WW again?

I'm 90% leaning towards joing WW again. They have a great deal going on right now, that with the price of the meetings the web site tools are included.

When I lost weight in 2002, I did it by following WW to the T, the program works - I just have to work it. Obviously doing it on my own has not worked. It's been about 3 weeks since my last weigh in, and I don't want to face the scale. I didn't over eat during the holidays, I actually ate very little. My problem is that I am lazy in cooking healthy food, and rather eat out than cook at home.

I'll make my decision by next Tuesday.

Sick or Lazy

My fat ass didn't go to the gym once again. Ugh!
AND I'm a bottomless pitt. I eat basically no stop when I get home, I had chips, baked potatoes with dressing, 6 tacos, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some things.

I was really tired last night or I'm getting sick. Hubby even wanted to converse with me in bed (something I tell him he never wants to do) and what do I do, fall asleep. I just couldn't stay awake. Ever had that heavy sleep feeling, where you are trying to fight it to stay away but it just wins in the end - well that's how I felt.

The plan for today is to go straight to the gym after work. On a good note I have been walking for both breaks and lunch in the cold. I think that walking in the cold burns more calories, yeah I'm going with that.

What happened to I R-E-F-U-S-E

My fat ass didn't go to the gym last night.

I let myself be suckered by the hubby, and taking an hour nap didn't help either. I got guilted by the fact that my son is sick, and the hubby is in a lot of ankle pain.

Did I stay and do anything productive to help either one of them? NO!

Tonight is a different story, I have to get my butt moving again.
I need the money and I need my health.

I gained 2 pounds. T-W-O pounds.

I just can't bare it; my fat ass is going back to the gym tonight. I'm 11 pounds away from were I started, I just can't go back. I just can't and I wont. I refuse. R-E-F-U-S-E. refuse.

I did some pretty bad food choices for lunch but no more allowing Anna to persuade me from my lunch plans. I let her twist my arm too easily.

I wasn't going to walk every lunch hour, but fuck it now. I have to, not a choice. I'll be walking every lunch house and 15 minute breaks. That's 1 1/2 hours of walking a day and then heading to the gym every day until the kids start another sport. I have no excuse not to go on the weekend now too.

My niece put me to shame this holiday weekend. We were in Vegas for thanksgiving; she found a gym and went 2 out of the 3 1/2 days she was there. Shame on me.

I gained 6.1 pounds in one month.
Can't cry over it, just have to loose them again.

That increases the amount of weight is Have to loose by 5.7 pounds but it's doable.
I've also changed my weigh-in days to Tuesdays due to the Holidays. I would have had 3 Mondays with no weigh-in, not a good thing. I'm really going to be accountable for this, so it's best that I weigh in every week.


When my last living grandmother passed away in 2004 I was given a proposition; loose 50 pounds and I would get $1,000. Money has never been a driven force for me, so the deadline for that proposition came and went. It was later told to me that even though the deadline had passed the offer would be ongoing.

I need the money now. I needed the money back then but now I really need the money. I have 30 pounds to go, and I am going to use the original deadline date, but obviously a different year - Valentines day. 10 pounds a month, a bit of a challenge but it is doable but I have faith that my goal will be accomplished.

Football season ends this coming Saturday. I'll be heading back to the gym, need to tone up everything that has gone flabby again. Thankfully, I've only gone flabby and not gained the weight back. I'll take flabby with a smile.

I've changed my weigh-in days for Mondays, just for the fact that today is Monday. I'll be skipping weigh next week because I will be off work. Skipping next week might be a good thing since it will be right after Thanksgiving dinner and Vegas.

The dress

Okay, so I look nothing like the model in the picture but I felt extremely beautiful when I wore it.


I've felt like a garbage disposal. I ate practically non stop all weekend, and I don't recall having a meal. I ate about a box of ice cream sandwiches, nachos, icing out of the tub (u-hu, out of the tub). Most of the time I was eating out of boredome, just because - no really reason. I wanted to stop, well maybe not really wanted to but I thought it. Then the thoguth of the frosting being in the fridge took over. Next the thought of vanilla ice-cream sandwiches in the freezer filled my brain.

I'm so tempted in weighing myself today, but I purposely wore jeans to keep that temptation at bay. People have been telling me what a difference they can see in my body and face. The picture on the left was taken in January, the one on the right was taken today.

I don't know if I see a difference, but hey a long as the scale keeps showing a loss.

On the WW boards there was a topic of rewards, that got me thinking of what rewards I want. the weigh-loss and the compliments are great but I want something that everytime I see it, it reminds me of where I used to be so I don't go back. I was thinking jewelry. Now I'm not a big fan of jewelry but for the weigh-loss I think I will wear it, and all with diamonds. Granted they don't have to be teh best cut diamonds but diamonds all the same. I want to loose 78 pounds so I can break this down into 3 big reward.

26 pounds = necklace
52 pounds = bracelet
78 pounds = ring, and a really expensive diamond

I was also thinking of little rewards, pedicures - boy do I love them, but since I've been counting my pennies I haven't had one in a while. Ithink I will reward myself with one tomorrow for the 10 pounds and get one every ten pounds. That sounds like a plan.

FYI, I stopped going to WW meeting - saving the money. I wasn't really following the plan to the T, so it was not worth the $10 a week (plus about $15 for the snacks) to use their scale. I weigh myself on Friday's at the GNC scale for $0.50.

Weapon of mass seduction

That's what I'm going to become - a weapon of mass seduction.Took my first yoga class last night. Not exactly what I had expected but my body enjoyed it. I learned about 8 out of the 1,000 yoga positions. It's a start. Going to try to go 3 x a week (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday) If there only was a yoga studio around my house, I'd love to sign up to at my schedule not when the gym offers it. I don't like the hours they have. Monday 7:45 - 8:45, Wed 7:00 - 8:15 and Saturda 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm.

Also did 15 minutes on the stationary bike and 28 minutes on the eliptical machine.Tempted to take a cardio kickboxing class tonight at 5:30 which means I wont get home till 7:00 pm. I feel that's late for me to get home. I'll let you in on Monday if I went. (I can't update the blog on the weekend, currently don't have internet at home.)

I'll be transfering some weight loss entries I entered in my other blog.
