Want A Snack

I’m getting to that point in the day where I’m either hungry or I just think I am.  Drinking all the water I can to try to make the feeling pass.  Passed up the Iced Pumpkin Loaf that was in the 8th floor kitchen, skipped the candy in the jar on the desk up there.  Drinking nothing but water so far…well, I had 2 sips of a coke this morning but that is all.  Threw the rest in the trash cause I didn’t want the temptation.  Let’s hope I can keep up the momentum once I get home.

Day 1 - So Far, So Good


Today is going well but I didn’t get to walk at lunch like I wanted.  Went out and it was way too cold and windy so I did a couple laps in the basement and took 4 flights of stairs back to my cubicle.  So far, I have eaten 2 eggs, a pear, 2 pkgs of oatmeal (no sugar added) and ramen noodles.  I have 2 apples for this afternoon which leaves me with 12.5 points for dinner.  I’ve allotted 7 points for refried beans, a little cheese, tomatoes and a flour tortilla so that gives me a little wiggle room for a snack of some popcorn before bed.


Let’s see if I can keep this up!

Weigh In 11/30/09

Somehow, I was able to maintain at 235.4 this week.  Probably due to all the moving that I did to get some junk thrown out and over to the storage unit.  Now, on to the re-start of WW (for the 10th time probably).  It's the start of a new week and I've got to get back on track NOW!!!  I've gained back over half of the weight I lost last year and I cannot do it anymore.

I'll be blogging if I feel the desire to eat something bad in hopes it will deter me from doing it.  We'll see how that goes.  :-)

Blog to the rescue

Starting tomorrow...any time I eat or feel like I want to eat I'm going to blog. This could be about what I'm eating, what I avoided, how I felt about it...etc. Maybe that will help me pinpoint why I overeat!

What is wrong with me? 11/29/09

I did well on Thanksgiving...didn't overdo it and ate small portions.  The rest of the week has been horrendous.  I just keep gaining and gaining and I can't stop.  It's been like 2+ pounds per week and I'm back up over 235 again. 

Tomorrow, I weigh in again and I'm going to try to start over and get back into the workout routine.  That is what is killing me.  If I would actually work out, I would be losing weight but I just can't get motivated.  MUST GET MOVING NOW!

Need to take more pictures to update my starting over point...AGAIN!

Weigh In 11/16/09

Gained 1 pound, probably from all the fast food we ate this weekend while out doing errands.  Feeling crappy cause my legs are really hurting and it's often difficult to get up and walk around.  Hoping this honey/cinnamon regimen will help some.  I really need to get back into my workout routine ASAP!
Today I am starting a couple things. Trying honey & cinnamon for the arthritis and cutting back on the caffeine. Getting back to more water again...feels better

Weigh In 11/09/09

I maintained this week, miraculous considering I didn't get much of a work out in at all.  I did do better with my food so that's probably why.  I have got to get the rest of this weight off because I'm back to the point where it's getting hard to stand/walk because of the pain in my joints.  I've got to get focused on the workouts again so I can start losing.  I am going to cancel my gym membership because I haven't been in 3 months and it's $70 a month for both of us.  We can walk the neighborhood, the treadmill or do one of the 25 workout DVD's I have.  There's no need to pay that much a month for something that I never use and I hadn't even lost any weight the whole time I was going anyway so...I don't need it.

I'm sure alot of my problem is the job I took in August of 08, that's when I started gaining again and it's probably related to the increased stress of this job.  I like the job better but the stress level can get overwhelming at times.

Monday was...ok

I had a great plan for the week and I was going to stick to it.  I got to work and my boss had made homemade chicken and dumplings.  I had one small bowl and then stopped looking at them.  I have no idea how many points they are so I counted the generic entry on the WW tracker at 8 points and hope that's enough to cover it.

I still used about 1/2 my flex points the first day of my week so I've got to be careful this week for sure.  We have a pitch in on friday so I don't know what I'm going to do.  I need to save the rest of my flex points for that if I can so I don't blow the rest of the week in one day.

Yesterday was casual day and all my jeans are really tight again...not good since I already had to "buy up" twice in the last year.  I am not going to buy anything bigger as motivation to get the rest of this weight off.  Still not real interested in working out but I walked at work yesterday and plan to do so each day since it's not too hot outside.

Day 2 of the week should be good.  I don't think there will be any weird food around at work today.  Since I moved I sit right next to the "special food station" so I smell it all day.  It's very annoying!

Weigh In 11/02/09

This week, I gained 2 pounds.  It had nothing to do with Halloween as I didn't buy any candy and Josh didn't even go trick or treating.  It was just poor food decisions, lots of running and eating fast food in between. 

This week, I have stocked up on low point foods and will try really hard to get back on track.  I have worked out in at least 2 months so I'll have to move back into that slowly.  I plan to walk at work again and do some weight training at home as often as I can.

I'm still down over 40 lbs from my highest but I've gained back more than half of what I had lost at this time last year.  It's time to start over and get serious...again!

Current weight = 232.2 lbs
Highest weight = 275.0 lbs (10/2007)
Lowest weight = 186.4 lbs (10/26/08)
