The Road To Skinny Me!

My journey…and every thought along the way!

Week 17… March 2, 2011

-.8 lbs.

It’s something, but definitely not something to be excited about it.  I have been seriously slacking…I haven’t been counting or even watching what I eat.  It is easy to make excuses, but ultimately I’m just not doing it! 

This always happens!  I hit a 30-40 pound weight loss and then I stop trying.  I keep it off for 6 months, a year, then slowly start gaining it back plus some (or in my latest case, plus a lot!).  This is ridiculous!  Why do I do this to myself?!  I need to lose this weight, not only for me, but for my son and my family.  I want another baby so bad, but obviously not enough to not overeat.  I mean is pizza, ice cream or any food in general really worth more to me than having another child?!  Really?!

Something needs to change.  I need to kick my butt in gear and just do it!  Why is that SO hard?!


Week 16…? February 27, 2011

Alrighty…  First of all I have totally lost track of my weeks.  I think this is week 16, but I am not for sure.  And second of all, I have been severely slacking on keeping you all up to date!  I hadn’t been weighing in due to sickness, Riley then me, and one cancelled meeting due to the blizzard and therefore I have not had that accountability factor.  It is crazy how much I rely on that to keep my in check, but it works!  So needless to say I wasn’t doing so hot when it came to tracking my points.  However, being sick caused me to drop quite a few pounds, not eating for two days will do that!  I do know I gained some of it back, though…

Anyway, I was finally able to weigh in this past Tuesday.  I was down 4.8 lbs.  Not great for a three-week total, but it’s a negative number, so I’ll take it!  This puts me just over 40 lbs. total weight loss!  So I went and saw my “reward movie”, Gnomeo and Juliet.  It was pretty cute!

Now I just need to get back to counting and start exercising!



Week 14… February 8, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christine @ 10:14 PM

I’m just posting to let you know that I haven’t weighed in for the past two weeks…

Last week the meeting was cancelled (at least I am assuming, I didn’t bother calling to check) because of the blizzard.  This week (today) I am just getting over being sick and really just didn’t feel like taking a shower, plus I had a headache.

On the up side, being sick has helped my shed some extra pounds (based on my scale)!  It’s not a method I would recommend, but it’s a perk to being too sick to your stomach to eat anything.

Hopefully I will make it next week!



Week 12… January 25, 2011

I have a sick, sick little boy on my hands…  It’s so funny what mother hood does to you.  I never would have thought I could be puked on by someone else and not follow suit!  It’s like you become super human!  LOL  Anyway…  I wasn’t able to stay for my meeting, but I did stop by and weigh in. 

Drum roll, please…

I hit my 10% goal!  I lost another 2.8 lbs. for a total of 36 lbs.!

I feel great and people are really noticing, which is a huge bonus for me!  I love when people comment…it helps keep me motivated.  It’s all paying off!



Week 11… January 20, 2011

Time is really flying by!  I can not believe I have been doing Weight Watchers for 11 weeks now!  I know it’s because it isn’t a diet, but instead a life style change.  I hate to say that it’s easy because I don’t always feel that way, but it really IS easy!  I mean, I have never before lost weight while still being able to eat pizza, cookies and ice cream!  It’s great!

Anyway…I didn’t count again this past week!  Shame on me!  Despite this I still lost another 2 lbs. for a total of 33.2 lbs.!  I’m getting close to my next goal!

I am counting this week…I have to.  I made a deal to turn in my food tracker where I keep track of my points.  I have been good and counted the last two days…  Don’t what to get in trouble! 😉



Week 10… January 12, 2011

I didn’t count this week…  I just couldn’t get back into it after my trip.  I didn’t go hog-wild, but I didn’t write anything down.  For most meals I would figure out the points of the meal in my head, but I didn’t keep a running count for the day.  This week I really need to start tracking again!!

Despite not counting I had a good week!  Down another 1.8 lbs.  Yippy!  I am pretty happy with that, I would have been happy with not losing anything.  I feel great and people are really noticing, which is a huge motivator!  Now of course I want to continue losing weight, I was just in a really good place this week and I was gonna be OK with whatever the scale said.

So that’s a total of 31.2 lbs. lost!  That is how my Riley weighs…when you think about it that way it’s awesome.  I’ve lost a tiny person!  I usually wont carry him into stores, I hold his hand and he walks, because it to difficult for me.  I would be out of breath by the time we got to the door.  The other day I carried him in, no big deal, no difference than me walking in myself.  That was when it occurred to me that was carrying the weight I had lost…and it’s a lot!  It’s hard for me to see it that way, but I’m starting to!



Week 9… January 5, 2011

Alrighty…Yes, week 9.  I missed my week 8 post due to my Colorado trip.

I was in Colorado for a week and a half over Christmas and New Years.  Great trip!  Got to see family and just have a great time together.  A lot of eating out, eating the left overs the next day, ordering in pizza and my favorite, appetizers and finger food for dinner Christmas Eve! 

Man was it hard not to just eat everything in sight!  But I didn’t.  I made healthier choices and when that wasn’t always easy to do I just watched my portions.  It definitely was not easy and there were meals where I ate more than I probably should have.  Especially New Years Eve when there were cheese and crackers and pepperoni and salami and chips and dip sitting out all night, but there were also veggies.  So for every “bad” thing I ate I would eat two or three veggies.  The biggest part of it, though, was just the snacking its self.  It’s very easy to lose track of how much you have put in your mouth!  On top of all that…I had quite a few glasses of wine and quite a few margaritas (made with a lite margarita mix) throughout the week.

Almost everyday I had a good, low point breakfast, but those were the only points I counted most days…sometimes lunch, but it was hard.  We ate a lot of things that I couldn’t get specific points on and a lot of other times I was just too lazy to try to figure it out!  I know!  That’s pretty bad, but I was on vacation!  OK, that’s an excuse…

Through out the week I was worried.  I wasn’t counting, I felt like I was eating and drinking more than I should.  I had myself convinced that my butt looked a little bigger.  I was worried!

So when I got on the scale and was 6 whole pounds lighter than two weeks ago I was happily surprised!  I feel great!  I was able to make good choices and watch my portions and I was successful!  It’s sticking and it’s working!
