Weight: 152.2

Okay, I'm trying a new color today, hope it works. If not, I'll just look stupid, LOL. Notice I only lost 4 tenths this week but I'll take it, it's better than nothing. And I'm already looking forward to next week when I should drop considerably. I'm off to a better start to the week too (my week goes from Thursday to Thursday). Usually I cheat pretty bad on Thursdays after weigh-in, figuring I have all week to make up for it. Haven't I figured out yet that doesn't work? Yep, now I have! So I'm staying in my point allowance today & I did 7 miles on my bike while watching Oprah. Usually Thursdays are my exercise day off but I'm going to try to exercise everyday this week if possible, at least some. I've just got to lose that 2.2 pounds before I move away from here (for those of you who haven't read my entries, I'm moving to Arizona from Ohio in less than 3 weeks so I only have 2 more Weight Watchers meetings to go) I need to reach my goal before then. So no more cheating, I can fit some good things I like into my allowed points, right? Just not McDonald's, LOL. So I'm feeling really great today & I hope you all are too. Wow, it takes me all day to read all the entries now, hehe. This is getting to be a popular place. I wish Panda & Adam & Tabitha would all check back in though. If you're out there, guys, let us know how you're doing. Well, gotta go, so much to watch & tape on TV tonight. You know what an addict I am. Talk to you tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

maria7 on 02/01/2001:
We are all with you and you know you can do it! Wait til you are at your goal before fast foods. 7 miles on the bicycle...go,girl,go!

SoccerMom on 02/01/2001:
You sound like such an UP person! That's going to be quite a move for you. I have a friend who moved to Arizona last year. She says that the hardest thing to get used to are the coyotes....and of course, the heat. Do you have family out there?

Have a wonderful evening!

Brrrrr! I'm so cold tonight. Sometimes I think it's all the water I drink all day. It's nice for in the summer but I just can't get warm until I'm under my electric blanket at night. Pretty soon now... I've had another great day today. Walked 3 miles on the treadmill this morning & I felt bad when I first got up, sinus headache again, which leads to nausea, but I dragged myself down to the treadmill & told myself I'd do just whatever amount I could. But after I was going for awhile, I felt pretty good so I did the whole 3 miles, yippee! I sure hope I get to change that number up in the left corner tomorrow. Weigh-in at Weight Watchers, for those of you who don't know. I did really well again with my food intake, just 19 points today & I'm all finished with eating today. I had 80 ounces of water so I made that quota too. I'd have to rate my week at about a 7, maybe 8, on a scale of 1 to 10. And I plan on doing even better next week, I'm so determined to reach my goal. So wish me luck & I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes. Thanks for listening.

Bunny on 01/31/2001:
Good for you! That is so wonderful that you had such a good week. Good luck tomorrow!!! Have a healthy happy day!

maria7 on 01/31/2001:
You know, I tell myself the same thing...just get on the treadmill and take it from there...I usually get to going real well after disciplining myself to get started and walk/jog/run a long time. It is just the getting started each time. You are doing great with your points and water and exercise. Maria

Shannon on 01/31/2001:
Hi! Thank you for the warm welcome. I am so impressed with how friendly everyone here is. I have two children, two boys ages 4 and 10 months. You are not far from your goal, and I know that must feel great! Good luck to you!

Kyrin on 02/01/2001:
Yea, you! I'm so glad that you had a good week. I haven't been able to wade through all of the diary entries this week (darn cold), so I took some time and read yours tonight. ...You've been doing a stupendous job with your exercising!

I've got my fingers crossed for you tomorrow when you hop on the scale. If you don't get the result you're hoping for, remember that muscle weighs more than fat. You've likely been increasing your muscle mass with the exercising--which means you've probably boosted your metabolism a bit. The tape measure would also be a terrific tool for charting your losses.

((hugs and congratulations on your terrific week))

km on 02/01/2001:
Wow you sound so motivated that's great I am sure you will meet your goal and I know exactly what you mean about gaining weight when you moved away, I mean i too used food for comfort even when i was younger but what i don't really understand is how we still hold on to those habits I mean when i think back my parents would fight alot and i would hide with chips, cookies you know junk food in my room while they argued but how does that play out now, is it just a habit that is continuing or something more, you know or is it all excuses well stop me i'm rambling.........Thanks KIM

DVDMon on 02/01/2001:
Hey. Yes, it is tough sometimes to know what to believe. I think the best thing to do is to keep an open mind and if something works for you do it, but if it doesn't, ditch it. Also, try different things and the more things you try, the more chance you have of finding something that is successful for you. I have become convinced that the low-carb way of eating is healthiest for me simply from the way I feel. The whole issue of weight loss has diminished in importance. It is happening slowly, but I am just enjoying feeling good and not like I'm on some deprivation plan...

