Monday and Tuesday

On Monday, I made sure to eat breakfast, which was good for me, but for some reason has always given me the most awful stomach ache for about an hour. That’s actually why I used to never eat anything when before work. My “breakfast” is actually eaten after I get to work, and am up for probably an hour. Strangely enough, even drinking cold or warm water will do that. Very strange.

My calories on Monday were good, but over the weekend Ihad made cinnamon rolls which were sitting on the counter, and gosh darnit, every time I walked by it, I took the fork sitting there and took a bite or two. Probably ended up being about 2 cinnamon rolls total. Definitely not good, but my calorie count for the day was 1897, so not horribly over my points.

Then on Tuesday, I definitely did better. Ate breakfast, lunch was from the cafeteria because I forgot my lunch, and it wasn’t too bad actually. After I got home, I ate 1 roll’s worth of fork bites (then Jeff finished it off Thank goodness!), and now it’s gone. So even with the one roll, my calories were 1,749. At the top but still in my limits!

The sad part of these last several days is that the only reason I was at the top or above my range on these days is because of the darn cinnamon rolls. Luckily, that’s over now. I should have wrapped them up and put them out of sight, but I didn’t . Lesson learned.

And despite all of this havoc I wreaked, I was down 4.4 pounds last night at weight watchers! The loss makes up for my big gain last week, and then some. I am officially down to 284.6 pounds, which is so awesome! My next goal is to be in the 270’s. I think the big loss can be attributed to my paying attention to everything I ate, and tracking everything as well over the weekend, which has always been my downfall. I also exercised 5 times in the last week. It’s so awesome to finally have the pieces of the puzzle starting to come together. I mean that it was almost instinctual to think about what I was eating, and to make it a little bit of a healthier choice. And the exercise is just something I have to do, so I do it.


  1. Yaay for your 4.4 loss! That is so awesome! Keep up the good work. You said so yourself several posts ago that you always get great results when you exercise. So...that in my opinion is you finding that "sweet spot" I am always searching for! Good for you. Good job tracking your points. And maybe you should make sure you get your exercise in 5 times this week too and see how far it gets you. Because...your next mini goal of being in the 270's is only 5 pounds away! It is so close!! And with big losses like 4.4 you will be there in no time! Push yourself and GO FOR IT! I had this realization the other day that I am just 4 lbs from my next mini goal which happens to be a weight that I cannot remember ever being at. I weigh in tomorrow. Lets keep each other motivated this week!!! I am so proud of you!


  2. Way to go! That is an awesome loss. I am glad your eating your breakfast! It is the most important meal :)

  3. Breakfast was our topic this week at WW! It's so important to eat somethign to start your day, so even if you wait an hour or so after you get up, at least you're getting some fuel in your body that will tide you over til lunch!
