Confessions Of An Addict!

Let me start by saying, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was very nice and peaceful!
I didn't realize it's been just about a month since I've been on here! I hopped on the scale last night and promised I would get back to eating healthy! I didn't like the number, at all! I thought I was doing so well not writing everything down, but I was dead wrong!!!
It's actually been quite a bit of stress eating lately, unfortunately! Our beloved beagle mix, Tod, has been diagnosed with cancer. My husband is in a state of denial and now we are going for a second opinion tomorrow. I want the vet to be wrong as much as he does, but I'm not getting my hopes up! So, there's my stress! Oh, and I quit smoking! Doing ok, still haven't had even a puff! It's only been 3 days, but it's 3 days without a cigarette! I'm taking Chantix and it seems to be helping, immensely!
I noticed my clothes were getting tight, again and KNEW something wasn't right! Nope, it wasn't! This time, I am DETERMINED not to go over my daily points. And to eat a LOT less bread! That seemed to help last time, I just didn't stick to it! I know I can, I know I can!
Well, have a good one!

*Back On Track!*

Ok, I did it. I hopped on the scale this morning and peeked out, and was so ecstatic! I lost 2.5 lbs. from last week! I knew I could do it! It was NOT an easy battle, to try and stay on track, but I accomplished something!
Because it's winter, I've noticed that it's much harder for me to keep drinking my water! Has anyone else had this problem? Any solutions?
I'm not sure anyone is reading this anymore, and I can't say that I blame them, I never seem to know what to say on other people's blogs except to agree with someone else and I don't want to sound lame! UGH! Oh well.
If anyone is readin this, I hope you are having great success at losing your demons!

Wednesday, November 14, 2007


Well, I know i'm supposed to get on the scale this morning, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it! My heart doesn't seem to be in it this time around, and I WANT it to be! I'm not sure what to do!! I'm thinking about joining WW Online and hope that helps! Does anyone else utilize the online program? Any pointers to help me get back on track? Man, I hope so! I definitely cut down on the bread this week. I bought the English Muffins and used those, mostly. I cheated more than I wanted to this week, which is another reason I'm fighting the scale! UGH!
My niece called this week and said she is getting married May 23rd, 2008. That gives me the time frame to lose everything I want to lose, but it's not helping!! UGH, I just want to cry and eat something terrible! Instead, I will go heat up my WW angel hair marinara or whatever it's called! I have off Sunday from both jobs and I AM going to do the little quiz thing from you, SuperJayman, PROMISE! Hopefully, I'll be able to figure out creating my page a little better, too!
Well, gotta go, still working and don't want to get into trouble!

Day One, Week One . . . . Again!!

Ok, so I hopped on the metal devil this morning, and was pissed at what he had to show me, BUT, I know it is my own fault! I gained enough! So, starting completely over. I had to rush out the door this morning so I could take my time getting to work and NOT hit another deer, and left my jacket and WW journal behind!! :( But, I remembered my big jug of water!! :) Which, I proceeded to drink most of in a 4 hr. period!! Very proud!!
Ok, time to back OFF the bread again! I had 3 already today! UGH! Ok, Ann, you CAN do this, you did it before, you can do it again!
I made two eggs, scrambled, with a LITTLE bit of swiss cheese mixed in, and then came the 3 pieces of bread!!! *SMACK* Ok, Ok, I will do better tomorrow, one day at a time!!
Ok, til next time! Love you guys!

Hey Everyone!!

Ok, I WILL be back officially on Monday. I did a weigh-in of sorts last week, and I had gained 6.7 pounds from the last time I had been on, which was about a month. So, not bad, but definitely should have been better! The reason I didn't get back on sooner, is, money has been a little tight and didn't have the money or the 'right' food. I was still trying, but not like I should have been! I am going to the grocery store tomorrow, it's about an hour away, (the prices are SO much cheaper than up here!) and will be back in full swing as of Monday. I am completely starting over, as in week 1 and so on.
Money is still tight, but we figured it out. Halloween morning, my husband and I were literally hit by a deer. She caused $2400.00 worth of damage and we have a $500.00 deductible!! But, we returned a washing machine we were supposed to pick up at Home Depot and had most of it from that! Thank God! We didn't want to return the washing machine, but, since I do have one that works right now, my car is definitely more important!
I hope you are all well, and pressing on! I will sit down and read your blogs very soon! My hours at Home Depot have been cut in half since I am a part-timer and I have more time! :)
Looking forward to reading about you all again! Take care, and until Monday!!

i Am StIlL aLiVe!

