What did I do/buy this Thanksgiving and this weekend? (November 23, 25-26)

Hello, everybody! This week’s weekend update is special because it will also include how I spent Thanksgiving!

So, we’ll start with Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we didn’t go to LOCAunt’s and LOCUncle’s for Thanksgiving due to LOCMom and I coming down with colds, so we went out to eat since it was just the two of us! Check out the Thanksgiving food at our local restaurant, Lumberjacks!


Mmmmm, good stuff it was! I even had leftovers for the next day! LOCMom treated me to this delicious meal, so two thumbs up for her! πŸ™‚

And a little later, we hit the Black Friday sales at the mall! I managed to buy four tops that I usually wear for 5 bucks each and with a $10 off $10 coupon from JC Penney, seeing that two shirts were $10.00 in total, with that coupon, it was like getting two shirts free! In reality, the coupon made the shirts $2.50 each, but still, great deal! πŸ˜€

And *ahem*, I shrank a size! WOO HOO! My basic shirts I bought last year are OFFICIALLY too baggy on me! And everyone, I’m just going to keep getting smaller! πŸ™‚ Here are some before and after photos! The after is me in my new shirt!

I’m still stoked about the whole being down a size thing! πŸ˜€ This diet is working, haha. Or should I say lifestyle change? πŸ™‚

On Saturday, I went to the Spendypants Grocery Store to restock my diet food since I was getting low on food. I had to since I was tired of eating food that was not good for me all week. : ( But after Thanksgiving, I’m back on my diet and plan to keep going with it! My goal is to be 155 pounds by Christmas! I’ve got this! πŸ˜€

Money Spent on Saturday:

  • Perfect Pinch Chicken Seasoning – $3.69
  • Milk – $3.99
  • Bananas (3) – $0.96
  • Fuji Apples (2) – $1.15
  • White Mushrooms (3) – $1.01
  • Romain Lettuce (bulk size) – $3.99

Total Amount Spent:Β $14.79

Bah. I dislike going to the Spendypants Grocery Store to buy food since everything is expensive in there, but sometimes, I just don’t have a choice. : (

On Sunday, I stayed home and helped LOCMom put up the Christmas tree! After putting up the tree by myself last year, I just can’t sand putting up fake trees anymore. Especially big fake trees. If I ever get my own place in the future, I will probably just have a 4 foot fake tree and do limited decorating each year. Ah, my minimalist dream. πŸ™‚

And I just had dinner, so here is a picture of what I ate!


That salad, or hash, was about 446 calories. Yes, on my diet, I count my calories. πŸ™‚ It helps me lose weight by doing this since I was not eating as much calories as before, I found. Β O _O So if I keep this up, I’m sure to keep losing weight in the future and will someday reach my goal weight of 125 pounds! I’m currently in the upper 150 range weight wise and if I keep it up, my 155 weight goal will be reached by Christmas! Can’t wait! πŸ˜€

Money Spent On Sunday

Total Amount Spent: $0.00

So that wraps up another weekend! Today it has been rainy and cold, but tomorrow, things should clear up enough so I can walk again outside! I’m coming for you goal weight! > _<;;;

How was your weekend?

  1. Congrats on the weight loss. Great that you are seeing results. I’m in my late 40s and it’s become much more difficult to lose weight. Plus things are stressful at work so that doesn’t help. πŸ™‚

    Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. My husband was sick so he stayed home, and I went over to my mom’s. I was bringing part of the meal so I had to go! Anyway, it was still fun. The next day, I bought two pairs of jeans at the Macy’s Black Friday sale, marked down to $20 from $50. These are the only jeans that fit me well, and I got a great deal.

    I hope to get our Christmas decorations up this weekend. We have a 4 foot artificial tree, which is just the right size for our condo.


    1. Thank you! I hope to keep going with the wieght loss, but it has been hard to exercise since it has been so cold out. 😦

      Good score on those pants! I always try to buy my pants at Goodwill or on clerance if I can help it. πŸ™‚ Just like you did! πŸ˜€ Don’t need any right now though since I have too many of them already, haha. πŸ˜›

      4 foot trees are awesome! Not too big, not too small. They are the perfect size, I find! ^ _^


  2. You look great! I like the shirt you bought at JCP. I need to go shopping for some new clothes, but I don’t feel like it. That would probably change IF I lost some weight. I bought nothing on Black Friday or Cyber Monday. We actuallly went to Target to get eggs on Thanksgiving night, and it was entertaining to see people grabbing the TVs and wheeling everything around. No thanks! πŸ˜ƒ We’ve eaten out on Thanksgivibg before, and it’s nice not to have the mess!
