Yayyyy I'm a weener! We all were, right?

Don't forget to get out and vote today! I did already! Starbucks is giving out free tall house blends to those that come in with the "I voted" sticker on. My hubby and I went and got the free coffee and stayed away from the treats. Yay!

Congratulations JulieJ, Erin & Kierr!!! You rock!

So I weighed myself again this morning and I'm down to 215. Whew! So I'm going to use that as my starting point.

SW-215
Thanksgiving Goal Weight-209
Christmas Goal Weight-200

I voted last Thursday, and I'm so glad the day is finally here!! I am going to take my sticker into Starbucks and get my cup of coffee!

Jillnicole-love your new avatar. You look so pretty!

Have a great day, everyone!

To everyone else- Good luck! Have you all thought about what you are going to have for Thanksgiving? All my American friends are thinking about making a giant Thanksgiving dinner for all our Irish friends. I'll have to make a great vegetarian dish (but I'm also not eating dairy) or at least lots of veggies. Any suggestions?

Hi Tigger! I've told most of my family (Mom, Dad, sister, nephew, etc.). They've all been really supportive of my decision and I really wasn't expecting them to be. I've even cooked black bean burgers for them and vegan banana muffins. They absolutely LOVED them and I come from a very blunt family, so it wasn't just them being nice.
I think another reason they've been so supportive is that my aunt was recently in the hospital with heart trouble. She's 100 pounds over weight and eats very unhealthy. (Although she's even asked for some of my recipes.) I think they see how good this is for my body and are kind of interested in some occasional meat free meals themselves.
I wouldn't fear telling your family. There are so many good reasons to go veggie (cruelty, antibiotics in meat, etc.). Even though I'm from a traditional, southern family, they've been very supportive and interested. Best of luck when you tell your's.

Darby are you sure you want to change your starting weight? You've already lost 4 lbs if you don't change it! Let me know.

Julie ok just wanted to make sure

Glasgal yeah I cook 'vegan-vegetarian' friendly items for my best friend to try, she loves it!

Jillnicole-I think I'll keep 215 as my starting weight as the 219 was sort of "false" if you know what I mean. But thanks for asking!

HAley.. aww sorry, if it helps it was just regular coffee, not the fancy ones.

Chickpea.. Welcome back! Tom is a sneaky lil pest, but hey I feel like if I give him a couple treats he goes away and theres a new day to challenge myself You're doing great with your weight loss, as long as you dont go overboard, who cares about some PB cups

Hey ladies!! Weigh in is now on Thursdays! So be ready tomorrow

WTG girlies on the last challenge! You guys did awesome!

As for me, I have been NOOOOO good lately! Back on track today... scared to weigh in tomorrow... I didn't officially weigh in at the start of the challenge so tomorrow may be my official start weight if it has changed too much.