First of all, thanks SuperJay for asking where I've been! That was nice!

Second of all, I'm hiding! :) Well, sort of! After my gain, I was so humiliated, I didn't want to ever blog again! Then, I went on vacation and just got back on Tuesday.

I made a promise to myself NOT to get back on the scale until November 1st! I don't know what I weight right now, but I'm hoping by the time I get back on the scale, I will be a little lighter! Who knows, maybe it will all backfire on me!

I haven't had a chance to read what's been going on with all of you, and I'm so sorry, I hope you are all doing F-A-N-T-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!! I'm sure you are! I will try and write once a week, again, but no promises until my next weigh-in!

Take care everyone!!!

Friday, September 14, 2007


Well, it's my first gain! I refuse to put it on here because of the self-humiliation! It was my own damn fault! I didn't go over in points, I'm sure of it, but I still gained. So, I guess maybe I did! I don't know! Oh well, better luck this week, I guess!
I am n a wedding on Sunday and I know what we are eating and I think I'll just take the entire salad bowl back to my seat and eat that! :(
Well, I hope you are all doing well and having fun!

Wednesday, September 5, 2007


No cheating this week and it paid off! I lost 5.5 lbs!!!! It was definitely a struggle, but Mike really helped me by NOT asking to go out to eat or suggesting he go grab a pizza! It was just as much a struggle for him, as it was for me. Keeping regular bread out of the house paid off in a big way!
Went to the doctor today and she was so excited! I've lost 22 lbs since I last saw her in March! I still have some work to do with my cholestrol, but I'm not fighting taking medicine anymore. Everything went down, which is almost good. My good cholestrol went down as well, and that's the bad part! I just raised my risk of heart attack from 4.70 to 5.31!! Not enough exercise! I told her I would go on the medicine this time as well as start working on my Gazelle. This is definitely a slow and painful journey! Next time I see her we will be discussing quitting smoking but she wants to get my cholestrol medicine going, first. She couldn't believe she said that, but she also knows how stressed out I am with one of my jobs and knew it wasn't the right time, yet.
Well, 19 more days and I'm going to visit my sister, again! My nephew and I are planning on going grocery shopping as soon as I get there to make sure I have some proper things to eat in the house, fantastic!!!! It will be a big help, I'm betting! :) She also has one of those Ab Lounger things and I'm going to use it while I'm there! I think there will be somewhere I can walk, but not positive as she has moved since my visit in May.
Well, I hope you are all pressing on and feeling fabulous!
Wanted to leave you with this quote....thought it was cute:

112 TO GO!!

I can't believe I lost weight this week! I just can't!! I hopped on the scale yesterday and it said i'd actually gained 4 pounds!! Is this actually possible? I've never had that happen before!

A loss is a loss! I'm glad to see results, even if it IS at the lower end of the 1-2lbs a week scale. I am committed to stay on track this week! I have to eat more vegetables, they help fill me up and are zero points! I add some Molly McButter and they are even better, and still FREE!

I did find out today, though, that a bagel is 5 points! The WW book says it's 3, but not the ones I'm eating I guess! I only have bagels (a RARE treat!) and 100 Calorie English Muffins in my house this week! NO BREAD! It is harder for me to make a sandwich with an English Muffin! I have a sneaking suspicion that if I just cut down on bread I will lose more weight! You see, I have a bread ADDICTION and know that I need to carefully watch my intake. I used to eat 6 pieces of bread/toast at almost every meal! It's no wonder I weighed 300 lbs once upon a time!

I have also committed myself to working out on my Gazelle at least twice this week! It's actually a good place to take out my frustrations, too! I'm not doing too bad on my water intake, most days. Milk is another problem. We drink 1% instead of skim (just can't do it) and it's still 2 points! UGH! I will learn a balance, soon, I hope!

