I am shocked and appalled!!! I’ve been creating a list of foods for a quick reference, calculating the new weight watchers points plus values on my favorite foods at all the restaurants we go to, and am just speechless (verbally, not in my mind, which is why I can still think). At most of the restaurants, the values were bearable, as in they’d fit in my day if I was careful, and planned ahead a little bit. But at Shari’s, no can do! Even every single one of their salads are over 1,000 calories. The only healthy items on their menu is the “soup and salad” (a special, I’m sure, small salad). The ONLY! I even checked out their kids menu and all of the kids items are atrocious! I couldn’t believe it! So, I can definitely say it’s a good thing we go to Shari’s only a couple of times a year. And I’m definitely going to have to plan ahead so that I have the points.

On to less shocking (maybe) items, I have done strength training exercises on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and to my utter disbelief, my abs are actually sore today. The only reason I really noticed is that every single time I cough, I’m majorly straining those already sore muscles and I kind of curl up a little bit. I’m thinking I might have to lay off the ab exercises until I’m not sick anymore. LOL. I have also been in my points for Wednesday and Thursday, and I’m doing well today so far.

Last night, I weighed myself just for kicks, and my scale said I was back in the 270’s, for the first time in a couple of months. I know that my scale is a little bit lower than the weight watchers one, but I also know that it does fluctuate like I do, so I actually have a loss this week! YAY!

That is all. Have a great weekend!


  1. Stop fluctuating and start losing! Consistently! Plan everything and drink tons of water!

    So good that you checked their menu, horrible how some restaurants can be.

  2. I to got a rude awakening on the new point program. Several of the things that I like have gone up in points so I am having to re-thing my menu. You are doing great on your exercise. Keep it up..

  3. Way to be prepared. Merry Christmas. smile
