I'm Angry...

As I sit here - 174 lbs - 20 lbs heavier than when I started my weight watchers journey 2 years ago, I realize...IM ANGRY! I'm really really truly 100% mad at myself. I'm fat once again. My pants don't fit. My shirts are clinging to me. I can't stand looking at my double chin in the mirror. I'm mad that food has once again become my companion - non judgemental, always good tasting, always good feeling...until the next day when I can't put on my pants or look in the mirror. Why do I rationalize… Continue

WI Results & "Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, But Words Will Never Hurt Me" - or why this isn't true.

Okay, I am going to start with the positive! I had my group run - it went great! We ran 8 mins walked 1 - I will admit that it was a pretty easy run as the pace was slower than I usual run by myself and I usually run none stop - (that makes me sound full of myself as a runner hahaha). A lady even at the end of the run commented on how I made the run look easy - HA! What a sweetie!

Now, back to the negative - or the ugly.

1. I gain.

2. It was 1.8

3. I felt bad… Continue

April 30th 2009

Well nothing really happened today. I just stayed home with the baby, and got some cleaning done. I stayed on plan and didn't use any flex points, which is good for me. That's one of my down falls, always wanting to eat more. I'm trying to pick foods that are more filling so that I don't feel like have to have seconds at dinner. Speaking of dinner, I made this really good Mustard-Glazed Pork Chop Recipe from a weight watchers cook book. It was so good, I'll have to make that one again. I have… Continue

One More Day

Yes, that's right, one more day until my first half-marathon. I'm going to do it. I've been "training" for a marathon for years, and here I am, actually going to do a half.

My foot is ok. No pain on Tuesday and I was able to get an amazing upper body/core workout in. Yesterday, I decided to push my luck and take a test run. My shins hurt and my knee was screaming, but no foot pain. At least not until I stopped running. It felt a little sore on the walk home, but by the time I was… Continue

"Running" on empty

Before I start with my big problem (which is probably blown out of proportion anyways), I will start with my "big" accomplishment today. I was hungry for dinner when I came home from work, but I really needed to run some errands before I ate dinner. So I went to Target...can anyone guess what the problem was??? Of course the put the food court right in the entry, with the odor of popcorn wafting at you as soon as you walk in the door. I resisted temptation and went on with my shopping (or lack… Continue

WI & Triathlon Running Group

Tonight I have my WI - I am actually heading out the door right away. I also have my running group tonight. It is much nicer out this week - it was cold and somewhat rainy last week - and I wussed out. Not this week though!

I am thinking my WI is not going to be pretty. However, I am very glad that I did end up going last week to get that mean gain out of my way. Now this week (actually 5 days) will be starting from Sunday. I think I may gain - but oh well - tomorrow is the beginning… Continue

The Skinny Girls

So my kids and I stopped by the school where my mom works last week to see her. I ran into two girls that I went to highschool with....not just any two girls, but the "skinny popular girls'!! I was fairly skiiny and sorta popular in school, but not like these two. And the worst thing, is that they are still super skinny!! As I stopped to visit with them, I could just see their minds turning "Wow, has she really gotten fat!! What is wrong with her!" They complimented me on my cute kids and after… Continue

trying to pull myself out of this pit...

I have been PMS-ing this week, and it seems to happen to me everytime- I am totally grouchy with the kids (who demand a TON of patience anyway) and I am eating everything in sight. To add to things, I have some anxiety problems to start with and I have several things to think about: am having major anxiety because the baby has developed a fever today (we are supposed to travel to Palm Springs in 3 days and I potentially have three sick kids), I have a suspicious new mole on my chest (skin… Continue

Biggest Looser

And not in a GOOD WAY! I must confess. I worked up the nerve to go to WI today and as I expected, I had gained. (so I guess I should have titled my post Biggest Gainer then right? lol) Anyway, I'm feeling bummed but I will say that sitting at the meeting helped and I got alot of good suggestions on low pt foods so that was good. I'm really going to try and stick to my pts this week so I really can be The BIGGEST LOOSER next week. :) Thanks for all the tips coming in. I really appreciate it. I'm… Continue

Today is Operation Kick Butt!

I had a bad day yesterday. Not your typical ate a little too much bad day. My bad day was I ate everything. And by everything I mean everything. I quit counting calories and points at one point. At the end of the day I made myself do it though just for record keeping.

The worst part was I wasn't hungry or craving anything I ate. I don't even know why I decided to just blow it all. I wanted something and couldn't figure out what it was. So I ate a bit of everything and still wasn't… Continue

Spam on the Rise

I just wanted to address the SPAM issue yet again. First let me say my goal with this community was to create a supportive safe environment where we felt comfortable sharing our good and bad days with out the fear of judgment or negativity. And for the most part I think we, well YOU, have done that. The community is bigger and better then I ever imagined.

Did you know we had over 2000 members now? TWO THOUSAND? Dude! speechless I am, speech less.

However, there is a downside of…

Eating out Addiction

I have fallen back into one of my old addictions/harmful patterns. I have been going out to lunch almost every single day lately. At first I told myself it wasn't a problem I needed to blog about, because it's more of a money problem. Which is true, it is a HUGE money problem, we are living beyond our means and I am truly sick over it. But not sick enough to stop.

But then I got to thinking- WHY am I suddenly almost addicted to going out to eat? It's not because I get so hungry while… Continue

The Changing Power of Words

The first time I saw this quote (somebody else had posted it), it really resonated with me.

I remember thinking, "Wow - that is so true. I think about my weight everyday. I can't give up."

Yesterday I stumbled across this quote for the second time. It didn't have the same effect on me. I read it and thought, "Yeah, it's true", but it didn't resonate with me in the same way it initially did.

I think… Continue

The weight on my shoulders

So I wanted to turn the alarm off at 4:30am this morning but I forced myself to the gym because I needed to weigh-in. I have been going strong again for 5 weeks. Doing really good during the week with food, journaling and tons of exercise. The weekends I have been exercising and so-so on the food. The scale registered a 0 weightloss! I have lost 4 pounds in 5 weeks and have been stuck at 160 for the past 2 weeks. I know I am losing inches because my clothes fit better but I wanted the… Continue
