Day 77 -24 Halfway there!!!

I'm so pleased! I had idly thought today that if I lost 6lbs tonight I would be exactly halfway to my target. I then immediately told myself not to get my hopes up as 6lbs is a lot to lose at this stage and my home scales aren't showing a great loss this week etc etc Anyway, as you can see, I lost the 6lbs and have now lost exactly 4 and a half stone which is halfway to my target!
I'm dead chuffed and it's just the boost I need heading into a weekend away. There's no way I'm going to be tempted to cheat now when I'm doing so well and am teetering on the the summit of the hill peering down at the downhill stretch now.... (Not that I think I would have cheated anyway as I have been pretty good apart from a couple of mouthfuls here and there...)
I must be knackered though as I picked up a pair of trousers and a top which people bring in when they've grown out of them for other people and bought all my week's foodpacks, some water flavouring and savoury drinks and even a magazine - then left the lot behind when I walked out! Grrr Luckily I have a spare week's foodpacks which I bought ages ago in case I couldn't make it to class due to bad weather (you have to think ahead round these parts!!). So, I'm ok for the weekend and can pick the rest of the stuff up on Tuesday night. Engage brain....
I'm too tired to type much tonight and need a clear head for packing or I'll end up with all the wrong stuff but hope you all have a great weekend and I'll be back in a few days!! I'm doing a little happy dance now and hope you all have good results too. Keep it up!
