Day Twenty-Five…

Anyone who has been serious about weight loss, and who have committed themselves to weighing, measuring, and logging their foods will relate to what I’m about to share. Sometimes it seems like everyone wants the #WW foods I’m relying on to make this all work.

It all started when I came home from work and was emptying out my lunchbox.  When what do I see in the garbage? My WW Mac & Cheese Potato Sicks! At 2 SmartPoints per bag, they are a nice little treat that makes lunch a little special. My daughter fessed up to eating those, and I couldn’t help but be annoyed. We have other snack bags of chips and that was my last one.

Later, while dinner was cooking, I found myself really wanting a little something. So, I measured out a quarter cup of Wonderful Pistachios and tracked them as 2 SmartPoints. When who should come into the kitchen? My husband who summarily takes a handful from my tiny bowl and now my 1/4 cup went down to a 1/8 of a cup!

Then later, after dinner, I sliced up some apple and baked it in the oven with some pumpkin spice seasoning. When I pulled out of the oven, there was my son saying, “What’s that mom?” So I scooped some up and sprayed some fat-free Redi Whip and made us each a bowl. It was way better than I thought it would be.

Anyway, still on plan and doing my best over here. How’s it going by you? I hope you are making it work. Just remember, you’re amazing. More tomorrow.



Day Three Hundred Fifty-Nine…

I had a great first “official” day back. I got lots of compliments from co-workers and that was fun for me. This post will be pretty short because I am feeling exhausted.  I didn’t eat the pizza lunch. Instead, I ate the food I brought from home and I didn’t feel like I missed out – that’s a big victory.  I also went to spin class at 5:15 am and I”m proud of that too. What did you do for yourself today? If you can’t answer that question, it’s never too late. Do something right now that would bring you happiness. You deserve it.


DAY 28: Make more time for friends and family. Today, call a friend or a family member just to chat. Try to do this everyday this week.

It was my first “official” day back to work, so finding time for friends (other than my work friends) is a difficult proposition. I did take the time to be with family though. My daughter and I had some laughs watching a B movie, and my son ran an errand with me to pick up my other daughter from work. I will actively try to do this more.
