Weight :182.0

Wahoo!! I was so happy with that number. Hopefully next week I will be out of the 180's!! I am hungry today. I wasted 6 points on a freezer meal and it just didn't cut it for me!! Oh well. I am learning. This weekend is my anniversary so I am saving all of my points for Saturday when we are going out to eat for lunch AND dinner. I will still try and be good.

Starting to get easier

Weight: Don't know

Things are starting to get a little easier. I am starting to get more full after meals. I was starving for a couple of days. I told my DH that I had to go to bed NOW or I was going to eat. I meant it too. I just needed to go to sleep. I woke up in the middle in the night and my stomach was aching it was so hungry. That was the worst of it.

Yesterday for lunch we went to Applebees. I looked up the nutritional information on everything so I would know exactly I could eat. I think they gave me way more potatoes than 1 cup though. Here is the good part. I calculated the points for the triple chocolate cake. It is 20. There were 4 of us there so I just cut the cake in 4's and I was able to eat it. Now normally I would have eaten the whole cake. I can still enjoy what I LOVE but just a smaller portion. One thing I did find interesting though is their salads are so high in points. Usually I order a salad thinking that I am behaving myself. Steak and vegi's were way lower in points. Go figure!!

I can't wait until I go and weigh myself. I can tell a difference. Not in my clothes or anything...I may not have even lost more than a pound...but I am way more aware of what I eat. It has only been a week. I think I did good at all my point counting. I haven't cheated at all. Last night we watched a movie and popcorn was involved. I air popped the popcorn and sprayed it with butter spray. It was yummy!

Tuesday 11-30

Weight: Don't know...I am going to try and wait until meetings to weigh myself.

It is the afternoon and I know I won't get another chance to post so I will write what I think I am going to have for dinner. Hopefully it all works out this way.

B: English Muffin 3
Egg: 2
FF Cheese: 1

L: Sara Lee Delightful Bread : 1 pt for 2 slices :)
Turkey: 1
Light Mayo: 1
FF Cheese: 1
Tomato and Lettuce: 0
10 kettle chips BBQ YUMMY!! 2

S: Yoplait Light Peach yogurt: 3

D: Light Tortilla: 3
Steak: 3
FF Sour Cream: 1
Mushrooms, peppers, onions...0

That works out to 22 points. I will have to figure out how to get those 7 extra points. I am sure I will find a way to get them in :)

Weight: 185.8
Today I went to my first Weight Watchers Meeting. I couldn't do it myself online. I talked my sister into signing up too. I am going to put a big picture of myself now in front of my treadmill. I am also putting a picture of a warm beach somewhere. Jason said if I reach my goal by January of 2012 I can choose any vacation I want. Also I did something else new today. I walked on the treadmill for 1 mile...but I RAN 4 minutes of it. It was in 2 minute sessions but I still did it. I made myself do it and now I feel so GREAT!! I needed my inhaler after! lol Here is my menu for the day. All points will be to the new Weight Watchers Points Plus.

Breakfast: 1 English Muffin with Jam on it. I didn't know jam was so many points. 8 points
Lunch: 6 " Turkey on wheat with 1 tsp light mayo. (Subway) 7 points
Snack: Grapes...They are FREEEEE... 0
Dinner: 3/4 c Pasta, 2T a couple extra bites of Pasta: 11
Snack: Blueberry Cake: Mix a can of blueberry filling with a box of Angel Food Cake..,.Nothing else. Mix and cook at 350 for 30 minutes. Yummy and only 2 points!!

So that leaves my day at 28...I am supposed to have 29 but I am leaving a point because it seems like the girl at Subway put a little extra mayo on. I also earned 3 activity points but chose not to use them. I am going to try and not use any activity points so I can just have the activity worth it but it is nice if I need them.

WW day 2

So the gain has begun! It was nice though to eat what I want just in smaller portions.

B: Hot chocolate
L: Left over Chinese food (just a little)
D: Mcdonalds Happy Meal

Total Points used: 26

Who knew that one of the lowest points at Mcdonalds is the happy meal. It filled me up too. So great I can even have a cheeseburger on Weight Watchers!!

Weight Watchers Day1

Weight: 184.4

Well you read it right. I cheated! I had a big ol helping of Chinese food!! This morning I weighed myself thinking I would have gained a bunch...I lost .2!! lol I gave it my all but 500 calories is just too little. I had a 3 day headache...I was starving...and just not happy. I am a normally cheerful person but I felt like I didn't even have the energy to smile. It is one of the hardest things ever. I don't know if my drops were too diluted or if I just can't do it. I might try to do the shots after the it the right way...we will see.

So weight watchers...I did it a couple of years ago and lost about 10 lbs...I know it works...I just got lazy. I am very determined to lose the weight so I am going to do this method instead. With weight watchers I never felt deprived of anything. If my hubbs and I were going to go on a date then I would just save my extra 35 points for that day. Here is my menu for today. I have 26 daily points and 35 extra points per week.

