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!