Does anyone know how many servings of fruits/veggies are in V8 Splash? I found the Diet version, VERY GOOD, and it's ZERO POINTS for one cup! I was just wondering how many servings, if any, that I'd count for this!

I go to the doctor next Wednesday and I've lost weight since seeing her. She freaked when I'd just lost 8 pounds, so I can't imagine how she'll react to 20!!

Does anyone else have negative self-image issues? People tell me I look slimmer, but I can't see it! Will this ever change? Someone told me that it's good that I don't see it cuz it will motivate me to keep going, however, as you can see by my last blog....not sure that's always the case!!

Ok, here's a little more humor for my girls:

A woman goes to the doctor for her yearly physical.
The nurse starts with certain basic items.
"How much do you weigh?" she asks.
"115," she says.
The nurse puts her on the scale.
It turns out her weight is 140.
The nurse asks, "Your Height?"
"5 feet, 8 inches," she says.
The nurse checks and see that she only measures 5'5".
She then takes her blood pressure.
And tells the woman it is very high.
"Of course it's high!" She screams,
"When I came in here I was tall and slender!
Now I'm short and fat!"


How come when you mix water and flour together you get glue. . . . ?
and then you add eggs and sugar. . . .


Where did the glue go?
You know darned well where it went!
That's what makes the cake
Stick to your BUTT!

We all need a good laugh, keep on smiling!!

I'm lost!

I apologize ahead of time for writing in red. I guess it kinda matches my mood, along with black. I have been reading a lot of your blogs and I am so happy for all of you!! I know the strength and courage that it takes to change our diets to become healthy, happy people and sometimes, I ask myself if it's really worth it!! I mean, whats it really going to hurt by eating that double cheeseburger and french fries, anyway? Is anyone besides me really going to know? No, not unless I tell them, right? But, it will hurt, every single day that I add those pounds on, not just physically, but emotionally as well. I eat when I get stressed and even when I'm sad. It's not the fact that I'm eating, It's WHAT I am eating. Michael has been trying to help more and more, like not asking to go out for pizza and stuff, but I know it's not easy on him, either. He doesn't like veggies and likes all the stuff I can't eat! It's so damn frustrating, and I just want to give up! My true friends tell me that they can definitely see a difference in the few pounds I've lost, but I just don't see it. That upsets me and makes me want to go eat something terrible! I just don't know what to do anymore! I got on the scale a day early and of course it wasn't kind. It's my fault, ENTIRELY, but I keep eating the crap I shouldn't be! I think since I've started WW, I've had ONE WEEK of staying entirely on track! That's 4 months of cheating! I just don't know what to do, how to help myself to stop cheating! I don't excercise, either. I mean, I look at my Gazelle every day and think, Yup, gotta get on it! Yeah, I'll do that later. And, later never happens!
Well, I go to the doctor next Wednesday and I've lost just about 20 lbs since my visit in March. I'm sure she'll be happy for me, but I'm not sure I really care.

A Little Humor

One for the girls

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, Please no bags
And please lift my butt before it sags.
Please no age spots, Please no gray
And as for my belly, Please take it away.
Please keep me healthy, Please keep me young,
And thank you Dear Lord, For all that you've done.

One saggy boob said to the other saggy boob: "If we don't get some support soon, people will think we're nuts."

Hope these make your day.

Friday, August 24, 2007


Wow! I am SO glad it's Friday! I am so friggin' exhausted! I only work about 50 hrs or so between the two jobs, but still! My day starts at about 4:30 and I finally go to bed around 10! Anyways.
So far today, I made an omelet of two eggs, broccoli, onions and green peppers! I didn't eat any toast (of course, I didn't have any bread to eat!) and then for lunch I made a pasta salad of mini bow ties, carrots and corn (it's premade from Schwans) and then I added about 1 1/2 T. of Mayo ( no light, didn't have any!!) and about 2T. of grated Parmesan Cheese and then sprinkled Mrs. Dash and Season Salt on it. Let it meld together for a few hours....MAN, was that good! I think it was around 9 pts as I had two cups of pasta stuff. I think I have 7 points left and I don't know what I'm going to eat. Maybe a Schwan's pizza. They have 7" pizza's that are only 4 points for the whole thing. They have a whole-wheat crust and are a little bit bland, but oh well, it's something!
Has anyone else had a problem when they dropped one point? I can't seem to get it right! I used to never even eat all of my points, and now it's hell trying not to eat MORE! UGH! I think I was doing better planning before, maybe that's what it was. Hmmm.....have to figure that one out some more!
Well, have a good weekend all!
P.S. Do they have a 'Sneaky Barbie'? I think that's me....I still sneak snacks and don't always write them down!