Boy, am I tired!! I'm ready to go to bed already & it's only 7:38. 2 more hours to get through, I guess. I'm going to bed early since there is nothing on the tube after Frazier that I like & I always tape NYPD Blue & Judging Amy at 10:00 cause that's usually too late for me to stay up. Here's why I'm so tired--I got woken up at 7:30 this morning when the guys came to take our living room furniture that we had sold. So since I was up, I proceded to get ready to go bowling. Bowled the usual 3 games in 1 hour, then on to lunch at the Chinese buffet. MMMMM, I really enjoyed it & savored every morsel. Only ate one plateful though & didn't go back for seconds & thirds as everyone else did. I did have an eggroll though, I love those. So to compensate, this afternoon I rode my bike for 6 miles & walked 2 miles on the treadmill, for a total of 380 calories burned. I ate a light dinner but I still feel hungry, though I really shouldn't, I did eat enough, I think. Must just be my mind trying to fool me, huh? So I'll just watch some TV (The Mole, I love that & Frazier) then head off to beddy bye. Hope I didn't do too much damage with the Chinese food, we'll find out Thursday. When I hear about how so many of you have been sick with this thing that's going around, I'm just grateful that I haven't come down with it yet but I guess my time will come but I can hope not. I hope you are all feeling better now. Going to go take my daily Metamucil now, maybe that will fill me up finally. Thanks for listening.

morganlee on 01/30/2001:
Hi!:) Thanks for your supporting comment earlier and reading your entries is very motivating to me. I am proud of you. you did so well at the buffet. My hubby loves them but I am always scared I will be tempted to over eat. So I do try to stay away. Keep up the good work . take care

Bunny on 01/30/2001:
What great wiil power!! I have to avoid the buffets because I know i would go back for thirds and maybe fourths.lol Keep up the great work! Have a wonderful healthy day:)

Hi, everybody! I'm having another great day. I did have a sinus headache but I took Tylenol 3 & feel better. I walked 3 miles on the treadmill this morning (I was only going to do 2 cause of the headache) so yippee for me! I didn't walk as fast as yesterday & didn't incline as much so I didn't burn as much calories, but it still said 335. I didn't ride the bike this afternoon, someone came to appraise our house for the sale, so I thought I'd just take the day off from that. I've kept really busy all day, cleaning & making phone calls. There's so much to do yet before our move. Yesterday I was packing boxes and all the bending over didn't hurt my back but the backs of my thighs are really sore. Good for them, I guess. Tomorrow is bowling & I think they want to go to the Chinese buffet afterward, so I'll have to be extra careful. I just love Chinese food. But I just looked back at how I did 3 weeks ago after we went to Red Lobster & I'd lost 2 pounds that week, so I'm not really worried. In the afternoon, I'll just do a lot of walking on the treadmill, that should help. And drink lots of water to wash it away, LOL. Then for dinner I'll just eat really light. So I should be okay. I'm sure going to miss the ladies at bowling when I move away, they are the best group I've ever bowled with, I'll never find a group quite as nice. Thank goodness, I get to take you all with me, I'm so glad of that. Oh, I've done really well on the food side so far today too. So another A+ day. I know I will do well with dinner & the rest of the evening. We can do this, if I can do it, anyone can! Thanks for listening.

muggg on 01/29/2001:
I was just wondering about your friends that you bowl with. But you will find some other really nice ladies... and that is so true about taking us with you. It was so neat setting up my computer... I was so anxious to see you all in my new place (LOL)... but true.

You are doing so fine with your food and exercise! I am so proud of you!

pastagal on 01/29/2001:
I really love your attitude,,,and YES you will do fine,,just take each day slow and make good choices,,and don't over do,i know getting ready to move is stressful,,,don't forget to breath:}}

SoccerMom on 01/30/2001:
Hope your headache is better today! Sounds like you're doing great with the food and exercise...and yes, packing boxes and cleaning is GREAT exercise.

Good luck in selling the house quickly. Have a healthy day.

bunny on 01/30/2001:
Isn't moving fun! We moved a few months ago and I swear i'm never doing it again. lol. Your doing really great. Keep up the positive attitude. We are going to do it! Have a wonderful day!

