Picture Time

Here is the most recent picture taken of me at my friend Nina's birthday party here at my house. They had me put her crown on for the picture. Our friend Alisa handmade the crown.

Darn Mother Nature

I was down -1.5 this week, but according to my scale I had been down more then that until Mother Nature came to visit! It's a loss and where Weight Watchers wants me to be. I am still loving the program and enjoying the results. I'm working harder on this then I have on almost anything in my life. It's gotten a lot easier these past couple weeks. It's become my new lifestyle. That's what it's going to have to be to continue the weight loss for life.

I want to thank ALL of you for your support and encouragement. It truly helps hearing your comments and having all of you in my cheering section!

I found an excellent recipe I want to share. It's a veggie salad and it 0 points!! I'm not a huge tomato fan, but this is sooo yummy!!

1 1/2 C Cucumber diced or cubed
1 1/2 C Tomato diced or cubed
1/2 C onion diced or cubed
6 t Splenda (which is almost 12 packets)
1/2 C Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 C Water
1 t dried dill weed
Mix it all together and refrigerate for an hour before serving.

See you all next week!

Holy Guacamole......hummmmm that sounds good!

I was down -4.4 pounds!! I weighed in at 224. Down a total of -21.4 on WW and almost -25 all together. I honestly can't tell you how I lost this past week. We went on vacation to South Padre Island and although I was within my points I used my flex I ate more and lost more! Go Figure!! It's gotta be the working out. Kim is kicking my booty and it's wonderful!!
I can't say enough good things about Weight Watchers. It's the only "plan" that lets me be normal. I can go out or eat in. Tommy is even eating better since he eats what we eat. This is a good lifestyle change for all of us.
I am in such a great Weight Watchers group. There are a few of us that have really clicked. I'm going to start a small email group with some of them to help us keep on track.
We'll see what next week holds! :-)

I was sooooo scared to weigh in...

...but it wasn't so bad! I was only down a half of a pound, but that's OK! I thought for sure I'd be up! I went on our Women's Retreat with church and ate what they served. It was kind of hard to make great food choices when even the salad dressing on the salad bar had more calories then my entire (usual) dinner. I did splurge and have dessert one night and even a smore at the campfire. Now come can I pass up a smore?? Those are my absolute favorite!! If it wern't for my wroking out so hard I think I would have been up.
I tried on some old jeans this past Friday and they FIT! They are a size 18. I'd gotten up to a size 20/22, so even if the scale doesn't always show it, my clothes are fitting again! :)
I worked out today with my trainer/friend Kim and she kicked my can! It's all'll be good for me.
Time to get back on track and drop some more pounds!

Ughhh......only a pound down

I know it's still a loss, but it's got me bummed! I haven't changed a thing and I'm only down a pound!?! Yes a pound is a pound, but come on!! I've been at the gym everyday except Sunday. I get on the treadmill and don't get off till I've burned 500 calories. I just need a minute to have my lil' pity party then I'll be fine!........
OK done with the pity party. On a good note I'm finally back into the 220's! I'm at 229. The WW leader says the first few weeks you'll lose more, but then WW really only wants you loosing between 1 to 2 pounds a week.
Sooooo I'm just doing what WW says!
Let's see what happens next week.