Wednesday, August 22, 2007

That's Better!

Ok, much better number from the 'Metal Devil' this morning. Which also put me in a more positive mood towards my weight loss goal! I CAN DO IT!!! I treated myself to Subway today. The treat part was that I put cheese on the Turkey Sub! LOL Oh well, such is life.

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

That's it....I QUIT!!

No, not really, but I want to! I am chaning my weigh-in day to Wednesday. I've had it. I lost .4 and that's not good enough! I am sick of trying to lose weight, I really am! It's so hard and I don't see the results, although my friends do. I'm just not sure I believe them, I think they are just telling me what I want to hear. UGH! ANOTHER pity party, I'm sick of this. It really is a slow and painful journey, isn't it? I know I will get through this, it's just taking longer than I wanted it to. I am still trying to do this on my own. I have seriously thought about trying Alli, but I know that isn't going to really teach me anything! I also know, and have yet to follow through when I need to, that I have to get on my Gazelle at least 3 times a week to start my exercise routine. Ok, I'm going now, maybe I'll find a HUGE something naughty and eat it!! No, I'm not really going to do that, I promise!!

Wednesday, August 15, 2007

Better Today!

Well, I am in a much better mood today and have a more positive outlook on my weight loss, today at least! I spent 20 minutes on my Gazelle today! I am so PROUD of myself! The digital thing is dead as I need batteries so I just watched TV for awhile and refused to look at the time for quite a while! When I finally looked at it, I had been on for 15 min. and made myself stay on longer! But, because I looked at all, it made the time go slower afterward. Gotta figure out something different for next time!
I went over my daily points by 8 last night! :( Was doing very well, had one point left and then my husband asked if I wanted half of his French Bread Pizza! I should have said NO! UGH! Oh well, must remember to take those off of my flex points!
40 more days until vacation! Thank god the beer I drink is only 1 point! LOL Must try harder to keep track this time!

Monday, August 13, 2007

No Change!! :(

Well, I have had my first weigh-in of no change. I guess that's better than a gain, any day! Well, I want to change my WI day, but I don't think it will help me! I need to learn to eat the 'right' way, every day with an occasional cheat, not meaning once a week or so! UGH!! Oh well, I must learn this lesson in order to continue losing weight!
I may have started my hairdresser on WW too! She was told by one of her clients that it doesn't work, but I have actually proven them wrong! She knows what a struggle this is/has been for me and sees the positive results and wants to see them for herself! That makes me feel good, I think!
Only 42 more days until I go on vacation, again! I'm so excited! I really hope I can stay focused while I am there as it took me like 1 1/2 months to lose the damn 5 pounds I gained in May while on vacation!!!!
Well, I hope everyone is doing awesome! I read your blogs as often as I can, which isn't saying much, but I do try! Keep up the GREAT work! Toodles!

Monday, August 6, 2007

I guess so . . . .

Well, I'm going to change my weigh-in day to Wednesday to match the true WW peeps! I got on the scale this morning and I lost, a little bit. The weekends are just too hard to eat right when we are always going to someone's house. I know that isn't an excuse, but it will give me more time to lose whatever I gained eating on the weekend! Or, in your expert opinions, is that just going to justify me eating whatever the heck I want as I have more time to lose it? That's what I'm thinking. Well, I lost .5 this week.
We went to some friends' house yesterday and he made pulled pork! OMG! I couldn't stop at just one, or two for that matter either! I ended up eating 3 of them!!! They were so good! I had some chips, too. But, I don't think I went overboard on those, and some fresh veggies too.
I got on my bike yesterday, for the first time in like 15 years or so. O M G!!! I barely rode it at all and I was ready to scream from the pain! And to think, I was going to sign up for some bike marathon to help a good cause!!! Not this year, no sirree! Oh well, I just have to keep doing it because I know it will get easier!!
The metal devil is still my friend, he'd be my best friend is I just QUIT CHEATING!

