Day 2 of counting points

I lost 3 pounds yesterday. So per my scale (in the morning and naked) I am 213! Yea! I was 216 yesterday morning. WW scale is at night and fully clothed so I figure it is always going to be a few pounds more than my morning weight. So, I lost and feel like I wasn't really even dieting! Awesome!

Week 1-Owned!

I completely owned week 1 with 7 lbs. down! I'm still much to fat to report my actual weight so you can kiss it! Or eat it...; )

The meeting was good last night (WW) and it is nice to get to see Emily, Carly and Kyla ( (when Kyla attends) for something other than babysitting or dinner. It's one big happy freakin family...And I do mean big. : )

Here it goes

I officially started weight watchers. I am an ugly, nasty 219. Ready to get rid of some of it. again. I am excited but scared that I will fail...again. But I am going to continue going to the meetings and just trying to get through one day at a time. That's my plan...

Day 6

Day 6 started out wonderful. I have lost exactly 7 lbs according to morning, naked weighing with my scale. I went to Weight Watchers early this morning to weigh in so I could enjoy biscuits and gravy with my friend Scott. According to fully clothes, post-coffee, Weight Watchers scale I have lost 5.2 lbs in 6 days. I was still super stoked. I enjoyed "bad" food most of the day and am ready to eat clean tomorrow. It was a nice break from counting points but I feel kind of full and gross so I'm really looking forward to cleansing the water weight tomorrow. I'll keep you updated on my progress. : )

Just a quick update for today. I am down a total of 6.6 in 5 days! I am super stoked and not deprived at all. Thank God! All is well...

Good Place

After my fantastic meal last night, and it was fantastic, I went up 1.5 lbs. It was completely worth it! That was the first time I have weighed this morning so after I drink enough lemon water this morning it may go back down. My fingers look like sausages this morning. Gross!

Anyway, I'm not stressed because I'm finally back in my good place. I had a productive weekend, went on a date with Aiden, enjoyed talking with friends at William's party and got to see all of my nephews and niece this weekend. It was a great weekend and I didn't starve or deprive myself in anyway, shape or form. I even ended the night with a small piece of ice cream cake. I'm completely content again. Thank God.

I haven't had much to say because I have been in limbo. Not eating too bad, but not on a diet either. Tues. I go to my first weight watchers meeting and I am excited to get it all figured out and know what my plan is going to be. I know the weight will come off much slower and I am trying to brace myself for that, but today I picked out my lunches (all weight watcher boxed lunches) for the week and I am so excited. Not only about the food ( I get to eat pizza and not feel awful about it), but also, here it is, Sunday...Normally I would cook ALL DAY for the week of lunches ahead on Brenda's diet. Instead, today, I get to kick back and actually read a book. Nice, very nice. Def. need some kind of meeting, so Elle, give me the info and I'll see what I can do to go to fat therapy with you!


By the way, I am down 0.2 lbs from yesterday. I'm not stressed though because I know it's water weight; I can tell by my swollen fingers. I feel really good and healthy overall so I'm not going to stress. Plus in 4 days I am down a total of 5.8 lbs. I can live with that.

Steak and Crabby

I am holding off eating anything that will rack up my points because tonight I'm going all out and eating fillet mignon, king crab legs soaked in butter, with homemade garlic cheddar biscuits and Greek salad washing it down with a stellar glass of wine. I can't wait! We don't even have to pay for any of it because my mother in law is making everything (except the biscuits, which I'm making) for the Jan. birthdays in the family. We eat over with Aiden's family almost every Sunday but I only truly look forward to the food part a hand full of times a year; Jan. birthdays, Christmas and my birthday when she makes Chicken Modiga, my favorite. So I'm sitting here eating a plate of grapes (which Brenda can still suck) and low fat cheeses so that I don't use too many points. I'm not too crabby over this lunch but I'm really hungry and want something filling so I'm a little bitchy right now. I'm going to finish my grapes and cheese and focus on organizing Frederick's toys and cleaning out closets (all part of my goals for the New Year. reference instead of how hungry I am. It's only a few short hours until the pay off other people's birthdays!

Water Wait

I have an obsessive habit of weighing myself several times throughout the morning to see if anything has changed on the scale. I only do this after I have used the restroom (I'll spare you details) several times trying to get rid of excess water weight and other...stuff. Waiting to record my "final" results usually does pay off, but I hate that I do this. I have tried to not obsess, but I have serious food issues. I know this! I have never denied least, on this blog. I don't think anyone around me (other than Emily, who has some of the same issues) realizes just how screwed up my way of thinking about food, body image and the like, really are. I am seriously trying to work through them. I have signed up for a session on body image and compulsive eaters to hopefully give me some insight. I think it is next month. I'll let you know how that goes. Emily, would you care to join me? Call me. : )
