I can stop at any time

In Stupidity run amuck, wailing and moaning, WeightWatchers® Weigh-In on March 29, 2009 at 7:37 pm

celebrity-pictures-cookie-monster-stop-anytime1You believe that, don’t you? You believe me that I can eat just ONE of those 100 calorie Hostess thingies. You believe that I can only eat the one serving of Doritos®. That I can stick to my points and actually know what those points are? Yeah…sure…right.

Last week, I went by the rules and stayed within my 28 points. I lost a piddly .4. I have a bad day this week and decide, “Screw it, I’m going to eat!” And eat I did. It started off an okay day, nothing unusual, and then hammered into a day when hades broke loose. I ate at least three helpings of that dang Kashi Go Lean® cereal, 4 Hostess 100 calorie snacks®, 1/2 bag of Doritos®, 1/4 bag of Cheetos®, “And a partridge in a pear tree…..”.

I expected the worst on the scale Saturday. If I lost my 5%, I felt I truly deserved to after that day. As I stepped on the scale, I thought “around and around she goes, where she stops, nobody knows..” like the wheel for the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right©. It did finally stop. On 234.2! I had lost 1.2 lbs after all! So, what was the lesson learned? Always face the music on the scale, no matter how bad you think you screwed up.

The Winning Streak is Over It Seems

In Day What?, wailing and moaning, WeightWatchers® Weigh-In on March 23, 2009 at 12:30 am

I couldn’t possibly expect to continue losing with the numbers I’ve had. Last week,  it was 2.8.  Two weeks before that, it was 3.8.  I’ve lost 16.4 lbs in 6 weeks. That’s an average of 2.73 lbs. I just hope that I don’t have this dry spell of not losing. Finally, I feel like I might know what I’m doing with WeightWatchers®. I’m not inclined to screw it up now.

Sorry I’m late…..

dial-close

but I don’t have a great excuse. Seems like if anybody else had lost 2.8 lbs, they’d be shouting it from the rooftops.  I guess the truth is I wonder how long before my time runs out on weight loss. Lately, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. But to be honest, I’ve not started walking yet. I think I’m leery because the last time I tried walking at this weight, (235.8), I injured myself…my knee, actually. And gained 16 pounds. Which I’ve lost now, but still kind of skiddish where exercise is concerned.

Anyway, hurray for me! Only 85.8 more to go….

Day 63

498e29797b6be_61193n1Sorry, I don’t have anything witty to put in the title today. It’s been 9 weeks ago today that I started WeightWatchers®, and I hit my 5% today!  I weighed in at 238.6, making my total to date: 13.2. Now I have to get to steppin’… see, I kind of made this bargain with myself that I’d start walking AFTER I hit my 5%.  Unfortunately, they gave us a sample of these Mint Cookie Crisp Mini Bars and let’s just say, I shouldn’t have ever bought a box. While they taste just like Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints, they also are addictive. I must confess that I’ve eaten 8 of them.  That leaves me with 7 points left for the day. What an idiotic thing to do!