B: 1 1/2 cup honey bunches of oats....5 pts
1 cup milk...2 pts

D: 1 cup mashed potatoes...4.5 pts
1/3 c gravy...1 pt
1/2 c corn...1 pt
1 roll...3 pts
2 oz roast...3.5 pts

Grandmas: 1 cookie...4 pts

Total points: 24...(Maybe another 1/2 cookie at Grandmas)...:)

On Sundays we go to my moms for a big Sunday dinner so we don't have lunch. We have church during that time. The thing that worked for me last time was planning my dinner...putting in those points and then planning the rest of my day. That way I didn't have to change my dinner menu so much.

R1 P2 VLCD 3

Weight:184.6 Holy Moly

I was so excited with the scale today!! I couldn't believe it. It made suffering yesterday worth it. It was so dang hard. That 3.4 pound loss though was so awesome. I am down over 5 pounds now!! In 2 days!! I know that the weight will start to stabalize sometime. I sure like these big numbers...maybe one more tomorrow??? Please???

B: water
S: apple
L:Chicken, Lettuce
S: Strawberry
D: Roast, onion


Weight: 188.0...Wahoo...down some!!

B: water
L: Chicken, Tomato
S: Orange
D: Roast, Onion
S: Strawberry Smoothie...YUMMY

So tonight was my girls night out...It was so hard...I would have rather given birth again than sit there with all that food. I had to leave early because I wanted to cheat so bad. I got away with not disposing my diet too. There was chicken salad sandwiches...dips...dr pepper...cake...m&m's...dr pepper...chips...chocolate bars...dr pepper...I DIDN"T CHEAT!!!!!!

I was really proud of myself. It was so hard though. I had a little melt down. I just wanted to throw in the towel. I get bad headaches. I don't know if Ibprofen is allowed or not but I took some. Night is the worst for me. It is when I am most hungry. I did drink a ton of water today. I think for one hour I was in the bathroom every 20 minutes! Hopefully tomorrow will be a good loss and remotivate me :)

Weight: 189.8
It looks like I gained 1 pound yesterday. Wow...that is where it all comes eat crappy one day, and then another, and know where it goes from there.

Today is stinkin hard. I am looking on all the forums. They are all saying about day 4 or 5 things will feel like normal. I hope I can make it that long. When it was my load day I didn't really even crave anything and today I want everything. I went to see my Grandpa today and there on the counter were Muddy Buddys....oh the sanity. I love those things. Why didn't I think of making them last night?? I just got done with dinner and I need like 4 more servings to fill this empty belly!

B: I tried tea...didn't like it so much...I am going tomorrow to pick up some stevia.
L: chicken, tomato, apple
D:Chicken with onion and garlic, apple...ya right now I really need gum!!

Tomorrow will be a hard test. I have a girls night out and of course there will be TONS of treats there. I don't really know what to do. I am thinking that I might save both of my fruits for then and just put them in baggies. Of course I will have my 10 gallons of water. That's what it feels like anyway. A whole bunch of water and a whole bunch of bathroom breaks. Please let tomorrow's scale be worth it. Mama wants a huge number :)

Day Two: Load Day

Weight: I only gained 2 ounces of weight gain from the first load day. I could have sworn it was more. Oh well. I did great at loading today!! lol Actually tonight I feel so sick and just not right. I know it was because I ate so bad. Also I am more aware of my body signals now that I am looking for them. A couple weeks ago I would have eaten like this on a regular day and not even noticed. So here is my menu...just remember I HAVE to eat like this so my next couple of days aren't miserable.

B: Took Hubbs out to Breakfast to one of our favorite places...Jeremiahs. It was yummy! I had 2 eggs, hashbrowns, hot chocolate( I will miss this...anyone know if sugar free hc is okay on phase 3?) I also had pancakes. I couldn't finish them all but ate what I could.

L: I really couldn't eat anything since I had such a big breakfast. I know I should have stuffed it in.

D: 1 fajits, 2 taquitos, chili con carne, orchata, salsa...the whole works. I stuffed myself silly. I am pretty sure I will see a good gain tomorrow :) (should not be happy about this)

So tomorrow starts my vlcd. Here we go. I bought some herb tea, lemons, and oranges today. I also picked a ton of apples and tomatoes. I am praying that this is something I can stick to and it won't be to uncomfortable. I think I can...I think I can:)

Drink some hot chocolate for me :)

Day One: Load Day

Starting weight: 188.6
So I have read that it is hard to load...oh my word...they were right. I can't even think of food and it is almost lunch time. It is such a mind trip. Here I am all ready to loose weight and stuffing my face with donuts and hamburgers. It will all be worth it right???

B: 2 donuts and one hostess apple pie
L: Wendys double cheeseburger, Large Fry, Large Sprite
D: Big Plate of Spaghetti, Garlic Bread

I am excited to get this part over with. Also the drops are kind of weird. I am doing 10 drops 2 times a day or when I get hungry. I read that you should keep them under your tongue as long as possible. It is kind of tricky! I felt like I was going to slobber everywhere! lol

Getting ready 10/18/10

So I am ready for my adventure to begin. I am weighing myself tomorrow for my starting weight. I am having my load days on Wednesday and Thursday. I am so excited to just get started!! So here goes nothing. My goal is 18 pounds for the first round. I will be thrilled if I have more but I am only doing the 23 day schedule. I had a Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich tonight for dinner. They are one of my favorite things and I know it will be a while :)
