That is how I felt today when I looked down at the scale - 3.5lbs!!!!! I guess my body is just catching up with the past couple of weeks of 1lbers:) So, I am only 3lbs from my 2nd goal, which is 20lbs. I can't remember what my "reward" is when I reach 20lbs, so I need to go and look at my original post. I'm really nervous about this long weekend with my family. We are going to be eating at the Blue Bayou and Rainforest Cafe and probably lots of snacks and junk at Disneyland. I have to stay strong, because I have yet to have a week when I gained or didn't lose anything and I'd like to keep it that way. I've been trying to eat lighter this week so that I have a few extra calories saved up. At this rate, I might even reach my goal of losing 30lbs by my birthday. That would rock and make my 28th birthay extra special. I got this $10 "The Biggest Loser 2" exercise dvd at WalMart the other day and used it for the first time on Monday. I love it! It is totally exercise I like to do AND there are like 9 workouts to choose from, so you can customize your workout. On the menu you add the workouts to your list and then it plays them in that order. Isn't that cool? You don't have to keep going back to the menu and starting over. I thought it was a great deal for $10. I went to aerobics yesterday at the church, so I'd like to do my video again today. That would put me at 3 workouts -which is my goal for the week - and I still have 3 more days when I could possibly get in a 4th.

Now, onto other matters. I am so mad! I am reading this great book called The Memory Keeper's Daughter and I am half way through it and it is due at the library today! Man! I tried to renew it online, but there is a hold on it, so I can't keep it. If my family weren't coming I would just keep it through the weekend and pay the $.25 a day fine and finish it. However, I know I won't have much time to read, which means I won't finish it, so it's not worth the fine. I already waited 2 months for the book and I hope I don't have to wait another 2 months to get it back. You must read it, if you haven't. I have like 5 books from the library that I need to read and I know they'll have to go back before I have to time to read them. I did finish River of Secrets - one of the sequels to Goose Girl. I have the other sequel, which actually comes before River, but I wanted to read it 2nd, so now I am out of order and pretty much know what happens in Enna Burning, so I don't know whether to read it or not. My friend said she didn't like Enna as much as the other two, so I am tempted to skip it for now and go onto the other books I've got. Two of them are these vampire books written by an LDS author and my sister said they were really good. She's usually a great picker of good books. She is the one that suggested I read Phantom by Susan Kay - the story of where the Phantom of the Opera comes to be - and I loved it. I just found the titles. They are Twilight and New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. I'll let you know what I think of them. However, I am still depressed about the unfinished book that I must return to the library today. ::sigh::

Thanks for the book recommendations. I didn't know there was a sequel to Goose Girl. I really liked the first.

I can't believe how awesome you're doing with your goal. You are amazing--always my inspiration. I've been absolutely fanatical with my eating and exercise, and I certainly haven't seen so much progress so quickly. But I'll get there eventually, let's hope.
