New Favorite

Easiest dinner ever:

1 cup multi-grain rice
1/2 can red kidney beans
1/3 cup weight watchers shredded mexican cheese blend
as much tabasco as you can stand

Totally filling. Unbelievably cheap. And only about 500 calories.

Pizza incident is but a distant memory now.

My weight isn't budging a whole lot this week thanks to said incident, but I'm only up about .5 and it's not Saturday yet. There's still hope.

On a side note, I'm sewing a halloween costume for my Joe tonight. Should be interesting seeing that I haven't sewn a 'garmet' since home ec class in high school. But I did remember how to fill a bobbin and thread the damn machine. It's a start!

Damnit. Out of complete starvation I agreed to have Cici's pizza for dinner tonight. I feel like a bloated cow. I must've had at least a thousand calories with what I stuffed my face with. Yuck. And it wasn't even that good. I would've much rather had a big fat double hamburger at mcdonalds for half that.
Booo me.

So I had the guilt run tonight for a mile to burn some of it off. What else can you do but jump back on the wagon as soon as possible right?

Man, sushi would've been SO much better.

week 5

Notice the lack of posts.

For me that typically means I have nothing exciting to report. It's been the same up on the weekend down during the week routine that I struggle with time and time again. Doesn't mean that I've given up though. I'm still fighting for every ounce. Although I'll admit, not as hard as I could be.

Hormonally this has been a challenging last few weeks for me. Long story short, I've been off my birth control pills for an entire month now (not voluntarily) and I'm a little bit of a mess. I'll be another mess for another month after I'm back on them, so the lesson is...never let an out of network obgyn write your prescription. Sigh. Hopefully by the holidays I'll be back to normal.

I've lost a pound this week - down to 154.4. My weigh is fluctuating between 154 and 156 consistantly, but I'm ready to see some new numbers. I'm going to set a moderate goal of another pound for next week. AND get back to the water habit.

Actually, I think I'll start it today instead of Monday.

Hope everyone is hanging in there! Just think how hot we'll all be in our holiday dresses. :)

week 2

It's start of week three already, so it's time to let you all know that for week 2 I am down 1.2 pounds.

It's a loss, but it's bittersweet. After seeing 154 on the scale this week I was certain I'd have a 2 pound loss. But then after too much beer and wine since Wednesday, I am sitting at 155.4. Hopefully that just means 154 will come easier next week.

I gotta lay off the booze!

Total loss so far is 3.4 pounds. Short term goal: I can't wait to be on the other side of 155!

I'm still struggling get back to the gym so I took my birthday gift certificates and bought a Wii Fit today. I can't wait to use it and I'm hoping it will spark some new interest.

Hope you all had a great week!

Mid-Week Report

Sorry for failing to blog this past weekend. It's just been busy busy at work and settling in from being on the road for 2 weeks.

The good news is that I did lose 2.2 pounds last week without even being at home! That's right, back down to 156.6. The weight I was before vacation, three weeks later.

And the even better news is that I peeked at the scale this morning and saw a NEW number. I've seen 155 before, although briefly. BUT This morning I saw 154.something. I was so excited I forgot what the number was after the decimal point!

I'll be weighing in on Saturday, so check back for the final official report.
