Watch Me Loose It

Monday, August 31, 2009

Well Good Golly it's Been awhile!

I bet you thought I jumped ship didn't yah? Naaaa....Last week was close out week, need I say more! I love my paycheck the first week of the month but this week nearly kills me!

I do have to say I am EXTREMELY proud of myself. Let me tell you why. I clocked 79 hours this week (Oh Me Gee). And I had some crazy obstacles that I had to cross. Not only the crazy hours. But eating out every night (yeah I'm NOT kidding). Not only did I manage to say on plan, counted and planed every bite (thank you very much), but I also went to Curves 3 times this week too. Oh yeah baby, I did that! And fit in a WW meeting too.

That's where my really good news comes in, I am down 3.2 bringing my total to 9.8. Wooooooohooooooo Soooooo close to being another 5lb star. But no worries I will get that next week. My new buddy had an amazing weigh in too, and we are tied in total pounds. WTG K!

I have learned so much about myself this past week. I have learned that I DO have will power. All these years I said I didn't have any, I just didn't know how to connect with it. I am in the zone, I don't look too far into the future, I just tackle one day at a time. I find that I feel more in control this way. I feel more in control than ever before. I pray that I can keep this feeling and not let anyone or anything take it away from me.

I have also learned that Weight Watcher math SUCKS! Let me quickly explain why, lets say you are going to eat a 1 point Sugar Free pudding cup (they are sooooo yummy) it's one point. But lets say you are really craving it and want to eat 2. Well if you eat both of them you are now up to 2.5 points. I know right! What the heck? I was always taught that 1 + 1=2, but not in WW world. I learned this the hard way, by just tracking in a note book, and not online with E-tools. I had been eating at least 5-10 points a day OVER. I know it didn't really hinder my weight loss yet, but I want to do this correctly so that I am in control of how things go.

Oh and I also learned that you actually have mussels in your stomach. Yeah! I know...I can't imagine what they look like under all this wiggle, but I know when I push extra hard at Curves like I did last week I can feel them in there. I can't wait to see what they really look like. So exciting for me. I also noticed Friday that a couple of the machines weren't so hard to get out of as they were before. I didn't totally feel like a bug on my back trying to get out of them! You know that feeling, where you can't move you are just flapping around like a fish outta water. Yeah that's normally me. That made me feel really good.

I am hoping to add my Walk Away the pounds DVD this week, on the days that I don't go to Curves. I freaking HATE walking but at least this is inside and I can blow the fan on me.

I think that pretty much catches me up till now. I will not be posting what I ate every day from now on. I am keeping track online and it seems to be working better for me. I will be posting if I try something new or eat something extra yummy.

Quote for the day: If nothing changes, Nothing changes.
