Losing Weight And Other Inconveniences

As you might know, I’ve been on Weight Watchers for a month or so now and I’m having success. Very sssslllloooowwwww success, but success nonetheless. I’ll do really well counting my points for a week or so and then there’s this party and that picnic and another get together and the points go to pot. But the weight is still on it’s way down and not up – so while I prefer the 1.5 pound a week loss, I’ll take .5 over nothing.

I’m in a bit of a pickle right now, though. My pants are starting to get a tad bit big. Which is great! But the next size down (and I have a closet full) is still more tight than I’m comfortable with. Which means I really need to watch the points and be sure to get my exercising in so I can get back into the next size down. Which also means Katie needs to stop baking yummables like the french vanilla cupcakes with double chocolate chip frosting she made tonight. So what if I bought the stuff for her to make it? I thought I had more willpower, but the smell was so delicious I couldn’t stop myself from eating one very small cupcake. Or maybe two. But they were small!

Yesterday was a joyous food day for me. You know how I was late getting to work because of all the running around I had to do before my morning really even started, right? Well I grabbed a Fiber One bar and my coffee on the way out, but totally forgot to take something for lunch. Since I was late getting in I didn’t really feel like leaving to get something and I just worked through lunch. Katie was on her field trip and Todd was in Tulsa so it was only Taylor and me for dinner. At 3:00 I texted him and asked what he wanted for dinner. He said Chick-Fil-A. For myself I ordered a charcoal grilled chicken wrap with fat free honey mustard and a small Cookies N’ Cream milkshake. And I went to bed with two points to spare! I don’t recommend foregoing lunch all the time, but it’s worth it for one of those treats every now and again!!

Today I did okay – not great, but not terrible. And I did get a fairly decent walk in. Tomorrow, however, is another day. Another chance for me to do great! I WILL be in that next size by the end of June! Oh wait. That’s only two more weeks. Hmph. That might be pushing it. How about by the end of July!! Yeah. That’s the ticket!

    It's never fast enough, is it? But at least you're on the way. That's more than I can say. I have no will power when it come to starting a good eating plan. I'm doing good to be sticking with the yoga. Maybe one day. Maybe.Good for you, and good luck!!

    Yay! Good for you. It is so hard, isn't it? I'm down 10 lbs from when I started back in… March?… and it is like pulling teeth. I still have 20 more to go to be where I feel good about myself and really healthy. And I really haven't even gone down a size yet either. What does that say about what I was wearing before? I'm not sure.

    Ooooh moaning, groaning, kicking and screaming all the way to my WW meeting. So not looking forward to it, especially during the summer. Who goes on a diet right before summer starts? Apparently I do. I lost 40 pnds in 3 months on WW doing the "forgot my lunch" and eating a good dinner. It works. Doctors might not like it, but I do. :)So, I will be joining you come Tues of next week. Woohoo, can you feel my excitment? lol

    You go girl!I am trying Alli, but I'm not sure it's working…I so want to loose weight! You know, blogging about it is a great idea! Probably keeps you motivated to have good stuff to share. Tell Katie to stop baking!

    It's a daily grind, but you've inspired me to keep going. I've been feeling a little sorry for myself since I'm not dropping my weight as quickly as my hubs. I know I won't. That's just the facts, ma'am. Still…grrrrr. Need to repeat, "I'm happy for him. I'm happy for him." We can't stop eating altogether, so we have to start making it work for us, and it sounds like you did just that. Well done!

    LOL! Love the picture. I'm with ya on the weight thing. Soooo frustrating. At least you're going down. I'm afraid I may be headed in the other direction. I lost some weight last year and kept it off for quite a while. Now, however….let's just say I keep shoving that pesky bathroom scale further into the black hole beneathe my bed.
