YAY! Update!

Sorry so late, but things have been a little hectic around here. At my weigh-in on Tuesday, I was down 1.6 pounds, to 282.2, which is the lowest I’ve been since I started on weight watchers again. This week, I’ve tracked really well, every bite I’ve eaten, drank a lot more water and I’ve worked out for the last two days with Jeff. I feel kind of rejuvenated, I guess is the word, because when I not only have his support, but also his willingness to eat well and workout with me, I do amazingly well!

When I got home last night, it was to an already cooked meal, ready to be eaten. And because I wasn’t in the kitchen cooking it (all by myself) I wasn’t eating and snacking on crap before dinner because I was hungry. By doing that, he helped me to keep within my points yesterday, and after we worked out, I even got a mini bagel with some natural peanut butter and an apple as a snack. I never get snacks because I always eat too much, but they fit right within my points, and I’m really excited about that.

This weekend is going to be a bit tricky because I have a bridal shower, and then a dinner at my cousins house tomorrow, and a birthday dinner on Sunday. I’m going to work really hard on eating slowly and enjoying every bite, so that I don’t eat as much.

I just realized something really funny. I have several sisters, but one of them (and her husband) are often loud and overwhelming in a crowd (which my family is). When they’re at dinner, I eat more because I don’t talk as much, because I can’t hardly get a word in edgewise. When they’re not at dinner, I eat more slowly and space out my bites because I’m actually having a conversation. LOL, how funny! I hope she never sees my blog!

Anyways, I am hoping for snow this weekend, just for fun. It’s incredibly unlikely, so I’m crossing my fingers. I hope you have a great weekend!


  1. Great job! Great job! 1.6 lbs! AWESOME! Great work to achieve it too!

  2. Love the part about your loud sibling. I haven't shared my blog with any family members yet, but I'd like to. I often think about the stuff they'll uncover if I ever do share it with them. =)

    Sending good vibes for the weekend! You can do it!

  3. I'm glad things are headed in the right direction for you. Make a plan for those weekend challenges, you don't want to lose your momentum.

  4. It is definitely easier when the husband is doing it as well. I know that from experience. But so far this year, it is just me, so I will have to do it on my own - and maybe he'll decide to join me along the way.

    Good luck this weekend - you're doing great so far :)

  5. Way to go on tracing, hubby's support and your weight loss! smile.
