Update and next week's THM menu

I stuck to week 1 of the FC (even though I almost cracked on the second FP day). Lost 2 lbs. I am .7 lbs away from being a healthy weight on the BMI calculator and 1 lb away from 40 lbs lost since starting the plan in January! I had a friend ask me if I'm going to celebrate when I hit to 40 lb. mark. My response?
every time I look in a full length mirror!

Before


After~ish


All while eating things like this!

I'll have better after pics when I reach my 40 lb mark.


That being said, I don't think I'm going to go for a week 2. I should've figured. I've never done the full 2 weeks. I'm a weakling. I did learn that I need to make exercising a more important part of my plan though. I think I'm nearing the end of my scale focusing days. I can only lose so many pounds. There is still much work needed though....toning, strength training, etc. So look for upcoming posts on exercise. For now, here is my freestyling menu for September 15-21.
