Weight watchers weigh in - week 9

So despite being knee deep in my kitchen painting project this weekend, (post coming soon!) I still managed to get my shrinking butt to weigh in at weight watchers. I lost another 2 pounds. My grand total so far is twenty pounds!

I'm very happy with my progress so far. I would like to lose another twenty pounds but I'm really not in any hurry. I can definately feel that my clothes are getting bigger .. or I should say I am getting smaller. It's so great to actually see results after working towards a goal.

I'm getting a little nervous about going back to school and staying on track as far as my diet goes. It's not easy sitting beside women the size of toothpicks eating whatever they want .. their time will come! I think the biggest challenge for me will just be preparing my food for the day. I am determined that I will do this the night before .. along with the kids lunches.

I've said this before only to find myself scrambling around in the morning trying to do ten things at once .. but this time I mean it! I've been looking around for a cute lunch tote for myself .. can you believe I've found nothing!! Ugh .. shopping in Winnipeg sucks I tell you.

I went grocery shopping on Friday with my son and you know what? He was so good! Now you might think this would just be expected of an eight year old. Well NOT mine. We have had our challenges with him over the past few years. 
I was so happy when I actually did all the grocery shopping for two weeks without wanting to sit down in the middle of the isle and cry my eyes out (or punch somebody in my way). Doesn't it just make you all fuzzy inside when your kids behave? It means SO much to me!

Anyway ... I found a great new treat ..

Personally I think Cadbury's makes the best chocolate on God's green earth. I got the chocolate mint variety as I am a lover of anything chocolate mint. They are 2 ww points each .. totoally worth it when you are needing something sweet. I snagged a box of these that where on clearance for 50% off .. works for me!
I realize this post is a little all over the place .. I've been up since 6am so I'm getting a lil' foggy headed by now! Have a great night!
