Counting down the pounds

Well so I was planning on going in to weigh in tonight at weight watchers to see just how close I got to my 60 pound goal.  Darn it they were closed!  I guess we will never know if I made the goal by today or not.  I will weigh in on Thursday though and see how much closer I am.  I guess we can say for now that I was 2.8 pounds away from reaching my goal.  Soon however a new goal will be set!

Happy New Year everyone!

OMG (text mode) :)

I lost 4 pounds this week!!!!! I am not kidding, not only was it Christmas, but I have been in Florida for the entire week! Praise God! I couldn't have done it with out his help. He blessed me with a great family of in laws! They have all been so supportive and understanding. I never felt pressured to eat something just because they made it. So this makes my grand total 57.2 pounds lost! WHOO HOO I am so excited!!!!!!

In Florida...

So we arrived in Florida on Saturday evening an hour and a half past the time we were supposed to. We sat on the run way in OKC for about an hour and a half because Chicago was shut down because of fog. Then once in the plan in Chicago we sat on the plan for about 30 minutes because a part in the luggage compartment fell off and they were fixing it. Lets just say that it was nice to be off of the plan!

So on traveling day, I will be honest, I did not count my points. But starting on Sunday I did! Today we went on a walk around the neighborhood that my in-laws live. It was very nice, about 52 degrees outside! Yesterday it got up to 78 degrees! It does not feel like any Christmas I have ever known :) So anyway, things are going good thus far. Justin's family is very supportive of my needs for WW, that makes it very easy to track my points and only eat at places where I know the points values. I think that we will be walking around some more today, so that will be some more activity points for me!

Well I hope that you all have a very blessed Christmas! I will write again soon!

I am closer

Well I am pretty sure I won't reach my 60 pound goal by December 31st. But that is ok. Because the important thing is that I will reach it soon. I lost 6/10 of a pound yesterday bringing my total loss to 53.2 pounds!

Like I said yesterday, please pray for me while I am in Florida, that I won't give in to things I don't need and the things I do eat that I won't over eat.

Sorry I haven't blogged this week! I just realized that it is 10 till 5 and I hadn't even typed anything today about how I feel weigh in will go. I think it might be alright. I weighed this morning and I was down a pound and that usually reflects how I do at my evening weigh in. But keep praying for me as we head out to Florida on Saturday. Justin's family is great and I know they will understand if I can't eat something because of points. His mom already called to see if there was anything specific that she needed to get!

I'm ok with the results...

So I weighed in tonight.  I lost 2/10 of a pound.  I for sure wanted to lose more, but I am glad I didn't gain.  Really I wasn't surprised at the results because I didn't do all to well from Friday - Monday.  Today I haven't felt good, so I haven't worried too much about not working out, although I did get my work out in the morning done.  Ok, that is all for today, I am going to go and rest so I can get better.

God made ice machine...

Man we had a lot of ice come our way this weekend. Evidently it has been the worst as far as power outages go. Thankfully Justin and I only lost electricity for a few hours on Sunday and a few on Monday. We are doing fine though. My mom and sister have not been so lucky. They both haven’t had power since, I guess, Sunday night. They (OGE) say it will be 7-10 days before some have power on!

I have to say that despite the awful road conditions and the no electricity thing, this is a beautiful storm. The way the ice forms on the grass and the trees, is just an amazing picture. Of course when you try to take a picture to reflect the beauty it never turns out the way you want it to.

I used the cold as an excuse to eat more. Bad choices were made, but today is a new day, not to mention I am at work. I need to get back to tracking my points and to working out. I sat around this morning, hoping to get a call saying not to worry about coming in to work. I knew that I wouldn’t get the call, but part of me really wanted to go back to sleep, so I just sat there instead of working out. I will walk today at lunch though and work out some tonight.

Christmas time...

Ok, so I love Christmas time. It is the time we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus. What I do not like about Christmas time is that companies you do business with seem to think it is a time to bring you high fat, high calorie, high point goodies. This is not a good idea! If you are a business person reading this you should really try and be different. Give something that is not eatable or if you must give food, bring a veggie tray or something! Most people don’t want to give in to the fattening goodies, but they do because they are right in front of them. All of this to say that yes, I fall in to the category of someone who gave in. Darn those cookie boxes! Seriously, I ate the best cookie bar ever and while it tasted fabulous, I am so mad at myself for doing that. Especially because Justin and I have a Christmas party to go to tonight and now I will have to make sure I absolutely do not eat anything other than 0 point items! What are the odds that there will be veggies there?

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!

I would first like to thank my God and Savior for giving me strength to wake up and work out in the mornings, I would like to thank my wonderful husband for always encouraging me.  I would like to thank my WW leader, who helped me out tremendously this week.

For what you all ask, well I have now lost 52.4 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!  (I know!!)  I lost 4.6 pounds this week.  I am going to keep doing what I am doing and I just know that 60 is just around the corner.

Weigh in day...

So I am always a little anxious on weigh in day. But today I am feeling ok. I feel really good about the past week. My WW leader has really helped me and I have actually done what she suggested. To be honest at first I found myself making excuses, but then realized she was right in saying I needed to eat more fruits/veggies and dairy products. I think the thing that got me to do it was she said not to feel overwhelmed, to add them in 1-2 increments. This has helped me to not feel overwhelmed about it. I now have a half gallon of milk at my office so one of my morning snacks is a cup of Chocolate milk (I just can't do the plain milk, with out something sweet). :) I have also started buying the dole fruit cups. They are 1/2 cup servings of fruit. I am eating those more often too. And I have started back to eating my broccoli and cheese. I had kind of stopped eating them for a while. So anyway, I will post as soon as I can after weigh in tonight. Justin and I are planning on eating dinner at Applebee's (they have a WW menu). Hopefully we will be celebrating!!!

again, already?

I just have to mention that currently everyone in the office is now talking about what to do for lunch and I honestly don't want to do anything but eat my Healthy Choice! That has never happened!!!!!!


So the last two days I woke up early and did a little bit of DDR. This morning was extra challenging because I had to wake up at 5:30 (yes that would be in the a.m.). Justin had to take me to work because my care is at the mechanic. Hopefully that will get fixed and if not my friend Misti said I could get a ride from her, since she lives and works in the same area as me. Justin and I did DDR a lot yesterday and Saturday. I think that I will switch it up between DDR and a video so that I don't get burnt out. Well that is all for now. I may write back later today if I haven't fallen asleep on my desk :)
