Weight Watchers Wednesday!


Well, I am very surprised at this week's results. I am down 2.4 pounds. Even with my "aunt" in town visiting-if you get my drift. After my debacle with the Chili's sandwich, I have been extra good. But I did indulge in homemade low fat salsa verde sour cream enchiladas on Saturday night and burgers/fries on Sunday night. (Extra lean ground beef and baked fries-but still)

I have lost 30.4 pounds. Only 7.6 pounds until I reach my goal of 145. I think I can do it by June!! I have been losing weight pretty quickly lately, and I'm not sure why, but I am sure it is probably about to stall/slow down soon.

I have been tracking for two weeks now, and I have to say, it does work! Much as I hate to admit it! But really, I think I'm just projecting-I mean, nothing against tracking, but I am not gonna be tracking for like 2 years. (Hopefully we will have this journey completed by this summer and I can just maintain!) I do need to remember something a fellow WW member said last week. Something along the lines of, "Don't think about just getting to your goal. Because once you reach it you cannot go back to what you were doing before." And I have to say, I have been telling myself, "Self you can get to 145 and then it will all be cool." No. I can't start pounding Mexican and Reese's cups again-(dangit!)

I do notice that now, being so familiar with WW, I look at foods a lot and automatically figure out the points, or try to. It's like ingrained in me! Except for the debacle. Obviously. :D
How did you all do this week? I see b.e.g. lost some! Way to go girlfriend! Not too many of us are still posting WWW. But I like it-it is fun to share successes and failures with you all. Tonight we talked about how important it is to have a buddy in weight loss. I explained my blogging buddies and how we do WWW and get encouragement. This was to a meeting of 40+ year old women. They were like, "What is a blog???" Ha! Mom, want to tackle that one???

Anyways, I have to remember to remain strong this Easter weekend. We are having the in laws in town. My rentals can't come cause my sissy is too preg to travel-so they are having Easter together in Bham. Wahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! I do not like being away from my family. Sidenote: it is soooo hard getting married and changing up holidays and making your own traditions. I think we all like our old traditions and want to carry those on, but I guess we all have to make up our own traditions, just like our parents did.

On our menu for Easter dinner (we are doing it on Saturday this weekend) is a brisket, Weight Watchers mac-n-cheese, grilled asparagus, and MIL deviled eggs. And I'm sure carrot cake. Oh Lord, be with me now and do not let me overindulge. Especially since I am gonna weigh in next Wednesday morning before heading out of town. Amen.

Anyway, let me know how you all are doing on your journeys. And if you are not on a weight loss journey, leave me a note telling me what your plans for Easter are!
Hugs to all!

  9. Girlfriend, I need you to start texting me with random messages "Put down the freakin' snack, go put the points in and then you won't eat it!" How do you do it? My loss is slowing down sooo much but I wonder if it's because we're so close to goal? What would Bob and Jillian say?

    Congrats on the loss - you can TOTES do it by June!!!

    Love & miss! XOXOX
