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!!

Congrats on the loss, that is great! I think the negative view is different for everyone. If ou read my most recent post (about teh no stretch jeans) you will see that I got over it, then it came back but now I'm getting over it. Sometimes you need to see a picture of yourself to see the difference and see what others see. Good luck and keep up the positive attitude!

Find a store that sells The Alternative Bagel. They are made by the Western Bagel Company from CA and they can be ordered online too but if you go to their site it has a list of groceries that sell them and they are 1 point each and they taste awesome!!
Congrats on the loss, but maybe I'm reading this wrong but you said you had a gain of 4 pounds, but then your down on the low end?
I guess I am confused.
I was the same way when I lost and I didn't see it. Take some pictures of yourself and take your measurements too. Then you will be able to see " proof" you are losing weight and inches!!

Thank you everyone! I will take some pictures! Hopefully I will have the time this weekend to work on my blog page and you can see some pictures!
Colette, I will check that out! Thank you very much! I tried the WW bagels and I found them very distasteful!
