I did DDR again this morning! It was great. It gets me going and I feel really good after doing it. Please pray that I will continue to do this during the week if not just to get me up and awake (I hate mornings, hmm, let me rephrase that, I hate waking up, mornings are ok). : )
Also, please pray that I can take a good after picture. I keep trying and since I am my worst critic (that's what my husband says) I tend to think they all still look bad. I really want to post one, especially since so many have asked for it.

So I did something totally new this morning, I danced before getting ready! It was 4 songs, about 6 minutes long. It was worth 1 activity point! I don’t know what inspired me to do that, but I still had time to get ready and be on time for work. I don’t know if I will do this again, but it was kind of fun. Not as fun as when Justin is there with me though.
I weigh in tonight and I am not sure that it will be a good turn out. But I have learned that my stomach can no longer take a lot of chocolate! I had a lot of chocolate yesterday and 4 pieces this morning (which I did count by the way, well today’s I counted). So I may weigh more, but it is good to know that my stomach has changed its mind on what it can handle! (Yes my stomach does have a mind of its own). I honestly didn’t think that would happen. Not that my desire for having chocolate will go away, ever, but how much I eat will change. So that is good!

I am in such a great mood today! I really feel like I can get back on track, even if the scales go up tomorrow!!! It is amazing what a piece of Dove Chocolate and a good doctor’s appointment can do for your attitude. Plus, inside the Dove Chocolate it has a little message for you and mine today said ‘Sing along with the elevator music’! That is so me! I am so going to sing in the elevator the next time I am in one that has music, even if it is classical. Have a great day everyone. Thanks for your prayers, keep them coming.

I wish my hunger would go away today! It just seems that no matter what I eat today I am hungry five minutes later. So far today I have had 12.5 points! I try to limit my morning points to 10, and even then I try and stay below 10! I have had oatmeal, fiber one bar, pretzels, broccoli and cheddar, pudding. Why am I still hungry? I can honestly say it is not because I need more fiber in my diet. Now, while writing this I can’t think of anything but what sounds good for lunch. The bad thing is that I am going to eat what I brought, either a Healthy Choice steamer or a Healthy Choice pizza. HMM, but what sounds better perhaps the
Last night Justin and I did a 7 song work out on our DDR. 7 songs with like a 2 second break in-between each song. How crazy is that. I was beat by the end. Lately we have just been doing a 4 song work out and then taking a break and doing it again. It is amazing how much that break helps out! I couldn’t do another one after not having a break. I guess we will just have to work our way up to it. Although, Justin could probably go and go for a long time after me!
I just had a thought that maybe the reason I am so hungry today is because I have actually been working pretty hard this morning. Well up until the point that I started typing my blog ; )

Ah yes, One hour and thirty minutes until I weigh in! I don’t think I lost this week, which is really annoying, since I have tried hard this week. I didn’t accomplish exercising everyday this week. Which is ok, as one of my friends pointed out I don’t want to get burnt out and then give up all together. (Thanks to Rebecca for that encouragement).
My day has turned out better than I thought it was going to this morning. I have a wonderful husband who let me cry to him via email and pour out my heart even though he was at work. I love him for that (ok, not only for that, but it is on the list of reasons I love him) : )
I will let you all know how weight in turns out, good or bad.
Do you ever just feel like you can’t do it anymore? This is how I feel this morning. I did not want to get out of bed, I do not want to exercise, and I do not want to keep track of points and I REALLY don’t want to have to work right now. I just wish that I could be someone else for one day (with the exception of changing husbands, because I want to keep my Justin all for myself). You know someone who is skinny and doesn’t have to worry about gaining weight; someone who has everything handed to them on a silver platter.
WAKE UP!!!!! I know that this will never happen, but can’t I dream a little bit? I hate it when you are laying your head down at work (usually only do that if I have a headache) and someone will walk by and say “wake up Jessica”, like I don’t know that I am work. There is a reason I lay my head down people! Well that is how I feel today in a metaphorical sense. I want to just dream that I can be that skinny, rich girl and I would prefer it if no one says “that’s not going to happen.”
Well I have lot's to do and so I will put a smile back on and pretend that I am in a good mood. Maybe I can fake it until I make it. I am sorry this entry is such a downer today. I just, well I don’t know. I hope that someone out there is having a good day, because I sure have to fake it here at work.

