I totally understand what you mean! Seeing that big first digit change is HUGE and I am looking forward to it as well. I get excited about even the middle digit changing. You said you were going out of town... I find it easier to eat out at common restaurants and use your dining out book to decide what to get in advance - rather than eating in people's homes where you don't know how many points anything is. Good luck this week! Here's to your weight beginning with a "2" soon!
