Starting Over 01/04/2010

I haven't been on the scale in 2 weeks and I don't plan to until 01/04/2010.  I'm smart enough to know that I won't be on plan until after the new year is over so I'm not going to sweat it. 

On January 4th, 2010 I will step on the scale, log my "starting" weight and start over with my weight loss journey.  I'm ready to get started so I can detox from all the junk I've been eating.  I just know this week is not the time to start it if I have any hope of sticking to it.

I'll be back at the end of week one (01/10/10) to report my results.

Weigh In 12/07/09

Lost 3.2 lbs this week. A little disappointing since I was down more than that on Friday but I'll take it.  With this being my first week back on WW and working out I expected a little more but 3.2 is great.

The Party 12/04/09

We had our holiday band party last night and there was a ton of food and even more desserts.  I had a little of almost all the food which included barbecue, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, etc.  Since everything was homemade I tried to guess on the points as best I could.  I ended up adding about 27 points just for dinner, luckily I had some flex and activity points to swap so I'm not in the negative. 

For dessert, I had 1/2 piece of chess pie.  Way to rich to eat any more than that.  Drank a couple sips of champagne and then had water the rest of the night.  Feel like I did pretty well all things considered.

Looking forward to Monday to see if I maintain that 3.6 lb loss I saw yesterday morning.  Let's hope it's even more of a loss by then!

Day 5 Update

Going well this week, done some sort of work out 3 of the last 4 days and so far, I'm down 3.6 pounds since Monday.  Not too shabby.  I just need to make it through the party friday night and eat light so I can hang on to that.

I'm off for the next 4 days so I will be cleaning and hopefully getting a little extra work outs in.  Can't wait to see what the scale says on Monday.  :-)

Day 3

Last night was a little rough, had some chocolate and a cookie but still have plenty of flex points left for the band party on Friday.  Today, we stopped at Hardees and I had an egg and cheese croissant, finding out later that they are 10 points…Yikes!  Especially since I’d already used about 5 points on breakfast at home.  Lunch was a grilled chicken sandwich and a side salad with lite Italian dressing from Chik Fil-A.  Unsweetened tea to drink for a little variety from the water.  Only had about 34 ounces of water so far but the day is young so I’m sure there will be plenty more before bed.


Did 3T Turbo sculpting again this morning even though I didn’t want to.  Josh wants to go to Subway for dinner…he is addicted to a turkey sub (plain).  Yes, plain…he’s so weird!  At least he’s branching out and trying something other than chicken nuggets.

Day 2 Wrap Up

Did well, at within my points all day but splurged on a chocolate chip cookie at subway (free with a combo).  Still have almost all my flex points left and normally I blow them in the first 2 days! 

Feeling better in the joints after my workout this morning.  I think I'll try to get up and do the short toning work out each morning cause my legs felt much better today after I did it this morning. 

Time to go do homework and watch TBL (as soon as Obama shuts up)!  :-)

Day 2

I got up early, did a work out, had a 6 point breakfast…good start!  Made tuna salad for lunch and had an apple at work.  Picked up a box of the Smart Food caramel corn that are only 1 point per package and very good + 5 grams of fiber per bag.  Ate my tuna salad for lunch, almost walked to Chik Fil A to get a chicken sandwich and talked myself out of it.  Instead, went down and filled up my water bottles so I can add to the 80 ounces of water that I’ve already consumed this morning.  J


I also, took the 4 flights of stairs to get back to my department.  After I eat my apple, I’ll have 10 points left for dinner which is quite enough.  Planning to walk on the treadmill while I was TBL tonight!  Can’t wait for that!
