I'm back...I think! I think I am back on the right track! I am on day 2 of being back on plan...and I feel good so far! The past two days, as soon as the girls wake up, I've been pushing them in the stroller, and going 2.1 miles. It may not sound like a lot, but it is really hilly, and not to mention I am pushing 80+ pounds of kids/stroller! I am really tired when I come back...and it takes me about 40 minutes. It feels good when I'm done though!

So, I really caught baby fever this kinda hit fast! :-) I refuse to get pregnant before hitting Lifetime, so I NEED to just hunker down and get serious. is just so much easier said than done! Thank you for all the encouraging words on my last really does make a difference when I know people are reading, commenting, and going through the same things as I am!

I'm off to have some 1 point popcorn! Once the summer slows down, I will start posting pics of my food again! Keep up the good work!

I hate this sometimes

Why? Why can't I be that person who can eat whatever they want and not gain an ounce? I have just been really frustrated lately, and to be honest, on top of other things, it made me eat this past week. I mean, eat. Whatever. Whenever. I hate when I do that too...its not like it fixes anything! I WAS only 2 pounds away from lifetime...and now, oh my, I don't even want to know. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't even blog, because it seems that every post is just telling everyone how bad I've been doing. Isn't that encouraging? HA.
I'm just going to be honest. I hate losing weight. I hate having to do Weight Watchers. I hate having to have to think of every morsel of food that enters my mouth, and where it will add an extra pound to my body after I eat it. I hate people that have flat stomachs after having children...and after only having 2 kids, I hate the fact that I have like 30 rolls. ( ok...I don't actually hate the PEOPLE who have flat know what I mean! :-) Sigh, ok I'm done now. I'm trying to be encouraged to start fresh and new and lose the weight I need to get to lifetime. Sorry for boring you....just sharing my life.

2 pounds away!!

Well, I am 2 pounds away from Lifetime!! That is not my goal weight, but it is the highest I can be for my height, so I picked that as my "goal". I'm really excited, but honestly, I haven't lost weight in like 2 months, so as close as it seems really far away too. I'm going to try REALLY hard to do perfect this week, and not use any of my Flex points if I don't REALLY have to. Tonight I have my nephews birthday party with pizza and cake, but I am going to bring my own dessert. I just want to do this...and not have to pay anymore!!!! I still would like to lose another 10 pounds IDEALLY....but I would love to do it without spending $40 a month!

Oh yes....and the smore recipe on WW Chicks blog....A M A Z I N G. All I can say is I wasted 8 of my points on them yesterday...but they are so delcious! :-)

Have a great week!!

Why did I just eat like three handfuls of my girls animal crackers? Did great all day, and then did that. I stink at this sometimes. I am never going to get to goal doing things like this...what is wrong with me???? I know all the information in my head...but sometimes actually DOING it is another story. Sometimes I wonder if I will EVER lose these last 6-8 pounds. Sigh...I'm not happy with myself.

August 1st

Good morning everyone! I don't know if you have seen yet, but please visit Jen's blog and send your condolences to her. Her mom, who was her best friend, was tragically killed on Friday when a card pulled out of their driveway and hit her as she was taking her grandson on a walk. I seriously was so saddened by this all day yesterday. It just reminds me how short and fragile life really is. Please pray for her and her family.

Here is how my day went yesterday...

Breakfast - 1 cup Raisin Bran with 1/2 milk - 4 points

Snack - Fiber Plus Bar - 2 points

Snack - 1 cup blueberries - 1 point ( which were AMAZING! I got them at a Farmer's market, and wow...they were soooooo good! )

Lunch - Subway Turkey Salad - I guessed 5 points, but it probably wasn't quite that much. It was just lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, 3 slices of turkey, some mexican blend cheese on top, and a couple squirts of the Honey Mustard dressing, cause they said it was the lowest fat one they had. I have to brag for a minute...we went to Wal-Mart for lunch, and I got my girls the macaroni and cheese that they make there. Let me just tell you, if you like macaroni and cheese...DON'T try it! It is so unbelieveable! I could eat it all day long! BUT, yesterday, I got it for them, FED it to them, and didn't even have ONE NOODLE!!! YEAH FOR ME!!!! :-)

Then I got the kids Subway M'M cookies for of the yummiest things! So I went and bought myself the WW brownies, and had one of those instead - 2 points

Snack - Popcorn - 1 point

Dinner - Turkey Burger with cheese, on a Sandwich Thin and fresh, steamed green beans - 6 points

Snack - WW 1 point bar - 1 point

Ok, so at this point in the day, I had 2 points left, and I was going to have a Vitalicious brownie, with frosting, to finish off my day. WELL, my husband called on his way home from being gone all day, and said,"I have a suprise for you!" He brought home Bryers Mint Chocolate Chip ice FAVE!! So, I had 3/4 of a cup for about 4 points, and stopped there.

So, I went over my points today by 2, but I did work out for 30 minutes on the elliptical, so it probably evened out if I used my activity points. Today is one of my best friend's daughter's 1st birthday today, so they are having a huge picnic/party for her. I am going to try my best to stick to plan! I will keep you posted for sure! Have a great Sunday....and hug your family never know how long you will have them.

July 31st

Here is how my day looked yesterday....sorry, no pictures, but it is better than nothing!

Breakfast - 1 1/3 cup Honey comb with 1/2 cup milk - 3 points

Snack - Special K Bar - 2 points

Snack - 1 point Brownie - 1 point

Lunch - 2 Fat Free Hot Dogs, 1 sandwich thin, ketchup and 15 Fat Free Pringles - 5 points

Dinner - Spinach Lasanga, carrots and broccoli with 2 TBSP of 3 cheese Light Ranch Dressing, 1 sandwich thin with spray butter - 12 points

Dessert - Vitabrownie with Chocolate Frosting - 2 points

So I ended up using 25 points out of my 24 I'm supposed to have, so I decided I needed to earn an activity point! After my kids went to bed, I did my elliptical for 45 minutes and burned 680 calories! I don't know how accurate the whole "calories burnt" is, but all I know is I was sweating like a pig, and I worked my butt off! I also got all my water in, so I felt pretty good about the day! :-)
