"C25K is awesome- stick with it and it will take you far! Every time you feel like stopping, just SLOW DOWN and that will get through the time/distance you want. You will get faster over time, if that's what you are looking for, but the first…"

"Huge victory in having those clothes fit the way you wanted them to (or too big- awesome!). I'm glad you had that feedback on how you are changing your body and your health, even if the scale is not changing like you would like. Keep it up!!!"

Emily Fowler replied to Cindy M.'s discussion Weigh In Day in the group PointsPlus - Weight Watchers newest program....
"Okey dokey, that's more like it- down 3.4 lbs this week. Makes up for last week's +0.6 and the +1.2 from the week before. So, what was different? Biggest difference- no emotional eating on Mon & Tues like I had the two previous weeks.…"

Underestimating WW Points+

So, I looked in my handy dandy food guide and saw "Popcorn, 94% Fat Free, 5 cups, 1 Pt+." I thought to myself "That must be how much is in one of those big bags. I can eat that whole thing for 1 pt. Sweet!"Wrong on SOOO many levels. First off, according to the box I have, there are 2 servings of 7.5 cups each in one bag. To add insult to injury, there are 7 points+ in one whole bag, not the 3 you might think (15 cups = 3 x 5 cups, which means total pts+ = 3 x 1, right?).Ouch!So, I looked back…See More

"We reap what we sew...eating out 3 times (HIGHLY unusual for me- I'm usually more a 2x a MONTH, not 3x in a WEEK), working lunch (pizza) and a night of sad/mad at the world eating last night = 1.2 lb gain at today's weigh in. On the up…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I am a mom (active at my son's parent participation school), I am a wife (to a husband currently battling cancer) and I am a part time engineer. I am good at following a plan, but falter in maintenance. I have gained and lost the same 10-15 pounds many times since hitting Lifetime 8.5 years ago, most recently having lost it in 01/10 and regained it in comfort eating in the early days of my husband's diagnosis (07/10). I did couch-to-5K in early '09 and loved it. Fell off the wagon that summer, but came back to running in 01/10 with the encouragement of a couple of friends (we ran a 5.5 mi mud run in 03/10). I am currently training to run a 9K in November (trying to run 3x a week), trying to get a grip on the comfort eating (trying to get motivated to get back on plan), trying to figure out how to break the yo-yo of these same 10 lbs, trying to set a good example of exercise and healthy eating for my son, trying to help my husband maintain his health and just trying to keep my head above water.
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I stay active doing everyday activities, I'm a Running Fanatic, I'm new to exercise

Eating Out & Bleeding Points

Posted on February 27, 2011 at 9:03pm 1 Comment

I don't usually eat out all that often- probably a couple of times a month. It isn't a stand against eating out, it's more just that the cost adds up to fast, both in the wallet and on the scale.



This week, though, I ate out THREE times and, holy cow, that is a serious challenge to weight loss. I work part time and am never able to do "lunch with the girls" (I am an engineer, so there aren't that many females at my work, so this is a special occasion), but my son was at a friend's… Continue

Boot(ie kicking) Camp

Posted on February 19, 2011 at 12:48am 0 Comments

Back at the end of December, through a fudge-induced haze, I read an ad for a 10 week boot camp being offered in January.  It was quite a deal- 10 Saturday morning sessions for the bargain price of a $20 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley.  It's a good deal for the boot camp company, of course, in that they can tap into all of us New Year's resolution makers and maybe get some permanent clients for their regular boot camps.

 

I talked a couple of friends…

Shameless plea for votes!

Posted on February 18, 2011 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

I've noticed, the healthier I get, the more I'm willing to step outside my comfort zone...

That being said...

 



I entered a song writing contest and I am in the finals- there's a ringer in there who's head and shoulders above the rest of us (I freely admit to some really cringe-worthy notes- let's face it, there's a reason I'm an engineer and not a singer/songwriter), but I'm going to shamelessly ask you to vote for me anyway!!!



So, if you find it in your…
