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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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! :)
