next step...

So I have done an entire week of tracking my morning points! Yes I had a day or two where I messed up, but I got back on the next day. Now this week my goal is to track my morning and afternoon points. This is going to be harder, but I know I can do it for "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

Today I already resisted a cookie (this was not easy, seriously see how cute and yummy they look here). But I figured it will still be here for me tonight.

Last night at my weigh in I gained 4/10 of a pound. Which considering the week before I gained 2.8 pounds, I was pleased with the 4/10. I think I will be able to see a difference once I am tracking everything. Although really I saw a difference with just tracking the mornings, just not the difference that I want to see right now.

Baby steps

Back to square one. I am having the hardest time getting into weight watchers. I haven't counted my points in forever. So I am going to take baby steps, you know like in What About Bob. So for the next few days I will count everything prior to lunch. This doesn't give me the excuse to eat bad after lunch and beyond, but it will help me get into the counting of the points. So this morning I counted my breakfast. I already forgot about my deal and have made some brownies, I licked the spoon I mixed it with. Doh! Well I am trying. I CAN do this!

Works For Me...Generic Applesauce!

So for years I have thought that I didn't like applesauce. I am not sure why, I don't really remember trying it and not liking it. Who knows though, I don't have a good memory! Well my friend Ashleigh, who I go to the library and walking with, had some natural applesauce with her lunch the other day. She said it was good so I decided to try it. I need to find ways to get my fruit in! I love it! It is so yummy. And it is natural so it doesn't have the added sugar. (I think that is what it means) :) Anyway, we bought the generic Walmart brand and it is YUMMY! I would highly recommend it. Thanks for the suggestion Ashleigh!

Well it is 11:02 and so far I have tracked all of my points today! I don't know what changed but this morning I am a new person. I even resisted some M&M's that I had left in the kitchen last night! I just put a clip on it and put them in the fridge. There may come a time when I want to eat some but I will count them! I was just so proud of how I have done today that I had to write about it.

I am back to this blog!

Ok, so I am back to this blog! I tried to go another route, but it just didn't work.

I have been in such a slump lately. I just don't care about doing weight watchers. Tonight I am supposed to go weigh in and I really don't want to go. I am 99.9% sure that I gained. I just want to not worry about weight loss. I just want to bake all day long! That is something I have such fun doing but it is hard to loose weight and bake yummy goodness all week long! Arg! I am tired and have only wanted to sleep a lot lately. (no I am not pregnant, and those that know me know that I tested) :) I wish that I could just wake up and be skinny! I know that is so not going to happen. Well I don't know what else to write. I guess just PLEASE pray for me. I know the only way I am going to get out of this stupid slump is with God's help.