Monday, July 30, 2007

I was wrong! :(

Well, I remembered after I posted the last one, that it was .4 lost. But yes, you are both right. It's still a loss! I got on the scale a few days ago and was so sure I had lost weight, hence the reason I got on the darn thing early, and when it said I had actually gained weight, I got depressed. I figured, what the heck, I already gained weight so I'm going to eat whatever the heck I want! I sort of did. I was so disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning, I almost cried. But, I can't expect it to be less of a number when I ate too much of the bad.
Michael got my bike out today when he got home from work! I am so excited! I think as long as it is still working properly, that I will go for a small bike ride after work! Well, trying to keep track of everything! Even when I eat/drink something that is zero points, I'm writing it down! OH! If you like English Muffins (love 'em), Thomas has new 'Light Whole Wheat' and they are ONE point a piece! I also use Promise Light for my spread and that is only one point for a Tablespoon, as well. Which leads me to a question I've asked myself alot of late. . What man developed what a serving size is, anyway? I mean come on, I LOVE Peanut Butter and a serving is like one tablespoon!! HELLO!!!! And don't get me started on servings of chips and cookies, either! LOL! Ok, well I've neglected some of my work so I better get to it!
Thanks for the encouragement!

Man, this sucks!

Well, I haven't updated my ticker yet, will do that at work. But, it will show just how much I cheated this week! Well, maybe it will tell you how depressed I was because I stepped on the scale too early and was disappointed with the numbers! I only lost .6 this week. I am now resolved NOT to get onto that damn scale until my weigh in day which is Mondays. UGH! I was doing so well, too! I know, a loss is a loss no matter how big or how small! Well, I'm going to go drown myself in my sorrows! J/K. Hubby STILL hasn't gotten my bike out! By the time he gets it out, it will be Christmas! I told him I would do it but he says there are snakes and other critters under there and that's enough to keep me out! Well, toodles! Hope you all had a better week than I did. Might write more later from work.

Tuesday, July 24, 2007


Ok, this is going to be a quick one as I am at work, as usual! Two and a half pounds! I'm so happy! I really didn't think I was going to do it this week. I cheated, of course. This week, I am trying not to go over my points at all. It's my own little experiment. Hubby is supposed to be getting my bike out, FINALLY, so I can do some riding and get in some much needed exercise!

Gotta go!


Friday, July 20, 2007

You guys make me cry!!

I have tears in my eyes from reading all of your encouragement! I love you all! I really appreciate and take to heart all that you say! I will TRY and work on making links to your blogs sometime in the next week. It's just been crazy for me! I work two part-time jobs to get the bills caught up so we can finish our house and I get pretty tired!
Anyways, my husband took me shopping last week to Lane Bryant. It's an outlet store and we went two months ago to get proper fitting 'undergarments' and the woman there was so kind! Anyway, I lost a band size and a pant size! I was so happy!! The problem is, I don't see any of it. I still see myself as I used to be. Someone told me that was actually a good thing because it will keep me motivated to lose the weight. I don't know. I have a tendency of giving up easily if I don't see the results that I want to. Oh well. I will press on.
I was looking in my WW food journal today to see when I started this painful journey, and I'm not sure that the weight I've lost is enough. I started in early April. I would like it to come off faster, but I know it's my own fault. I haven't been exercising and I cheat at least one day a week! UGH!
Hopefully, I will be going back to Wisconsin again in September to see my sister and her kids. I hope it works out! My hubby tries to send me at least once a year and I've already gone once. He knows how hard it is for me to be so far away from her. I have lived here in NH for almost 11 years!! The only reason we are still here is because someone needs to check in on his parents. I mean, they're not invalids, but they are getting older. He has two brothers, but one lives 2 hrs away and comes up when he can and the other lives 20 min. away and only shows up if he needs money!! It is so frustrating! OMG! Did I really just vent all of that? I'm really sorry. I just miss my sister so much, especially since our parents stopped talking to us. That's another story.
Anyway, the picnic is Sunday, and I hope I can do it. Wait, I KNOW I can! Yes, yes, I can do it!
Take care everyone and I'll try and get your pages linked to mine and hopefully start commenting on your pages as well! For some reason, we are getting a faster connection at home, which is good! Not going to complain!
LOVE YOU ALL FOR ALL OF YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT AND COMMENTS!! I KNOW you can do it too! Will post a picture, maybe tonight.

