I had an awesome night out last night with my man. We went to a steakhouse and I had one of the BEST and TASTIEST steaks I've ever had in my life!!! I splurge with a few deep fried mushrooms, some incredible grilled shrimp on a skewer, and butter on my baked potato. So dinner was wonderful. I had to remind myself it was okay to splurge a little and enjoy my food guilt free. Breaking that thought in my head ... "if I enjoy myself I'll blow up to 300 lbs again" ... is difficult. Then we drove down to a gaming Casino nearby ... and while we didn't come home with any extra cash we BROKE EVEN!!! I was on a roll!!! It was so much fun! We rolled into home about 3 this morning!! Unfortunately my dog decided to wake me up so I'm going to go ahead and exercise. And ... my weight stayed the same. So, our Easter is a little non-traditional!! Today it's back to my "normal" eating and fighting the temptation to continue to splurge. I almost forgot ... I wore a pair of my "skinny" jeans last night. They fit wonderfully. I'm not "done" losing yet but I am feeling good!! Have a wonderful Easter my friends.

Good for you for giving yourself a bit of treat last night! I would have been stuffed after all that food! And congrats on your winnings! I splurged a bit last night too and we had sushi for dinner. It was soooooo good!

You figured photo bucket out :-) my turn next. You even got fancy with a photo that changes. Look at you, how much weight you have lost. You are not going to gain that weight back because of a birthday meal and you have to know that in your heart. Your dinner sounded wonderful, I am having steak today. Yummy!

You look amazing! WOW! What a difference those 40 pounds made. You look so much healthier and happier. I am having a hard time describing exactly what I see in your smile in your current picture. It almost like, you look... free. You look very content and peaceful. I'm so happy for you!