Another A+ day. Yippee!! I did 3 miles on the treadmill again, a little faster than yesterday, 53 minutes. Before dinner, I did 6 miles on the bike again too. Oh, I almost forgot, I did 100 ab crunches this morning, I forgot them yesterday. I looked at my side view this morning & I think I need to lose another 20 pounds just in my stomach, darnit! I feel like I'll never get rid of it but I'll keep trying. My legs are nice & skinny though. When I finished riding the bike, I told my husband, "I just did 6 miles on the bike". He goes, "Uh huh". I would like more than that, like "Wow, that's sooo much". Is that too much to ask? Oh, well.... I know when I come on here, I'll get the feedback I so badly need, right? Thanks, guys! Oh, I've had 22 points so far & almost done for the day. I'll probably have some pretzels soon for one more point. Boy, I really love counting those points & I know I can stay on Weight Watchers for the rest of my life, that's my plan. I used to hate writing down everything I ate, so I didn't do it back then. But now there's no problem, I just do it. Oh, sure, there are some days I don't but not too many anymore. Well, hope you all had a great weekend & thanks for listening.

pastagal on 01/28/2001:
I love how you Grade yourself,,thats neat,,,,sounds like things are going really good for you lately,,,gosh you will be at your goal in no time:}}

You asked me about my goal,,well when i started weight watchers a yr ago,,i started out wanting to lose 75lbs,,they said 50lbs,,,and its 53 as of now so i have a ways yet to go to get to the 75lbs I want to lose,,,my family thinks i have lost enough,but i am not content yet with how i look,,another 15-20 lbs and i will be happy,,what did you start out at and whats your goal?? and i agree,,,weight watchers is something i can do for life,,its really very easy to follow once you get the hang of it,,:}}

Woo hoo!! way to go girlfriend! Your entry made me smile! You're right.. we can get our encouragement here when our immediate families don't come through! I am so amazed at all the exercise!!!! Wow!!

The office was the last place for me to organize.. it has too many boxes in it and I hadn't come up with a way to organize it... but I'm getting closer! I have no basement or attic either!

Better go assemble another shelf!

Well, first of all, thank you all for your great support. I am on my way to getting to that goal. I did cheat some on Thursday, but at least it didn't continue on into Friday & Saturday, as it usually does. So I should have a good week & good loss this week. I KNOW I can do it. Yesterday was a good "on program" day, although I didn't exercise at all. I woke up with bad cramps at 6 AM, my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) acting up. So I felt bad all day. Could it have been all the peanuts in the trail mix I ate the day before, ya think? Duh! When I ate them, I didn't even make the connection that that could happen, I hardly ever eat peanuts. Now I know. I did have plenty of water yesterday though, so I guess that washed them all out, LOL. Today has been better, walked 3 miles on the treadmill this morning & did 6 miles on my bike before dinner, burning more than 500 calories, according to my equipment. And I've had 72 ounces of water & 21 points. I still need to drink my Metamucil (16 ounces of water more) & I may have some pretzels for another 1 or 2 points. Altogether, an A+ day. (BTW, no points in the Metamucil, it's sugar-free). I've caught up on all your entries, so you all have a good tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

SoccerMom on 01/28/2001:
You're doing soooo well! Sorry you weren't feeling good.

Have a healthy day...and ~smile~

pastagal on 01/28/2001:
Your doing great ,,keep it up,,,to answer your question,i started weight watchers a yr ago this month and there goal they set for me was 50lbs,i have met that and now i am moving toward my goal,,which is another 15 -20 lbs,,which they say is ok,,,i weighed 198 when i started weight watchers,,its been slow,,,but i have been consistent and have'ntgained so guess that is what i should be really happy about,,,,you keep it up,,your almost to your goal:}}}

Weight: 153.4

Well, that just sucks--it wouldn't let me change my weight, it's now 152.6. I'm down 8 tenths of a pound this week. Only 2.6 to go. Of course, I'm going to keep losing after that, if I can. I'd like to be down to at least 145 but my WW goal is 150. That all said, I didn't have a good day today, so I'll just call it my "day off". I really can't afford to do that again though. I want to reach that goal before I move to Arizona in less than 4 weeks. Wow, the meeting was really crowded again, I got there early to beat the rush to weigh-in. But I like it crowded, there is more going on that way. We had a substitute leader, she was really good. She told how she had been on all the diets in the past & always gained back the weight she had lost, even on weight watchers. But 4 years ago she lost all the weight & has kept it off. So, I've been reading all your entries but I usually don't have much time lately to comment, there are so many of us now, it takes me too long to read them all. And I just dread when I will be at my Mom's for 8 days before we can move into the new house, where I will be without my puter & can't check in here everyday. And who knows how long after we move in that it will take before I have it all hooked up again. I will sure miss you all then. But don't worry, as long as nothing drastic happens to my puter in the move, I shall return eventually. But I still have almost 4 weeks before then. Well, guess that's all for today, no exercise, bad food. Better day ahead tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

maria7 on 01/25/2001:
Soon to be Thin, you are doing great...I believe you will be at your goalweight within 4 weeks, if not lower! We will miss you when you are offline and will look forward to your being back online! Maria

SoccerMom on 01/26/2001:
Our moms have a habit of fixing all of our favorites when we visit. I'll be thinking of you at your mom's! Just keep that goal weight in view, and make healthy food choices. You'll do fine.

