Weigh in Missed

Well I was unable to go to weigh in on Saturday. Scott worked so I did not have anyone to watch my little darling. However I did weigh myself on the scale and it was a 2 pound loss. I am excited to see what the scale will say on Saturday. I hated missing, but I just couldn't get Donovan up that early to go to a weigh in.

I received my vegetables from Riverbottom Farms. They were actually great. Donovan is loving the grapes. I made salsa but realize what was missing. Cilantro. I will be ordering from them again. It will be next week.

I have been doing more activity than I have ever. Today we took Donovan to the park. We walked the track. Of course Donovan and I raced one another. Too bad my shorts were falling off my tush.

I wish the other ladies would keep a blog. I think it would help for them to journal what is going on with them. I think this has helped me out a lot. I am glad to have an outlet about eating. The blog is great. I wish I could do more daily blogging but right now it will have to be just once a week.

Monday before TOM

Why is TOM going to be my downfall this week? I know it is coming around the corner, but why does it have to effect my weight so much. I guess I will take the advice of some of the other WW members of the WW site. Double up on my water, watch my sodium intake. I hope that works. I will be really upset if I don't have a tenth of a pound weight loss.

I am wishing I were able to loss more than a pound or two, but I will take whatever I can get. I find it hard at times to lose weight. My husband seems to notice, but I really don't notice. It seems to be the same bulge at my stomach that I see.

I love my support system of friends who are going through the same thing I am. It makes it easier to do WW with people who are really in it to lose and not doing it for a time and then going away. I love the support and wouldn't change it for the world.

This week will be tough with TOM, but I think I will kick TOM to the curb and find that happy medium.

WW Weigh in

Well my weigh in was great. I loss zero and I gained zero. So I feel blessed that it was zero. I am happy that I have loss 10.4 and if I loss more great, if not then I will continue on this journey and find out what what I need to do just to stay healthy.

On this journey I have learned about my eating habits. They really weren't bad, it was just the way I did it. I might miss a meal and over indulge in one meal. I think that is very easy when you are super duper hungry. Also I can still have some of the foods I love but in moderation. The key there is moderation. One way I have been staying on track is drinking water. I can't remember the last time I drank this much water. I have cut down to one diet soda a day.

I can honestly say I am learning a lot of new things for the weekly meetings and the websites. I love the tips that are posted and love sharing them with my friends.

This week I expect to see inches go away. Now I know that won't show up on the scale, but the scale isn't where I am going to get my happiness from. It is the choices I make.

Saturday Weigh in

Well I should be happy, but am not. I went to my weigh in. I did lose weight, but I was hoping to break the 10 pound mark. Close but no cigar. I lost 1.2 lbs, and down to 155.4. I did reach the 5% of my weight goal. So I guess I should be celebrating.

I guess I am upset because I stayed away from the chocolate. Thanks to Anna. I found the Reese's cups on my shelf. Oh my word. The kids were driving me crazy at school and it was just so tempting. So Anna came by to do an intervention for me. I was so close to having the chocolate and peanut butter. Oh my word. I just can't describe how I wanted that peanut butter.

I did try a new recipe this week. A great one. It was Egg Drop Soup.

4 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
3 tbsp. cornstarch
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1 1/3 c thawed frozen peas

1. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water in a small cup until smooth;
whisk cornstarch mixture into brothe . Simmer until soup thickens
slightly, about 2 minutes .Reduce heat untile broth barely simmers. Slowly
drizzle eggs into soup while stirring quickly in circular motion. Cook for 1 minut and remove from heat. Stir in vinegar.

2. Meanwhile, heat peas according to package direction and divide evenly into 4
bowls. Ladle soup over peas.

This is 3 points plus per serving. You can add for garnish chopped fresh cilantro, and drizzle a little low sodium soy sauce.

I definitely recommend this soup. I am so glad I found it through a friends weight watchers cookbook.