Monday, July 16, 2007

It's Still A Loss!

Well, I lost 1.2 pounds for last week. Oh well, I KNOW I could have done better, but that's just one more thing I need to remember. The reason that is all I lost is beacause when I go out to eat, I can't make myself choose the right thing! It is so hard! I did, however, manage to eat two salads from McDonald's with grilled chicken! They were the first salads I've had period since starting this journey over two months ago! They were pretty darn good, too!
I have another picnic this Sunday for work, and I am saving some points for that!
Unfortunately, I did not 'lighten' up my pasta salads for my picnic. I was going to, but wasn't sure if they would be good enough to eat since I've never done it before! I will try next time, though! Well, I've got a pile of work to do here, so I better get to it before I get busted! LOL! Good Luck Everyone! I'll try and write more later this week!

Monday, July 9, 2007

Every little bit counts!! (For some reason, it wouldn't let me put in a title, so this is mine!)
It's been such a crazy week! Working two jobs and then having a picnic can really make the time fly by! Our picnic was a success! My husband cooked hot dogs, hamburgers, marinated chicken and cheddarwurst on the grill and I put together two different pasta salads, baked beans, deviled eggs (first time making them!), and a can of chili for hot dogs! We also had some chips and tons of soda for everyone! Guess what? I hardly ate at all! I was so proud! I had about a 1/4 C. of pasta salad, one cheeseburger, piece of chicken and one cheddarwurst!!! No soda and about 10 chips! AWESOME! I think it was because I was too busy making sure everyone had what they needed and whatnot. Then, instead of keeping all of the leftovers, we sent them home with our friends! NICE! Apparently, that paid off. I was so worried I wasn't going to lose weight this week because I didn't keep track of my points, which I really need to work on, but I did anyway! Almost two pounds exactly!
I have also started 'walking' on my Gazelle. I know you are supposed to do exercise for at least 30 min, but it just wasn't happening. My doctor told me to walk at least 5 min. a day and when I first started doing that, 5 min. seemed like forever! So, I turned on the TV and watch Harry Potter and was able to stay on for 15 min.!!! WOO HOO!
How is everyone else doing? I haven't been back on Weight Watchen, I like it here too. I'm not sure I'd be able to keep up with both, but I will see what I can do. As for commenting on other people's blogs, I apologize. We have dial-up and I have a 24.0 connection here at home. I try to get on at one of my jobs, but it isn't always easy. I will try and do better, however.
Well, I know everyone was a great success last week, I'm sure ya'll went to a few picnics!

Tuesday, July 3, 2007


I can't seem to remember my log in for Weight Watchen Blog and I don't know what to do! UGH! My blog isn't there either! Should I create a new one or what? HELP PLEASE!

Monday, July 2, 2007

Woo Hoo!

Well, as you can see by my weight loss ticker, it was another successful week!

I haven't been on for a few days as I have been very sick. I think I'm getting better, but not sure. It seems to have moved to my ears and they are a might tender! My hubby wanted to stay and watch fireworks tonight, but I don't think my ears would have handled it very well!

Does anyone know how many points are in a McDonald's Grilled Chicken Ranch Snack Wrap? I had one today and I'm not sure of the point value! Please, let me know!

Well, I'm not going to write much more, need to get to bed so I can fully recover from whatever it is that I have!

Ok, that was fun! My computer crashed while I was writing this last night, but now I'm back. Not really sure what else to write today, so I'll talk to you all in a few days! :)

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Hello? Is Anyone Out There?

I love saying that!!

