Weigh in...Yeah

Today was the big weigh in day. I was not sure about what the scale would say, but was hopefully. I know I have stayed within my points this week. I had a feeling that I lost at least a pound. However, when I was on the scale and heard that it was 3.2, I was ecstatic. I am so glad that I didn't give up hope on losing. I lost another 5 pounds to make it 15.8. I am only 1.4 pounds from 10% of my body weight. I won't get my hopes up on the 10%. I will be happy with any loss. If it takes two weeks for the 10% then be it, but I am going to be positive.

I have notice that taking the vitamins have really helped me out. I feel good when I take them. I think my body is readjusting to this. Now my next goal is to fit in more a physical workout. Right now with Tball, I think I can get some activity points there. I need to find something else. I really want to go back to Zumba. I think I will start back in a few weeks. I just need to see what my schedule is and how to fit it in.

I haven't measured myself with the tape measure yet. I will do that in the morning. I know I will see inches dwindling. I guess now I need to work on toning. My stomach is begging for it, but my mind is saying in a few minutes. Too bad a few minutes ends up being a lengthy vacation.

My goal this week is to stay positive and not stress.

Weigh In Tomorrow

I am hoping for a loss. I am a little scared. I am hoping to see my weight in the
140's. I have worked out a little more differently. I practiced with Donovan's T ball team yesterday. The only reason being is that I am the coach. I felt old and worn out after being those lovely 4 year olds. It was so much fun.

I am going to do a little workout tonight. Wish me luck and I will post my loss tomorrow.

The Week Ahead

I am finding myself tired all the time, and not sure if it is getting back in the groove or something else. I love Weight Watchers and the support group. I am just curious what would happen if I had no support group. Would I be motivated.

I seem to be asking myself what is this all worth. What is my purpose for losing weight. Is it because I really want to so I can get healthy? Did I jump on the bandwagon? Actually the last thing I would like to do. I want to do things because I want to and no one has a say in my weight loss and I am satisfied with my choice.

I had a slice of pizza tonight for dinner. I actually had to make myself eat but that was quick. It was 8 points. I have two points left. I am not sure if I will use them. Even after I ate the pizza I feel like yuck. It was not even good. What was I thinking?

I feel like I am just overly exhausted and just ready for a break from work, and just the daily grind of worrying about TAKS. I am thinking this week I may not have a loss, but I am starting to think it has to do with stress. I would love to have a vacation that the word work, and TAKS were not mention. Who knows maybe I can find that serenity soon.

Spring Break...Glad it is Over

Well I had my weigh in today. Not too hot. I gained 1.8 pounds. I really wasn't shocked knowing that at the beginning of the week I did not do too hot. However, I am shock that it was that much of a gain. I was doing a lot of walking and I did kickboxing from Fit TV twice.

Now that the scale day is over, I can go an concentrate on my week. My goal is to stay firm on my points. I know that won't be too hard going back to work. I am not sure why but it will be. I guess I was out of my routine. I think that is something I am unable to adjust to. I guess I need to figure out a way to deal with adjustments when the summer comes.

One positive thing is I have changed my vitamins. I have moved from the regular ones to gummie ones. I feel like a wimp, but I need to get some form of vitamin in my diet. That is one of the thing WW has on their daily intake tracker.

The second positive thing is I have done two recipes from WW. I loved the strawberry swirl, and loved the garlic lemon scallops. They were great. I am so glad Meredith posted that. I am not sure I would of found that or cook scallops.

My goals this week will be to take a vitamin, and double up on water. I think TOM is coming for a visit and that makes me panic. Another thing I need to work on is getting enough sleep. I am going to try to get to bed no later than 10:30. I will have to see how that works. Wish me luck.

I know I will have a terrific week and hope all my WW friends do too.

New Recipe

I love that with WW, I am able to find new recipes to try out. I have tried a new tilipia recipe and it was great. Even Scott my husband enjoyed it. It is the following.

Servings: 6 servings • Total Time: 15 minutes • Points: 5 ww points


6 -6 oz tilapia filets
* 4 cloves garlic, crushed
* 2 tbsp butter
* 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
* 4 tsp fresh parsley
* salt and pepper
* cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400°.

Melt butter on a low flame in a small sauce pan. Add garlic and saute on low for about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice and shut off flame.

Spray the bottom of a baking dish lightly with cooking spray.

Place the fish on top and season with salt and pepper. Pour the lemon butter mixture on the fish and top with fresh parsley.

Bake at 400° until cooked, about 15 minutes.

6 oz tilapia = 4 pts
1 tsp butter = 1 pt

I got this recipe from Ginny's Skinny Blog. I would highly recommend this blog. She has awesome recipes. I hope to share more recipes and stories about weight loss.


I am not sure why I am frustrated. I didn't gain any weight. I am right under 12 pounds. I really thought I would of loss something, but oh well. No gain is better than a gain.

My frustration is on what I am eating that is causing me to be no loss. I know that this past week I did use more Smart One lunches and breakfasts. I guess I will cut that out some. I hope that is the problem. I love cooking but last week was extremely hard.

I have been working out a little more than usual. I did get up Thursday and Friday morning. I did 15 minute workout. I am trying to do the Rise and Shine Challenge on the WW site. I rested on Sat and probably tomorrow. I will go back to the challenge on Monday. I imagine you are suppose to be doing the challenge everyday.

I think my goal next week is to only have one diet soda. Friday I broke down and had 3. I will also work on eating more power foods. I am not sure what the power foods are but will try anything to change my eating habits.
