Down another pound! wasn't the 3 lbs. I was hoping for, but I'm surprised I actually lost a pound considering I drank on Saturday night.

Brian and I had a rough week, so we left the babe with my mother, stopped off to watch Brian's brother play guitar in a band, then we were off to drown our sorrows with adult beverages at a local bar. Me with Stella Artois (the best beer ever, if you didn't know) on tap and Brian with dirty martinis and corona. We did a shot to really make us feel good. For anyone that knows about the calorie content in alcohol, especially beer, you'll know that this is not a good beverage choice if you want to lose weight.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped on the scale this morning, only to find out that I lost a pound! ::dances around the room to I'm So Excited::

I think I can lose another 2 lbs. before we leave on vacation. I'm sure as hell going to try!

Current goals and stats:
Current weight: 155
Goal weight: 145
Goal weight loss for the week: 2 lbs.
Other goals: Try not to put too much on while we're on our trip. I think I'll probably gain 5 lbs. back though

Check out the other McFatty Monday posts at Heir to Blair.

PS: This will be my last McFatty Monday post until March 7th. Good luck to everyone is the next 2 weeks! :)


  1. Oh no vacations are deadly for weight loss!! I hope you enjoy your time and i'll be looking for an update when you get back!!

    Great job on the one pound loss! When you are pleasantly surprised with weight loss it's the best. I lost 2 pounds the week before last and was def surprised!

    BTW I love that your man got the martini and you had the beer, haha :)

  2. Kudos for the 1 lb loss even though you had a hard week. And seriously jealous about your vacation. I can't wait to live vicariously through your photos!

  3. @Holls: I said the same thing to him when he ordered it lol! I said, "People are going think we're weird because you got the girly drink and I got the manly drink." His response was, "A dirty martini is not a girly drink! A dirty martini is a James Bond drink!" LOL!

    @Metta: Thanks! We'll definitely be taking a lot of photos to rub it in to friends. :-P

  4. Enjoy your vacation!!!!!

    & for some reason, I tend to lose weight when I am POSITIVE that I'll see a gain. & I love beer too much to give it up.

  5. I know you already got one but I gave you a Beautiful Blogger award too. Your blog is so f-ing adorable. Did you design it all yourself? Anyways, have fun on your trip!
