halfway point

hello, world. i have been dreading writing this...not for any particular reason, just because the couch has been looking so much more comfortable. : )

let me start with pictures from last week.
 i believe that was my 4.6 or 4.8 lb loss. that put me at 30.2 lb. overall.

for some reason, i was on a pasta kick last week. i made much more than i needed to last monday and had the leftovers for three or so nights. jacob thought it was weird but i just like my pasta. my favorite way to serve it is with peanut sauce and a bit of sriracha. if i am feeling fancy, i will even sprinkle on roasted sesame seeds. below is italian style with some (lame) ragu and shredded mozzarella cheese.
at last saturday's weigh-in, i was down another 3.2 lb or so, which put the total up to 33.2 lb now. i was SUPER surprised that i lost so much, especially after the big loss from the previous week.

this past sunday, jacob and i went to another easter celebration at his mother's house and a bunch of her family. i did fine while we were there but once i got home, i had a hard time keeping my hands out of the giant marshmallows that jacob found when we were at target. they were intended for s'mores but we never got around to making them.

here are just a couple of shots from the day. we will start with the three bald men (not to be confused with the three wise men...) trying to get a kite out of the tree.
 then one of jacob and me after playing bags.
pretty sure this is the first photo of us since we went to new york last summer. he is not the biggest fan of having pictures taken. it generally takes much convincing.

newest pictures from three days ago.
 i may or may not be sucking in just a little. ; )

finally, a quick look at our DELICIOUS dinner from last night. jacob used my mom's recipe on some flank steak along with ridiculously large salads, corn, and garlic toast.
i think that is about it, news-wise.

as i said in the title of this post, i am about halfway through this diet process. the top of the healthy range for my height requires me to lose about 30 lb more. i know eventually that i will plateau so i am trying to enjoy how easily the weight is coming off right now. i also know that i need to exercise (which i know i talk about in pretty much every post) and that i am really just making excuses to avoid doing it.

if i have too many giant marshmallows this week...maybe a walk will be necessary before saturday's weigh-in.
