No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
disappointment .... comes from not losing enough when you are working so hard! In the past two and a half weeks I have ONLY lost .8 lbs ... now I know people will say hey that is going in the right direction ... but I have been working out 5x a week and eating my points or less ... i should see more weight coming off!
week 7 - .2

I just don't get how some people can lose 2lbs in a week ... what else can I do? how do I pick myself up from…Continue
So ... I am not even sure where to start ...
PART ONE : Trigger
This past weekend all my family and husbands family came in town for our son Matthew's 3rd Birthday party! I counted points and did really well ... I even aloud myself to have yummy dessert every night (within points). But when I stepped on the scale Monday morning ... I had gained 2lbs ... I was so frustrated (It takes me a week to lose 1.5 and I gain 2 by eating well within my…Continue
Week 6 .... -1.2 lbs (as of this morning ... I WI tonight at my meeting too)
So this is the point in a new diet where I lose steam ... I know this time will be different ... for several reasons:
1. Weekly Meetings
2. Weighing in infront of someone else
3. My Goals
4. I committed to do this for a year!
5. I have 2 sons (Matthew 3 and Issac 9 weeks) who I know will be harder and harder to keep up with ... and I want to be the mom…Continue
So this is straight to the point ... I lost 2.6 lbs this week and I got my 5% sticker!!!

week 2 - 0
week 3 - 1.6
week 4 -1
week 5 -2.6
Thanks for all the encouragement ... keep up the great everyone we can do this!
So today I was thinking about setting some goals for myself ...

10% 218.2 - a girls night out to dinner and a movie
pre-baby 207 - a mother's necklace
What are some rewards you have used?
So last night I went out with my best friend from college ... which was somewhat scary for me ... but I talked to her and made sure I knew where we were going ahead of time ... We went to Salsarita's I got the Bare Burrito ... to me it was almost like a shell-less taco salad ... I got refried beans, black beans, chicken, pico, cilantro, onion, guac and a ton of lettuce ... I also added hot sauce on it ... so good! It was actually their monday night special ... so good for the belly and good…Continue
Tonight I weighed in at -1 lbs.

So excited that I got my 10 lb star tonight! Now if I lose 2 lbs next week I will reach my 5% ...
So goal for tomorrow is to do the elip ... Sat go for a hike .... and keep moving the rest of the week!
I can do it ... any tips ?
(First off last night I found a workout set on the weight watchers page for Buff Brides ... even though I am not a bride I am going to do it ... it gives you the workouts to do with weights, bands or just yourself. I thought it would be a great way to get alittle extra something in at night while watching TV ... yesterday was tough ... I had to bounce back last night and today ... I feel great and today I have a wonderful plan ...)
Great morning Tomato and feta frittata and…Continue
So today was going great until after naptime ... we got alittle snack.
But instead of counting out some chips into a bowl I ate right out of the bag ... until it was almost gone ...
Now my belly hurts and it was for nothing ... its not even that I really like those chips ... I was just careless ...
so then I was like oh well messed up ... I'll go ahead and have a skinny cow ...
Now to be on points for the day I need to eat only 0…Continue

This week was difficult ... yet wonderful!
Two days after my second weigh in ... I was down 2lbs ... Ofcourse this brought on the idea I could have a big week.
Then I was weighing in every morning and it was going back up ... this was upsetting to say the least. But I used the Weight Watchers community to help me get through this ... and it stuck with the program. I also felt great this week ... from the inside out!
Tonight I weighed in at…Continue
