…and I’m pretty happy about this one.

As of today, at 231.9 lbs. I have officially reached the 65 lbs. lost mark! This comes after weeks of struggling in the mid-230s so it’s a Milestone that’s definitely been earned. I was beginning to think I’d plateaued and couldn’t lose any more but I chose to add Wii Sports to the regimen a few nights ago, so that may have accounted for something.

Last night’s dinner was rather sinful but still within my Points range for the day. I had a McDonald’s hamburger and cheeseburger, no fries, and a bottle of water. I had been craving those mundane burgers for a while now so having them last night was definitely worth the wait.

And I’ve noticed just that: when you don’t eat certain foods while trying to lose weight, when you do have them they are especially tasty. Yesterday I also had some salted-in-the-shell peanuts and a few cashews, and it was as if I’d never eaten them in my life. Very satisfying.

Well, it looks like rain here in southern California today and possibly tomorrow. Hopefully things will clear up by Memorial Day, when I will be manning the barbecue for some barbecued chicken and ribs. Should be fun.

Have a safe and fun holiday, guys. And eat some good stuff–in moderation, of course 🙂
