I had a very good week for food and exercise.

Tom and I made every single one of our meals except for dinner at a party on Friday (where I ate reasonably, with small treats in moderation.) It was a St. Patrick's Day party, so I wore a green blazer (which I need to bid goodbye - it is too big to wear anymore) and my new polka-dot shirt I bought on Thursday. The way that it's cut, you get good view of my shoulders, which are shaped pretty differently than they used to be.
We also exercised 6 out of 7 days:
Tuesday 3/15 - 90 minutes of class at Slimmons
Wednesday 3/16 - 60 minutes of swimming at YMCA
Thursday 3/17 - 90 minutes of class at Slimmons
Friday 3/18 - 60 minutes of swimming at YMCA
Saturday 3/19 - 60 minutes of swimming at YMCA
Sunday 3/20 - rest day! Though I did a lot of housework.
Monday 3/12 - 60 minutes of swimming at YMCA
So it shouldn't be surprising that my body responded. I'm down 4.2 pounds, for a total of 33.3! That's 1/3 of the way to my first goal. Plus my BMI is down 2.08 points! That doesn't sound like a lot, but it takes a LOT of loss to lower BMI.

Here's to another week of good work, and to the one that begins today. We don't have any restaurant meals planned, and we're aiming for 7 days of exercise this week. If I lose, I lose, and that's swell, but the changes we've been making have made me feel better, and that's the most important thing.
