No weight loss

I have gained some weight in the pass weeks due to laziness. I have a huge problem with saying no to fast food or even opting for a light meal at fast food places! I was looking into Mesifast meals and going to try that with WW. I am sure I need more discipline is all. I been so stressed lately and eating. Bad food is my cure!

Really liked these a lot! I will definitely repeat this recipe! I used green pepper instead of red cause they're 1/4 the price. I used Feta instead of Blue Cheese cause that's what I had on hand. I made 4 regular sized patties instead of 8 minis so I put them on wheat rounds instead of the mini-buns, so that probably took 2 points off for a total of 6.

5 points for 1/4 which is ALOT, probably should serve 6 instead of 4. I served it over a cup of whole wheat pasta so that added 4 pts for a total of 9! Very good. The canned tomatoes make it a tad too sweet though. Not sure how to alter that. Anyhow, Seth and I like it. I found it on the back of a Treasure Cave Feta Cheese label.

I'm still here

It's Susan. Sorry, I've been so bad about blogging. It's been a busy summer. I'm doing well. I did gain in Chicago as expected, but I got it back off the following week. I pretty much stick to my 29 points Mon-Thurs, then give myself more freedom Fri-Sun. This is my maintenance theory. It's working. I've really started running; dare I say training for a marathon? I've done a few long runs, 7 miles being the longest. I need to find a running buddy though if I'm going to take on 26.2 miles! That's too much time (race & training) to do solo. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Lol. I'm almost positive I'm going to do the half in October in Conway, Soaring Wings. I definitely accredit the weight loss to ww, but running has done much for the shape of my legs. I'm actually proud to wear a mini-skirt at 30! According to 'What Not to Wear', I only have 5 more years!
Anyhow, I went to my yearly doc appt Tuesday and had lost 30 lbs since I was there 1 year ago, 6 weeks after having the twins. I was 137lbs. and 5'5 3/4'' tall. 25 of that was been lost since joining ww in March.
Mid-June, we had a family vacation to the beach. I felt so comfortable in my swimsuit which has never been the case. It is unfortunate that I'm smaller than I've practically ever been and more fit, but can't wear a 2 piece cause of the twin stretch marks. My belly is bad off! Seth looks amazing too. He still watches what he eats and started working out at Crossfit twice a week! It's pretty hardcore from what I hear!
Stay tuned for some more recipes coming your way!

I have not really lost anything or gained anything which is great, however I feel like a BIG girl a lot, seems I loose the weight but my mid-section stays the same which makes clothes no fun to try on. Swim suit shopping I have not attempted because I dread it so much. I dream of one day going into a 2 piece again, but not this year, this year will be a tankini or a one piece.

I decied to switch my weigh in day till Friday, because I tend to eat out a lot on the weekends and those extra points really help me there, plus I will have all week to work it all off, instead of a day.

I am currently at 143 and really will be happy at 140 and standing. If I go below that great, above that BOO.

Weigh in for Leah

I have gained about 2 pounds this week, not that I am suprised I ate a lot of fries and burgers this weekend. I always have a hard time on the weekend. I really want to loose the last of my weight but it is sticking to me. I know with summer it will be hard since we do not cook a lot at home now. I just need to learn to go with the salad or lower menu item for now on. I am also not getting to work out a lot as I wanted to, seems we are always having to get things done when I get off work and never enough time to go walking or to the gym. Normally I would take a child with me, but when my hubby works nights nad I have 2 kids that is not possable I am not that strong at all. I really want to do boot camp soon, I need a buddy though.

Susan Update

Whoops! Last Wed., I'd gained 1.8lb. I knew it was coming, so this week, my goal is to get it back off. I ran last night at 6pm, and it was HOT. The index was 101. It's gonna be a long, tough summer, but bring it on! The more sweat, the more calories burned, right?! Anyhow, despite my gain, I still made lifetime member. Woot! Woot! Since I weighed on June 1, I don't have to go back til sometime in July. I'm glad for that, but it's gonna be weird not checking in weekly. I'll probably go near the end of July since June includes a girls trip to Chicago where I plan to indulge in their famous deep dish pizza as well as a Chicago-style hotdog or 2. Then, I get back for a few days and head to Florida for a week where the daiquiris and beers will be flowing. Eating-wise it shouldn't be too bad there though since I plan to eat lots of seafood which is low in points and we'll cook most meals in our condo. I also plan to run at least twice that week, if not daily. We're taking a sitter, so it'll be easier than usual to go for a run if I so desire. So, after all that is said and done, I'll have to tighten up and get back to the grind for a weigh-in.
