Weigh in Wednesday

Ok, so in order to promote healthy progress towards my 10 lb weight loss goal. I am going to have a weigh in Wednesday. I would love for anyone who is on the same journey to lose some weight to join me. Every Wednesday, I will check in with my progress, my exercise and my weight- and since we're women and I don't want to get caught up in the whole apples and oranges aspect of what people weigh, I thought we could use +1 or -1 etc...
So this Wednesday I am starting from scratch. I am way back to my starting point even though a few weeks ago I was doing well and had been-4. I know that I have been eating out a lot and indulging on the weekends so I can't act too surprised.

Wednesday Check in:

Breakfast: Kashi cereal
Snack: Kashi cheddar crackers: 100 cal
Lunch: Amy's Lentil Soup- 250 cal
Snack: kashi granola bar
Dinner: Cheese fondue appetizer and 3 glasses of wine...ooops!

Breakfast: Kashi cereal
Snack: Kashi Crakers
Lunch: Chicken noodle soup 240 cal
Snack: organic noodle cup: 100 cal
Dinner: Dinner at West Town Tavern, Lamb, potatoes, truffled potato chips flat bread, countless glasses of wine....

I think I am starting to realize that Dinners are my problem!!!!

Anyway, feel free to share if you want to participate. When I lost 20 lbs for my wedding I did a combination of 10 min arm exercises, recording my food and being concious of eating every few hours instead of three meals a day, and walking. This time around has been more challenging but I really hope to reach my goal. The cruise is in May- so I have 2 and a half months!
Good Luck to everyone who wants to lose weight with me!

I gained 19 lbs since the summer. I haven't figured out how. I don't think it was all those candy bars, cookies and cakes I ate. I have been on South Beach since Dec. 31. I have lost 9 lbs and have 10 more to go. Maybe you can be my motivation to stick with it. I love Kashi granola bars. I don't buy them because I will eat the whole box.