Hope all goes well for you on your move. We'll miss you...but you've still got four weeks. Let's see you hit your target before you go! ~smile~

Kyrin on 01/27/2001:
Hey, congratulations on the weight loss. ...EVERY little bit counts! <grin>

You've still got four weeks until you move to Arizona, so make the most of those meetings. You know that your mom will want to feed you while you are visiting her (don't they all?), so plan for it.

You wanted to make goal before you went so you could celebrate with your WW buddies. So, do it.

Day 4 here of being really good. Yeah, me! But the only exercise today was bowling this morning. We bowl 3 games in just a little over an hour cause there are only 2 ladies on each team, so I am almost constantly bowling. Also, all the times I sit down & stand up again must count for something, LOL. I wonder if I just stayed standing up the whole time I would burn more calories? I've been really busy all day too so I didn't get to read all your entries for today, sorry. Oh, I forgot, at lunch today, we went to TGI Friday's. I almost ordered the soup, which would be more fattening, but I changed my mind & had the salad with a breadstick. Much better choice. They all had the Tuesday special, fried chicken fingers with fries, uh oh! But I enjoyed the conversation & my salad just fine, thank you. Well, gotta go, time for "The Mole", I'm hooked. Thanks for listening.

muggg on 01/24/2001:

Well, it's been a few days. I've been doing okay, not perfect, but okay. Better than last week, I think. I have had 3 really good days in a row, exercise, water & within my point range. Friday I exercised but the diet wasn't real good. I plan on staying on program for the next 2 days also, so my week (from Thurs. to Thurs) will be okay. But, I ramble---I've been checking all your entries but I haven't had time til now to enter my own. Glad you all are doing so well. And welcome to all the new people. Thanks for listening.

sunny3 on 01/22/2001:
Hey no one expects perfect days! You have done so well and you will keep on going! You are motivated and positive and its ok to treat yourself once in a while! Keep drinking the water and doing the exercise and things are going to be fine!

You aren't rambling either. If you need to talk about how you feel you do it. I am here to listen as are the rest of us here without judgement. You remember that.

Hey, everybody, how's it going? Good, I hope. I've just read all the entries so far for today & you all sound good. Here's how my day went--Weight Watchers meeting this morning & as you can all see, I had a small, surprising drop in my weight. I don't really feel that I deserve it, there must have been something wrong with the scale, though it was the same one I weighed in on last week. My scale at home said I only dropped half a pound, so I was surprised at the meeting. Gee, if I can do that on a bad week, just think of how I can do on a good one, LOL. So, I'm encouraged to do better this week, although, I must confess, I didn't do so well today. But it's out of my system now & I will do really well for the rest of the week, I promise, you are all my witnesses. Going to get up tomorrow & do lots of walking in the morning, I always feel better when I do. This morning I started out feeling pretty bad, sinus headache & soooo tired, even though I had a good night's sleep. But by this afternoon, I felt a lot better. We got some questions about our move ironed out today & signed papers to do with the selling of our house, so things feel better to me, I'm such a worrier & hate things "up in the air". I can't tell you how much better I will feel when this is all over & we're finally settled in the new house. Hot tub, here I come! Still, so much packing & sorting to do!!! Maybe that's why I did have a loss this week, ya think? All the stress & worry. Gosh, I didn't drink hardly any water today either & now I am craving it (believe me, it does happen, after you get used to it). So I'm gonna work on some of that the rest of tonight. Before I go, I was thinking today at the WW meeting, I guess I'm not the only one who has been going to the meetings for so long & still not made my goal, there are several other people I noticed today that have been there at least as long as I have been going & haven't reached their goal, so now I feel better, that I'm not the only one. Misery loves company, they say, LOL. So, now, only 3.4 pounds left to my goal & 4 more meetings to go before I move to Arizona. I should be able to make it or shame on me! I would just like to reach goal with all the people I know at the meeting instead of in front of a lot of strangers at a new meeting. If I keep that in mind, I should be able to do it. Thanks for all your support & thanks for listening.
