So--up again, but I think I have a handle on it. Who knows? Some days I think I can do this, then other days, I completely blow it. I indulged some today, not a lot, but I had points saved from the last 3 days, so maybe I will get by without a gain. No Krispy Kreme donuts, like I wanted, I had WW chocolate cake instead & fat-free pudding. I had WOW Tostitos but 2 servings, not one. It's still better than McD's or Burger King, but I could have done better. Also, no exercise, unless you count some shopping.
I had taken some of my bigger clothes to the consignment shop a few weeks ago, & when I went in today, they had $44.00 for me. Whoopee!! Still, the things were worth more than that, but something is better than nothing I guess. Sometimes, I even buy there. You can find some pretty good things & save some money.
Guess I will try to get to the gym tomorrow. I'm going to try to turn over a new leaf ;-) ONWARD & DOWNWARD!!! I'm tired of not losing lately when it seems everyone at the meeting is. By the way, the meetings I go to are so great, I always come out feeling renewed & ready to try harder.
So I hope everyone had a good day. Guess I'll go read some entries & see how you are all doing. Thanks for listening.

Well, tomorrow, the dreaded weigh-in. Why is it I am always hungrier on Wednesdays?! It sure seems that way & I really have to fight it. But I've had a good day today again. I just didn't get up & go to the gym tho & didn't even walk on my treadmill! What is with me lately? Of course, my back still hurts, so I am babying myself just a little. Maybe experimenting some to see if I can get away with it too. I probably won't & will have a gain tomorrow cause I was way bad over the weekend. 3 days of being good couldn't possibly make up for it. But I'm okay with that & will do better in the future, I hope.
Wow, it's really hot here today, but will cool off for the next few days, I guess. At least no storms on the horizon. Hope you've all had a good day. Talk to you tomorrow about the weigh-in results. Thanks for listening.

Didn't get to the gym this morning but I did 2 miles on my treadmill. At least that's better than I had been doing lately. Been doing well on the food also today. I have bowling tonight so that will be a little more exercise ;-)
Looks like we will get more storms today so I thought I'd get this done earlier than usual, might have to shut the puter down again. I still have to get caught up on everyone's diaries since I couldn't yesterday.
Oh, I almost went to McD's this morning instead of walking. My hubs left to eat breakfast with his friend this morning so I knew I could get away with it, but I fought it off & walked instead.
Well, hope everyone's doing well. Thanks for listening.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I'm back on track now, had a good day, dietwise. No exercise yet. I plan on going to the gym tomorrow. It looks like rain here any minute. So I'd better cut this short as we could get lightening too. Thanks for the comments & thanks for listening.

Well, gang, I'm embarrassed to say, I have really slipped this weekend. No exercise, eating badly. It could be worse, I guess, I really can't eat as much as I used to, thank goodness. And I will start over tomorrow & put it all behind me. Just hope I haven't gained too much! Haven't even tried those new shoes yet, Jenny. I'll let you know how they are when I start wearing them. I hope I haven't depressed anyone----we CAN do this!!!

Just a short one today, don't have much time. I didn't walk this morning, thought I'd give my back a chance to recuperate. It seems better today so I'll walk tomorrow. Got some new shoes I want to try also, the new Reebok Roadwalker. They look pretty nice & felt comfortable, a little different than my old Reebok DMX walking shoes. The diet went well today. I was out shopping with the hubs for quite awhile, picked up a lot of good stuff. (Sounds like I shop all the time, doesn't it?) So I did get some exercise in, walking all over the stores. We went to a place I'd never been called Jungle Jim's. They have all kinds of ethnic foods, produce that you don't see in the regular groceries & just all kinds of foods. I picked up some mangoes, I just love them, & they are a change from the usual apples & bananas.
Well, this wasn't so short after all LOL. Catch you all tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

