Weekly Weigh-In/Working Out/WW-Friendly Snacks with Points+ Included

I am down another 0.8 lbs.!  Not too bad.  Of course, I’d like to see more come off, but I know that will happen in time.  I’m not going to let myself get discouraged.  Hey, it’s still moving in the right direction, right?  🙂  Overall, it’s been a really great week!  I even went out […]

Get Moving/Training When Out of Shape/Make A Vision Board or Book

I am on my second week of Interval Training and I love it!  By the time I’m finished, I’m sweaty and yucky and I feel GREAT!!!  Here is my workout for this week: Monday-Saturday: Warm up for 5 minutes on the treadmill @3 mph Jog 1 minute @4mph Power Walk 4 minutes @3.3 mph Repeat […]

Weekly Weigh In/Interval Running

Today I attempted running for the first time in a long time.  The verdict:  it doesn’t suck.  Much.  I suppose the longer I go at it, I’ll get the famous “runner’s high” everyone speaks of, but for now, all I can think is “Ouch,” and “Dear Lord, take me now!”  I am doing interval training […]

Bad Days/Stress Eating/Getting Back on the Horse

Bad days are inevitable in this whole losing weight game.  Especially if you’re an emotional eater (like me).  Today has been one of those days for me.  The past few days have been really stressful at work.  I don’t know if it’s the full moon or what, but people have been rude and snippy.  I […]

Obstacles? What Obstacles?/Have Faith in Yourself

Today I was faced with a big obstacle:  a breakfast buffet.  *cue the Exorcist soundtrack now* At the library, we had our annual volunteer appreciation breakfast and it was a catered event.  I was actually quite nervous about going. I woke up at 4:30 a.m. in a panic, worried about what I could/could not eat.  […]

Weekly Weigh-In :)

I had my weekly weigh-in this morning (I do Weight Watchers online, so no meetings or need to do my weigh-ins in front of other people!) & I have lost another 2.2 pounds since last week!!!  I am so happy right now!  🙂  I know that I won’t see such big losses every week, but […]

What Diets Have You Tried?/Moving Your Body/Find a Diet Buddy :)

What diets have you tried?  Did you succeed or fail on them?  I have tried just about every diet known to man.  In high school, I was a size 0.  Yep.  ZERO.  A gust of wind could’ve blown me over.  I didn’t feel comfortable in my too-skinny body though.  In college, I toggled between a […]

Weight Watchers, Weigh-In, Food Suggestions, Rewards, Best Husband Ever…

I love Weight Watchers!  I truly wish I’d tried this program years ago.  I am seeing results every week and have been sticking to the program.  I am not working out as much as I’d like (I twisted my ankle recently), but once I heal I plan to go back to my power walking/jogging routine. […]
