197.6 now...ONEderland

That's up .2 from the week prior...so I'm still struggling a little bit this winter with the weight loss. Still not moving much...too busy being COLD!
My sister said she experienced the same thing when she lost bunches of weight. So I went out and bought some sweaters at the Macy's President's day sale. I'm toasty now and no longer wish to curl into a tight little ball of warmth.
Jef and I went on a nice date day this past Saturday, walked all over the "off State Street" streets to see what the off streets of the downtown strip have to offer. It was a fun exploration involving some herbal tea, a folk musical instrument shop, a bead shop I wanted to check out but is now under renovation, a spiritual shop where we saw some really fun greeting cards. That shop was just off the parking garage where we parked the motorcycle so we strolled through on the way to the street.
We also had a wonderful late lunch/early dinner of authentic French crepes here in town. They were almost just like mom used to make. mmmmm mmmm so good. And not too bad in calories as I was careful about what I filled them with.
We walked for at least 3 hours so I definitely got some exercise in that day. I felt like it the next day. :D

Still too dark after work and in the middle of tax season, I don't often break for lunch. I need to do that and WALK.
Gearing up...cheer me on? encourage me? berate me? kick me out the door?
