Emotional Mess

Well, these past 2 weeks I have lost about 1.5 lbs altogether. Brenda and I may start going to meetings together in a few weeks. But I am pretty emotionally unstable right now. I'm sick of school already and I just want to see Danny and I still have like 2 and a half weeks to wait. I think once I get to like 1.5 to 2 weeks I may start getting better. But I just want physical contact. I want hugs and cuddles and I don;t know what else. It's killing me. It has just been too long without a lay in bed day...or anything. So I've just been trying to keep busy, but I have a test today and I don;t feel like studying for it...I don't really feel like doing anything. Sigh >.<

Well....I just weighed in. I am at 161.1. Blah :( I'm pretty disappointed at that. My net weight loss is now only at 3.7 pounds. Uph!'s a new week and it's the week I said I would super really start counting points, so we'll see how it goes! I'm trying not to be so terribly disappointed although I do feel that way...I dunno!

I know I haven't been very good about writing lately. I haven't been very good at eating though either! The last few weeks have been rather hectic. I had been packing to move to Amy's and Danny had been getting ready to go back to school. We had to travel to Virginia for a wedding reception and Danny's mom got pretty sick on the way back. It was very stressful and since I am an emotional eater...things haven't been going so well. I am afraid to step on the scale again but I know I need to. Monday I will step on the scale and weigh in honestly. School starts Tuesday and hopefully that means I will be back on track. There is also a ton of very good food in this house! Oh I love it. Fresh fruits and veggies, frozen veggies, dried fruit. I am not worried at all that I will run out of good things to eat! This gives me encouragement that I will be able to get back on track and continue losing weight. I am also now in a very safe neighborhood and won't feel unsafe running or walking around here for exercise. Hopefully this is the change I need to help me make more changes.

A week of sucess!

So it's Monday! I was a little worried about weighing in because I ate a ton of jelly beans yesterday, but I've lost 2 lbs! I'm very excited! I don't have much else to say about it. I think this is a great start to getting back on track! :)

I think the hardest part about keeping track of points is being honest...and remembering everything you've eaten. Sometimes I'm afriad to post something I've eaten because then I'll know exacty what the damage was. But I've come to realize that once I do log it in, I feel better. I'm not guilty and I konw excatly what I've done. If that means an extra 3 or 4 or 5 or even 10 points then thats what I need to deal with. Going on WW isn't just about only eating a certain amount of points, it's also about learning the consequences of eating too much of certain foods.

I've also come to realize that the activity point are not as hard to attain as previously thought. Yesterday I went to Coolidge Corner and then was planning on going to Copley. Instead of hopping back on the train to go to Copley I ended up walking. I earned 6 extra points for the day for that. Woo Woo! That meant yesterday wasn't such a disaster. I went to Boloco to get lunch and I got a meatless Mediterranean wrap and checked the points values when I got home. The insides weren't bad. They were only 6 points. The wrap itself however was 5 points! I was like oh my gosh! Thats almost doible the inside of the wrap. I've learned my lesson though. Next time i will get it in a bowl instead....

That's about it for updating. The real update will come on Monday when I acctualle weigh in! EEP!

Starting Up Again

Last September I started up on WeightWatchers and did rather well. There were some ups and downs and some bumps in the road but I lost a total of about 14 lbs during my school year. This isn't an incredible amount but I was proud. For my first real weight loss attempt I had had success. Over the summer however, and up until now...I have only kept off 6 of those pounds. I had stopped counting my points values because Danny, my boyfriend of 8 years, was home from school and well, we love to eat. We don;t just love to eat really, we love to eat good food. We plan our weekends. One weekend it's Tapas, another Dim Sum, another French food. We don't eat a whole lot all the time but when we go out to eat it is a high calorie delicious meal. So to my dismay when I weighed myself this morning, thinking well it is my weigh in day, I was horribly disappointed in myself. I have dropped the ball. I stopped counting points. I stopped going to the gym. I though everything might magically stay the same. It hasn't. My size 12 jeans are too tight. Those jeans that I worked SO hard to get into. I feel like I wasted all the time and energy I put into last year. But, instead of being upset and disappointed for too long, I'm picking the ball up again. I started counting my points again and I'm going to do my best to stick to them. This month might be hard, as Danny is still home and will be until the end of August, but I will try to save my extra 35 points for when we go out on our food excursions. This will be my transition time, and September I will become more strict!
Lets hope this works!
