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!

Sounds like you had a great BBQ - did you lighten up your pasta salad? Maybe you could post the recipe? I'm looking for a good one!! I have decided to stay on Blogger, too, although I will import my posts over to the Weightwatchen site, too. Keep us posted on how you're doing!

I'm having troubles with the title, too! I guess maybe it's blogspot and not us, huh? :)

Sounds like you handled the bbq the best you could... and CONGRATS on the loss WooHoo :) I also find that distracting yourself while working out really works... I cover the time, miles, calories screen on my treamill with a "before" pic of myself and then just listen to the music...I seem to work out longer than if I am always watching the time! Keep up the good work!