Hi, how are you all doing? Well, my WW meeting was this morning & here's my new weight. AAAARRRGGGHH!!!! Here I thought I did so good this week, but what happened? Oh, well, it's not going to bother me, I will just do even better this week. I'm off to a good start. I did some shopping after the meeting & then the grocery store, & I was soooo hungry by then (not advised) but I didn't buy a single junk food item ;-) That's really good for me. When I am hungry, I usually buy everything that's not good. (Well, I mean, not good for me diet-wise). So I was really proud of myself, since I was kinda down about gaining this week. No exercise today but I will for sure tomorrow, unless my back is hurting too much. It is better than yesterday but as the day wore on, it got worse, so I will just take it easy if I go to the gym tomorrow. By the way, my scale said I was down 1/2 pound from last week---go figure!
Hope everyone had a good day. I gotta go, we probably have to shut down soon, it looks like a good storm coming. Thanks for listening.

Well, tomorrow is weigh-in & I've been doing good. Hope there is good results. I walked on my treadmill yesterday for 3 miles & then today I went to the gym (reluctantly). My heart just wasn't in it today so I just did 1 1/2 hours, only 1/2 an hour of weights. And I pulled a muscle in my back. Ouch! I've kept heat on it almost all day which feels good as long as I don't move, but I don't know, am I suppose to use ice or what? Hope it goes away soon although it would be a good excuse to not workout LOL. Bad me! I shouldn't say that, it might make things worse for me, I really need the exercise.
I didn't write yesterday cause I was so tired after bowling last night. Yep, still got that old tiredness & sinus headaches. I even napped a little today with the heat pad on my back. Well, gotta go, guess I'll catch up on all your diaries that I missed yesterday, then the tv will be calling me. I'm hooked on the Millionaire show. Thanks for listening.

I don't know what's happening to me lately. I slept in again this morning, I was so tired & didn't feel well when I got up at 6 so I went back to bed for another couple of hours. So no exercise again today. I found all kinds of other excuses too, like my hair was a mess, it was cold out again, I had a doctors' appointment at noon. You know how it goes. I have just been so sleepy all day with a sinus headache. The doctor just had to check out my blood pressure cause he put me on a new drug last month & also take another blood sample, but I had to wait an hour & a half to see him!!! By then I was so sleepy I didn't even ask what my blood pressure was. So when I got home after 2, I just ate lunch & layed down for a nap. I really plan on getting up tomorrow & walking on my treadmill. I WILL DO IT!!
Food-wise, I have done good again today. I found that I usually get hungry again a couple of hours after breakfast, so what I do now is eat my oatmeal then a couple of hours later I have toast & diet hot chocolate. Then I'm not starving before lunch. I also have popcorn (low-fat) or something & fruit while I watch Oprah at 4. This way I can eat dinner kind of late, between 6:30 & 7, & I don't usually need anything later in the evening, except fat-free ice cream or yogurt maybe. They say eating more small meals is good for your metabolism so we will see.
Hope you all had a good day. Thanks for listening.

A better day today but it's not over yet! I think I have it under control though. Except I didn't get up & walk today. I just thought I would have a day off since it's Mothers' Day so I've just been real lazy today.
But my eating has been good so far. Only 13 points & I can have 20-27. I just have dinner left & I think I will just have something light, like just veggies & fruit. I already had strawberries & banana for a snack so I need some veggies yet.
I think with the McD's thing, I just want to do something for myself without anyone giving me dirty looks (hubs). But more & more lately, I try to do better things for myself than that, healthier things, like the other day, I bought a pretty necklace that cost more than I usually spend on myself, but I told myself it was my present to myself for my birthday last week & my MIL had given me 25$ to spend too. So I felt really good about it. And it's really pretty!! Maybe if I do things like this, I won't have to sneak to McD's anymore (although I'd better find cheaper things to do LOL). Anyway, thanks for your thoughts, Jenny. I know I'm really weird in this way but I will work it out someday. Also, I wonder why when I posted my weight as 154.4, it came up 154.399!!! Oh, well.
Happy Mothers' Day, all of you, & you have a good day too, DVDMon. Thanks for listening.