So today I have had some ups and downs. The up is that I ordered a salad for lunch, it wasn’t too bad. I even resisted the ranch dressing and ordered honey mustard. The downs have been laffy taffy and dove chocolates. Dang Halloween candy. Seriously! (Oh, that reminds me of Grey’s Anatomy) I didn’t walk, another down. But I had water with lunch and have been drinking my water all day, so that is a good thing (another up)! Over all I guess it has been ok. I made it to work today, which is more than I can say about yesterday!
Laffy Taffy joke of they day: What is a witches favorite subject? Spelling!!!! HA HA HA HA HA!!! Oh boy those jokes are great!!

I have also decided to get more serious about working out. I have been taking breaks on the weekend and not doing much, but now I have decided to go ahead and start working out 7 days a week. I think this will help me in the weight loss and possibly (eventually) in the toning area. I have a great husband who helps me with this by encouraging me and asking me if we can DDR (dance dance revolution). I love him for that. Once I master the working out 7 days a week I will master keeping track of my points 7 days a week. I tend to not keep track quite as well on the weekends as I do during the week. Baby steps, that is the best way!
Coming soon...before and after pictures that so many have requested!

Ok, I've got to go. We are having some friends over tomorrow and I need to finish making the cookies. (don't worry I will count the points) : )
Justin and I discovered a new thing with our Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) last night! It has a work out mode, which we actually new about but we hadn’t tried it since we first got the play station because at that time it seemed too hard. Well we have improved since then and tried it last night! I love it. It tells us how long we danced and tells us how many calories we burned. It even tells you how many miles you jogged in comparison to dancing!!! We are for sure doing that from now on.
I woke up this morning to a clean kitchen. Thanks to my wonderful husband. He is so thoughtful.
I weigh in tonight. I think it might be ok. I weigh on Thursday mornings at my house and then officially weigh at Weight Watchers on Thursday nights. So it looks like I might have lost. Keep the prayers coming though, I need it.

I have discovered a new granola bar type thing. It is called Fiber One bars. The one I tried was an oats and chocolate bar! It was so good. It is only 2 points per bar. It tasted like a candy bar almost! The bad thing is that I can't find them at Wal-Mart. My friend said that she bought them at Sam's, so she said she would pick me up some the next time she is there! So if anyone knows of another place (besides Sam's and Walgreen's) to get these bad boys, let me know.
Have a great week, I will write again soon.

I gained, as I expected to, but I was not expecting it to be 3 pounds. I was thinking like 1 to 1 ½ pounds. Well I guess that is what I get for not counting my points over the holiday weekend. My encouraging husband cheered me up and took me to dinner. He is wonderful, in fact, more wonderful than I deserve this morning. I have not had much sleep and I was pretty mean to him (pretty mean to everyone actually). He didn’t seem to think much of it and was easy to forgive me when I asked. I love him so much!!!

Ok, I just had a cool experience in the hall at work! A lady who works in the office next door to ours saw me in the hall and said “wow you look like you have lost a lot of weight.” I of course told her that yes I had lost 41.2 pounds and she said she could tell!!! This was exciting because she didn’t know that I was doing weight watchers, which means she wasn’t just saying it because I had told her. That was just the encouragement that I needed today.

I avoided the vending monster again! I wasn't planning on it, I went down there with money, ready to buy some chocolate donuts, but then once I got there I realized that my dollar was to wrinkly and one of my quarters was a Canadian quarter! So I thought you know I don't need these anyway, so I resisted and came back to my office. I have to say it was kind of hard. But I am glad I resisted!
