Yes!

Okay.. so I started weight watchers on Friday. It has been an interesting adjustment and I've found that my biggest problem is that I DON'T EAT ENOUGH! The first day I had 18 points left for dinner.... a little too many... the next couple of days I have had around 12 points at dinner time. I'm trying to learn to spread my food out better, but am making sure to eat all of my points. I'm not giving myself exercise points though... It's hard enough to eat the points I've got! (FYI... I have 29 points because I am nursing!)

I went to the grocery store the other day and there were some samples of this cheese slices... they are made by Borden and they are tomato basil flavored... (well.. it's like white processed cheese with tomato basil in it) the sample was a grilled cheese sandwich with this cheese. It was way yummy and with my 45 calorie bread and spray butter, I can enjoy a yummy grilled cheese sandwich for only 3 points!!!

I've also been running outside more, at the high school. I really like being outside in this way too pretty weather.

I have made a commitment to myself to give weight watchers a chance without being psycho and so... I will not weigh myself for one whole week. Hopefully by next week I will be in the 150's because last time I checked... the 160's had me by the toes! I think that this month will not be nearly as great as other months have been for me, but I will be happy as long as I continue to lose weight and KNOW that I am working hard to get what I want. I really hope it works for me because I am OCD when it comes to numbers, so counting points is really fun for me! It's also been fun to NOT look at carbohydrate content.... I was going nuts with that... so the fact that the points only involve calories, fat and fiber is a nice change! :o)

I hope you love it. I am still doing it (for the most part) It is nice to be able to have treats and stuff...it makes you feel like you are living and tasting life. still.

And with WW just make sure you are getting in all of your healthy guidelines...fruits, vegetables, milk, oil...

Keep up the good work!

I'm so glad to hear you're eating normally again. Listening to you say you're never going to eat bread again was freakin' me out. I just couldn't imagine that as a permanent lifestyle change. Yay for you!! And I'd love to come run with you outside. I really enjoyed it at the 5k. Running on the treadmill gets boring!

I never said I wasn't going to eat bread again. I said I wasn't going to eat WHITE bread again.. and I'm still not going to. I've been eating whole grain bread since this competition started.

Good luck with that. Your problem with not eating enough sounds like what happened on the last biggest loser. You need that fuel to get a good workout in! Hope to see you today.

I'm glad that you realized that you weren't eating enough...especially when we told you that at our dinner out at Chili's. It's good to have the second opinion, right? :) What a great idea to have a grilled cheese sandwich like that! It sounds so yummy. And 35 pounds is incredible! That's twice as much as I have lost since we started. I'd be pretty dang proud of myself if I were you. Way to go!