Ok, so here is what I ended up eating for the rest of the day: Lg. Pear (2), Broccoli (0), Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich (10, I added a little extra of both to eat up some points), and an Ice Cream Bar (0)! That's right, I said Z E R O! If you have a Schwan's driver in your area, I recommend signing up if you haven't already! I eat the 'LiveSmart Rainbow Bars' for 0 points. It's a mixture of Lemon and Lime Sherbet....but in a good way! Also, you can go onto their website and look up the Nutrional Value and thus figure out the points. It's awesome! I ended the day with 2 points left to use, but couldn't eat anymore!
Today, I have already drank 4 glasses of water, but then I didn't eat breakfast until about 11 a.m. and I ate 2 eggs (4), 2 pieces of toast (4 with Smart Balance), a glass of milk (2) and 2 hasbrowns (6). So, I have 15 points to use and nothing to eat here at work. I can always go raid the in-laws fridge after work....... We'll see what happens.
Well, I suppose I should get some work done.....nah!!! LOL
Have a Great Day Everyone!

Another Day . . . . .

So, yesterday wasn't too bad. I ended up finishing the day eating a pear (1), Glass of Milk (2), 1/2 of a Peanut Butter/Jelly Sandwich (4) and a ham and cheese sandwich (6). Of course, this left me with a surplus of 7 points, but God's honest truth, I couldn't eat anymore!!!! Is it a bad thing if I really don't eat all of my points?
OH, I wanted to share some shortcuts that I've found, you probably already know them, but let me have my 2 seconds of glory, please?! LOL Molly McButter has become my BEST friend! I have always been an extreme butter lover, (I ate a WHOLE stick when I was about 4), and so I tried Butter Buds first, they are cheaper, and GROSS! I now use Molly McButter on pretty much everything, except toast! Also, my husband had stopped at the grocery store to buy me some WW bread, but found something else instead! It's called Pepperidge Farm Light Style 7 grain bread! Three pieces of this bread only equals 2 WW pts!!!!! When I eat 2 pieces though, I count it as 2 pts, is that ok?
Well, the temp is in the 90's and we don't have A/C here at FedEx and I am dying! It's hard to concentrate on my work! I just want to go home! Oh well, soon enough!
So far today I've had a glass of milk (3), some pasta w/Sauce (5) and a Roast Beef Sandwich (9)! Still have 14 pts for the day, but I don't know if I will eat them as it is so hot! Maybe I'll drink them, instead! ;)

My Weight Loss Ticker!!


First of all, thank you to each of you for commenting on my blog! I really appreciate the support!

Second, I WAS doing good yesterday! I am allowed 31 pts for the day and by the time I got home from work, I had 18 pts. to use! So, I made a small steak, some veggies and I won't tell you what else, but I went OVER by 3 pts!!! I was so MAD! But, we all learn from our mistakes, I hope! :)

Well, so far today, I have had two cups of coffee w/ 1/2 & 1/2 and artificial sweetener (4pts. 'cuz of the 1/2 & 1/2) and a WW SmartOnes Salisbury Steak and Mac n' Cheese for 5 pts. Total point use=9.
I will try and write down every day what I eat on here to make myself more accountable for what I am doing. I stopped putting salt on everything to make me drink my water intake! At the moment, I don't have high blood pressure, so let's keep it that way! I try to drink my water, daily, but it doesn't always happen!

Anyone have any idea's for a picnic? Am I going to be able to eat anything? We're having hot dogs, cheeseburgers, marinated chicken, vegetable kabobs, macaroni and potato salad, watermelon, corn on the cob, baked beans. I think that's it. HELP ME PLEASE! Otherwise, when I get there, I'll eat more than I should!

My Official Starting Over Weight

I guess, in all fairness to myself, I need to write down what my new starting weight is. It's a whopping 252.7 lbs.!!!

I have been asked to be a bridesmad in September and my goal weight for that is 230 lbs.!

Can I do it, I know I can!

Ok, I have to get back to work before I get busted! LOL

Starting Over, Again!

Well, once again, I have started over doing my Weight Watchers! I am so disappointed in myself! I need to stop telling myself it's ok to cheat, because it isn't! I have to be conscience of everything I eat and take my food journal with me every where I go!
I only lost 1/10 of a pound last week! :(
Oh well, as Anne Shirley of Anne of Green Gables said, "Every day is a new day without any mistakes!"
I hope the other site gets up and running soon! I liked it much better!

I also hope this damn site will let me back into it! UGH! Sometimes technology sucks!
