So it has been one week and I am down 7 pounds. 212 this morning. Now, that was naked and in the morning, so WW would probably show only 5 pounds but still, I am happy. I have not felt like I have been dieting. AND this has been the most consistent weight loss I've had in years. On Brenda's diet I would yo yo 5 pounds daily depending if I cheated or not. I am happy with how things are going. Am I still fat? Yes. Am I doing something about it? Yes. Am I content with what I am doing? Yes.

Life is good.

My Stomach is....

Eating itself. I'm starving but am holding out for Greek and drinks with the women in my family. Don't worry, I'm eating and I just had an orange to hold me over but my stomach is making these God awful sounds in protest. I am down half a pound from yesterday. I can live with that. Like Emily said, this is going to take A LOT of patience. I'll let you know how good my night was in the morning. Happy Friday Night!!

Maybe I'm Not...

Eating enough...WTH? I'm still bouncing around this 2lbs. I went up 2 from yesterday! I swear that I am doing everything I'm supposed to be. The only thing I can figure is that I am going too long between meals and possibly not drinking enough (water, or otherwise). I don't know what to do. Honestly, if the weather wasn't so bad (and only getting worse) I would drive to Weight Watchers and demand that they "fix" me. (Oddly enough I have a post on other LYLAS that is titled: I Don't Need to be Fixed) Apparently I do. I think I'm broken. Or at least my metabolism is. HELP!! Jonesie, you can commence yelling, because apparently I need it right now!

You Never Eat...?!

Today Frederick (reference other LYLAS blog...and for the love of God please become a follower!!!) made the comment to William (again, reference) that I don't eat. They were asking for a snack so I told them I would get them all a snack, so William said, "and Elle a snack." Before I could answer Frederick said, "No, she doesn't eat."

WTF?! (which of course I didn't say to my 9 year old, but I thought it)

You don't get this fat by not eating.

So, I asked him why he thought that.

His reply...,"all you eat is string cheese, apples and stuff like that. Light snacks that are never meals and not very filling."

...ummm....I guess I can't really argue with him. I do eat this stuff a lot. I just didn't realize that he was paying attention. Sucks having an observant child.

I weighed in last night and had gone down almost 1 lb. so at least I hadn't gone up since it hadn't been a full week. There. You're updated.

I need advice so I'm seeking a freakin deserted waste land (there goes a tumble weed!) It has been 5 days since my last weigh in. Tonight I am going to the Weight Watchers meeting to actually attend the meeting but hadn't considered weighing in. I was going to make a special trip on Thurs. morning (which I know this seems ridiculous) because then it will have been a full week therefore accurately portraying my total weight loss for the week. Does it make sense to do that or do I just bite (hey, I bit everything else, why not?) the bullet and weigh in 5 days early and try to make it every Tues. from here on out? Or am I worrying about this too much?? I think I am probably stressing about this a little more than is necessary. I guess I just want that freakin 5 lb sticker and I'm afraid they are going to tell me I have gone up since 5 days ago even though according to my scale I'm down. Neurosis is never pretty. Deal! BTW you're not much help, you know that?! Yeah, I'm talking to you!


I'm a little disappointed right now. I weighed first thing this morning and had went up 1.6 lbs from yesterday. Yesterday I had went down 2.4 from the day before which was up from the day before that. Ya follow? neither. Anyway, the point is I'm yo-yo ing between this same 2 lbs since last week. I have been staying at or under my points, doing better with water and staying what gives?! Is it because I was down 7 lbs last week and my body is evening out? I dig, if that's it. If it's not then I go back to, "what gives"? I have a meeting tonight but I am not weighing in because it's either gonna be up from last week or the same. I will go and weigh in on Thurs. which is an official week since my last one. We'll see what the next 2 days hold. Of course I'll let you know, and then I'll comment to myself since no one seems to exist past the voices in my head...

We are so glad to hear from you again! Hope you are feeling ok! Dieting just isn't the same without you! Elle is even having to comment on her own posts (pathetic I know!). :)

The diet keeps marching on...

I went way over my points on Sat. But today I tried to do my best. I think this is what it is all about. The number on the scale aside, I know that today I chose a fruit cup and side salad (from McDonald's ) instead of a cheeseburger for lunch. I chose fruit two times when I got hungry. I feel like I am getting it. Slowly. My weight may not be falling off two pounds a day at a time, but perserverance will pay off. Patience will pay off.


It's been 9 days since I started Weight Watchers and already it appears I'm maintaining my weight. As of Friday I have stayed the same. Wth? I have not gone over my points or used any of the extra 49 they give you and I still haven't lost anything for 2 days. I mean nothing. Not even 0.2 lbs...which I would happily accept at this point. I'm not giving up or anything it's just a little frustrating, that's all. Hopefully when I weigh tomorrow I'll be down a pound or two and that will make up for the frustration. I'll let you know.
