Susan Update

It's been awhile since I updated. I've had 2 successful weigh-ins after one +.2 set-back after Mother's Day weekend. The next week I got back on my horse and lost 2.6 and the next another 2.4. So, now I'm at 138.2. I'm happy! I was striving for the middle of my height range which is 135, but I'm really ok where I am. I wear a combo of 4s & 6s which is thrilling! I think I'm smaller than when I got married 6 years ago! I have one more maintenance week then I'm lifetime and only go to meetings once a month for free. Woohoo! This summer is gonna be hard, but I'm hoping I can maintain by being very diligent during the week and allowing more flexibility on the weekends. Tomorrow is my kids' birthday party, so that's burgers, chips, & cake! My parents are in town visiting. They drove their RV, so we'll be camping with them a lot. So, s'mores, ribs, you name it. However, that's the beauty of Weight Watchers, you can have all that as long as you balance the rest of your day & week accordingly!

Weigh In May 16th

I been in a slump, and eating what I want, so this week I am making a goal! I did weigh in this morning and I lost a pound, to my suprise puts me at 142! I really want to do Boot Camp, but need a buddy and no one of my friend have the time to help me out.

My goal this week:
1.) Count my points and record every bite.
2.) Workout out at least 3 days this week for an hour each time.
3.) Lay out a pair of jeans that do not fit great and try to fit into them.
4.) Be happy with what I have lost to date and not defeated with a set-back.

Seems my husband is making it harder for me to work out now, not sure why. I normally would go ot the gym at 7:30 to 8:30 but lately he will refuse to babysit for me and then it gets too late for me to go and I skip it. I need to make this time a pirority for me only!

Devils Den on Mothers Day Weekend. I did a 2 mile trail carrying Ava most of the way, since it was not stroller friendly, that was a work out!

Weigh in

I weighed in Monday, the 9th, and I have been battling food issue for weeks now, I had a hard last week. My grandad died, leaving me grandparent less, it is so strange to walk around in life knowing a part of you die with them. Every Wednesday for 4 years I would go to my grandad's house and visit with him and let my kids play in his house and show him pictures, tell him stories, and it is the best memory I will could have and will always treasure. He died one day before my milestone anniversary of 5 years to my husband. We laid my grandads to rest last week and it was sad but happy too, I know in my heart he is happy to be in Heaven with my grandmother, his brothers, dad, mom, and sister, and his best friend. So I am happy for him to be reunited with his loved ones and pain free. He dies from the battle of Parkinson Disease. It is so awful to watch someone you love go through that everyday and slowing watch them loose their Independence and witter away. It killed me to watch him in his final day, the day he died, Friday April 28th I got to see him one last time, and I prayed over him for God to keep him safe and for him to be happy again and for my grandmother to take good care of him. I know that is what he wanted all along.
Anyways with all that said I been binge eating here and there, and you know how much food you get at funerals, well I ate alot of that, and me and my hubby did go to Branson for our Anniversary so I ate more and more. I was surprised that I lost a pound putting me at 142.00 still gain too much I am shooting for 136 but it is so hard, I may have to be happy at 140, I am happy right now with my weigh and love that everyone talks about how skinny I am now, makes you feel so good. So cheer me on as I go for another pound loss this week. I will be changing my weigh in day to either Friday or Saturday so my points renew on the weekend when I eat out the most. Thanks.

This is in the oven right now. Smells great. I love ham. Leftovers are great for sandwiches and breakfast too! Only 5 points per serving. Serves 8. Serving about 3.5 oz meat & tbsp glaze.


Hope all you Momma's had a great weekend! We deserve it!

Last week, I lost 1 more pound for a total of 19. I'm now 143. I love to go shopping and try on clothes now. It's so much more fun when stuff fits and looks good! Just wish I had endless funds. I've really only bought 2 new things, a pair of shorts and a top. I need bottoms badly. I might be hosting a designer jean party soon. Let me know if you're interested. You get them 25-50% less than in stores.
Although I'm 'maintaining', I'm secretly wanting to loose 3 more! Running clinic is over so I am going to try so hard to stay as diligent about exercising at least twice a week!
I kinda splurged on Mother's Day weekend. Fried fish on Saturday night and fried chicken on Sunday. Oops! Fingers crossed the scale doesn't scream at me Wednesday!

Weigh in Day

This week was another gain, 2+ gain in two weeks, not that great now. I went to Branson this past weekend and did not count points, so I knew a gain was happening, but now I am so depressed since all the wieght is trying to creep up again, I have to buckle down now. I want to get to 136 and that number is getting futher away every weigh in.

Please keep me and my family in your prayers this week, as we have lost my grandfather and are laying him to rest this Tuesday.

I'm late in posting but at weigh-in last Wednesday, I had lost 3 lbs. I'm at 144 with a 18 total lossage. I was really surprised and happy. Some weeks just don't make sense. I had eaten icecream cake for my husband's birthday Tuesday. Easter Sunday, I sneaked several pieces of candy as well as a slice of strawberry pie. Maybe it just hasn't caught up with me yet. Since I'm supposed to be maintaining, Melissa said to add 2 points a day for a total of 31. I'm really still trying to lose 2 more but slowing it down. I'm terrified of gaining back though so it's hard to give myself more leeway.
