My in laws invited us to eat chinese food, I didn't want to be a stick in the mud so I went. I don't really like it, I had a few pieces of chicken and some mashed potatoes, I avoided the sodium filled fried foods that everyone else ate. I did eat some grapes and a scoop of ice cream. I am starving and it's 10:30 but I am not going to snack like anymore. I came home and ate a couple of ritz crackers and 1/2 piece of banana nut bread. Tomorrow is Sept 1, a new month and new week. I want to do… Continue

I love weekends dont get me wrong, I love being able to get up in the morning without and alarm clock, I love being able to clean my apartment, get things done, spend time with friends, and to just do what I want. But then I hate the weekend because of the DUMB things I do food wise. Why cant I just say no, or stop after one thing, but no I have to take it to the next level. When at a BBQ why cant I just have the damn chicken without the fatty potato salad, the baked beans, the chips etc. etc.… Continue

My weight went down again this week so,I guess its a good thing. I guess I should complain a loss is a loss right. I've not walked or ran in over 10 days now. I've not felt like doing much of anything lately. I don't know whats wrong with me I've been so depressed. I think alot of it is a lack of sleep. I need work on that. I need to be asleep at least by 10pm at night. I think thats plenty of rest. I have started doing the Hundred Pushup challenge,lunges 3x's a week 3 sets of 15 reps each. I'm… Continue

Hello to all...I know I've been a no show in the blog world...I have been so busy. Between work, kids...one starting high school with swim practice, etc, etc. I am happy to report that I started that benefit at work with WW. I have been on plan and tracking points. I had gained a little before starting and weighed in at 171.8 my first week. I have lost 5.4 pounds in 2 weeks. I am super excited about it. I am really pleased with this benefit that work is providing and I am taking full advantage… Continue

More thoughts on changing up my eating...
1, Eat normal ww food this week. Choose protein over carbs whenever I can. I'm not going to stress out this week or make any drastic changes. I'm going to count my carbs each day to see how I'm doing.
2. When I go grocery shopping next week, I'm going to look for some low carb. stuff. If it seems like something that I could do, I will buy a few items and try them out. Make more plans from there.
Anyway, just been doing a lot… Continue

o.k. I just got back from my 7 hours of partying and it was a lot of fun, I think I may still be feeling the affects of it in fact. Just put my 3 year old and the husband down for a nap, although I hope my daughter stays out for the night since she did not nap and when to bed late last night. The party was a lot of fun. It was held in a sushi restaurant/nightclub and it was beautiful and great. The company was wonderful and the service was friendly. Lets just say I trully enjoyed… Continue

This is so cool, all I need is another website I spend countless hours on reading, but I know it's for positive reinforcement. Well, I keep saying to myself that everyday will be a new day. I am surrounded by food all of the time. My family loves to eat and loves to bake. Today my mom made homemade banana nut bread. I calculated the recipe in sparkpeople, ready for this?? One serving 26 grams of fat and 456 calories!! It must be the oil. That's a meal. This is what I constantly think of, but… Continue

I have been thinking lately about how I did it. How did I lose 60 pounds? How did I stay on track and stay so focused? Lately, even maintaining has been so difficult for me. I am so tempted by junk food. I get off-track so easily and give myself the excuse that I will start tomorrow. I am so proud of myself for what I have accomplished, but I feel like I don't even know that girl anymore. I need to find her within me, and have her slap the current me to wake up. Wake up or these 5 lbs are going… Continue

Hey all... Just a quick check in!
I'm still hitting the elliptical and getting my butt WHIPPED! Yesterday my 1/2 marathon training schedule called for a 5 mile endurance run, which I obviously cannot do since my leg is still less than fully operational. I could probably push it and not cause more damage, but, I'd rather err on the side of caution and be able to run the 1/2 in November!! Anyway I don't know how accurate the elliptical or treadmill are for mileage (does anyone know?),… Continue

Alright, so I was making my espresso this morning and it was so tasty!
I made sugar free Torani Cinnamon, sugar free Torani Caramel and sugar free Torani white chocolate - it was like a delicious cup of Cinnabon wickedness with just THREE POINTS!
I had 2 eggs, (2) 2 strips of turkey bacon (2) and a pinch of cheese (1)
I put that all in a Mission 96% fat free tortilla (2) - I ended up actually feeling sick (THANKS TOM Grrrrrrrr - lovely time of the month) so I took the turkey… Continue

I only lost .6 this week but I'm just happy I didnt gain anything! TOM was here and I managed to eat alright until last night when I went to the movies with my mom. We saw Indiana Jones at the cheap theatre and it was really good! But I had one box of sour jack, half of my moms popcorn and then a box of milk duds! oh my goodness!!! I just kept telling myself it was okay bc that was my supper. oh well its a new week.
Although the beginning of this week hasnt started off the best. I… Continue

I just stopped myself at 4 French Toast Sticks. Just 4. There are 4 more still sitting there, but I am finished. It may seem stupid to be celebrating such a small thing, but to me that is an amazing accomplishment after the last few months of eating whatever I wanted and however much of it I wanted. I feel like I am starting over even though I have been a Lifetime Member for over a year.
I got up this morning and went out for a run. I am almost starting from square 1 with that too. Last… Continue

HI ladies, just wanted to say thanks for the advice and info on the ways to keep track of points, even though I must admit I am not a weight watchers memeber. I was years ago and from that experience know how to use points etc. but I am not an active member and so am giving it a go on my own. Although I have to say now that I found this I don't feel so alone, its awesome!
o.k. so today I have a full day (8hrs) of parties and am a bit concerned as to what I'll be eating considering it… Continue

Ok so yesterday I actually ate exactly as I planned, and I know if I can keep it up this is the kind of diet that's going to get me where I want to be. For breakfast I ate a bowl of Cheerios in almond milk with banana, had half of a fiber and flavor bar, and drank my Essential Greens. Then, for the rest of the day I ate two meals, and didn't snack! Snacking is a big problem for me. I often read that eating 5 small meals a day is great to keep your metabolism up and yadda yadda, but I cannot… Continue

Not only did I manage to take a 38-minute walk while listening to Roni's latest podcasts, but I also ate well all day.
I actually ate 27 Points, but when you subtract the 2 APs I got from my walk, I'm right-on again! Woo-hoo. I need some successful days after having such a rough start to my week. Hopefully I'll still be able to salvage my WI.
The tasty recipe I promised you is an Italian zucchini bake. I took an idea I found on Spark People and ran with it. It's lower in… Continue

So I made it to CA this morning, and everyone has been super complimentary of my efforts in the last 6 weeks (I was home 6 weeks ago). However, I have let success go to my head and eaten like total crap!!! Here is a rundown, so I can get it out of my system:
B - Jack In the Box Breakfast Jack and hash browns
S - donut
L - Carl'sJr. Chicken Sandwich with fries
D - Little Caesar's pizza and crazy bread
S - vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup

o.k. so this is very new to me and I'm not sure I know what I'm doing but I think its like keeping a journal only it's on line and other people can see it. but I think I'm going to try to ignore the part where other people can see it and just be honest. I am starting this because I think it's a good way to try and be accountable for my days, not only food wise but life wise. We are only here once and why not try to live consiously and the best way I can think of doing that is by being… Continue
