoot for 150 by my wedding day. I fit comfortably into my dress, so that isnít an issue. I just want to get back to my original low weight by then and hopefully continue down into the 140s and reach my goal. If I do not make it to 150, the world won't end, but I want to get as close as I can.

Letís see how I do! Please join me if you like!

Today I did a 4 mile Leslie Sansone video before work.

Packed salad and fruit for lunch and snacks, with oatmeal for breakfast. So far, so good!!

Hey Penguin, long time, no see!!!! Thanks! Sunshine, thanks and I hope to report those 6 pounds gone by the end of all this!

I've done well today. Now I will be going home and fixing supper for my two sons and older son's girlfriend. I am trying a new recipe and lightening it up a bit.

Thanks everyone! It was a busy day at work and I'm just now checking in. One of the reasons I slacked off of posting on this forum in the first place is because I got a different computer at work and it is so SLOW!! I just got frustrated trying to write long posts and just got out of the swing.

Anyway....did good all day with food; the usual oatmeal, salad, banana, grapes. Exercised 3 miles this morning with one of my Leslie Sansone DVDs. I had leftovers from supper last night. I had made a pasta dish that I attemtped to lighten up. Not sure how much lighter I made it, so I tried not to eat too large of servings. It was bowtie pasta with mushrooms, turkey smoked sausage, brocolli and a cheese sauce (low fat shredded cheddar). I also used 2% milk in the sauce. I had steamed carrots with it tonight. Not the best choice of a meal, but it was really satisfying and I really wanted something hearty. Going to try to veg up the rest of the week!

I had a "cup of cake" (recipe I posted on the Foods thread here the other day) at about 150 cal.

How was everyone else's day?
