Weight: 152.6

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.

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,,:}}

maria7 on 01/28/2001:
Wow! So much exercise! You go, girl, you're doing GREAT! Maria

muggg on 01/28/2001:
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:}}}

I agree, you DID have an A+ day yesterday! You did great on your workouts and eating! Hope you are feeling better. Maria

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

pastagal on 01/25/2001:
You are doing SUPER,,,you really are;}}} keep it up,,gosh your so close to your goal with weight watchers and then you can start a new goal for you:}} will miss you while your away ,but we will be here when you return:}}

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:
Wow! what dedication... you did so well! And you're right.. the conversation and the company make better memories that the food does!

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.

maria7 on 01/18/2001:
Hey there...you can do it! I believe you will! That is plenty of time to get to your goalweight and we are all with you! Maria

And yes ,stress plays a major part in our weight and how well we do,,,but gosh,,isn't it a great feeling when you walk in weight watchers and get on the scale convinced you have not lost and she says,,,yeah,,,you lost such and such,,,i love that feeling:}} well keep it up and you will be at goal in no time:}}

muggg on 01/18/2001:
I am so glad you had a loss at meeting. That is terrific! I feel better when I exercise too.. so keep up that walking! I know it helps get rid of stress!

So, I haven't been here for 2 days, though I've checked in to see how everyone is doing. I'm kinda feeling left out, since you are all doing so well & I'm still struggling, going up & down with my weight. I have one very good day & then I don't keep it up for a couple of days. I'm sure I won't have a loss this week but I plan on going to the meeting anyway. Unless it snows or we get freezing rain in the morning, I hate to drive in that. They are calling for it but it might not happen. So I plan on going. I was thinking today that with all the money I've invested in WW for a year & a half, it's time to make my goal so I can be a lifetime member & not pay anymore. Time to quit fooling around, that's too much money to be spending. 48$ a month. What the heck am I doing? I know I can do it, I've had a really good day today & never really felt hungry at all, there is so much I can eat on WW. But I haven't done exercise for 3 days except for bowling yesterday. So I need to get back to that. I'll tell ya, with all the packing we're doing, my life feels in total chaos. There are boxes everywhere in the house & so much on our minds & so much to do. I don't do well when I'm not on my usual schedule & my house is a mess. I just keep thinking about after this is all over & we're settled in our nice new house. That keeps me going. I still wake up in the middle of the night & worry about things that need to be done before we move, a thousand things, it seems. And only 5 weeks to do them. Oh, well, I guess it will all work out in the end, it has to, LOL. Have any of you flown on a plane with your pet? I'm going to be flying out to Arizona with my cat & I'm kinda worried about that, never done it before. Well, I've just run on here, sorry. I will report tomorrow on the weigh-in. Thanks for listening.

muggg on 01/17/2001:
Oh my goodness! Everything worries a person more at night time.. truly. Everything will work out. That's not to say there won't be some difficulties.. but most things we worry about don't matter as much as we think they will.

Hang in there. It will be alright and your new place is going to be fantastic. You will enjoy it so much! Just look how happy I am in my new place.

Yes, there is a lot to do when you move. It will all happen though. Moving is good for you though.. make you sort through all those things you've been saving! LOL

On the weight loss front.... I don't know what happened to put me on track... but I'm sending you some... ready???? here it comes.... {{{ hugs }}}.

maria7 on 01/17/2001:
Hey there! Now, Now! You are undergoing a LOT of stress...moving is very stressful...I remember when we got this house and we had to move everything, how stressful it was, but how happy we were when after it was alllllllllllllllllll done we were comfy in our new home! It will get better. Now is not the time to do anything drastic to get your weight down, while you are going through all this moving, wait til you're settled in first. In the meantime, I congratulate you on holding the fort down and NOT gaining! Maria

pastagal on 01/17/2001:
Hey girlfriend,,,,,YOU can do it!!! don't you dare give up on yourself,,,you have come to far to do that:} Just try taking it ONE day at a time,don't worry about tomorrow,or yesterday,just today,do that everyday and see if that helps:}}

No never been on a plane with my animals,,that should be interesting tho,lets us know how that goes:} Have a nice evening,,,,:}

Be careful about pushing to lose, now. Your under a lot of stress and you don't want to add more. After you move, you'll lose the last 5 pounds and become a lifetime member.

Yippee, finally a great day on program. I didn't make any mistakes for a change. I finally got up about 9 this morning cause I wasn't feeling too good during the night--could it have been the way I pigged out at dinner, ya think? Anyway, I didn't really feel like doing the treadmill, but I just forced myself & I did feel better afterward, so I'm glad I did it. I told myself I'd just do 2 miles but I felt better, so I went & did 3 miles, well, really 3.2, I do .1 for warm-up & .1 for cool-down. Also, I burned 367 calories today where yesterday I burned 330. I remembered to use the incline today so I did a better workout. I didn't do any bike-riding today though, we've been real busy packing again. So I've been up & down stairs lots of times today. I've done really well on my food today too, only 19 points so far. I may have a small snack soon & then that's it for the day. I've had 80 ounces of water & will have 16 more soon when I take my Metamucil, which I do every evening (I'm an old person, ya know). Oh, I also did the 100 ab crunches this morning too, why do I always forget to add that. Gonna have those great abs soon, I hope. I only have 4 more WW meetings here before we move & I would like to make my goal by then. That means 5 pounds, my goal is 150, since I got an okay from my doctor. Weight Watchers said my goal should be 145 but if you get a note from your doctor, you can use that as your goal. Really, he's surprised I'm even getting close to that, I was so overweight for so long. So he thought 150 would be a good weight for me to shoot for. Boy, it's sure taking me a long time to get there, with all the backsliding I do. But I think when I do reach it, I won't be so apt to put it all back on. Well, gotta go check up on you all. Thanks for listening.

Here's what I did today--increased my time on the treadmill to 3 miles & did 100 ab crunches (also did these yesterday but forgot to mention). I didn't eat really well, too many points again. I was doing fine until dinner & since I didn't figure out the points on what I made, I just ate until I was full. Probably wasn't too bad, but not as good as I would have liked. At least it had lots of vegetables, so I did get my quota in for the day. Hope tomorrow will be a better day. I feel like now that I've started the exercise again I've been more hungry than I had been. I'll just have to fight that I guess. You are all doing so well, I really need to catch up. I just keep thinking of you all & that should help me do better. Thanks for being there & thanks for listening.

km on 01/14/2001:
Sounds like you are doing great watching what you are eating,exercising it will happen it has too you are doing everything right. Exercise is my problem I hate it and never do it but have to start. Well have a great day~Kim~

pastagal on 01/14/2001:
Aww thank you for the sweet comment to my entry:}} i really do love weight watchers,and i think i would make a great spokes person for it:} i don't know,,its just so easy to follow and the thing i enjoy so much is not feeling deprived,and my family loves such a variety of foods around here that if i were to restrict myself of something then i know it would not work for me,,it seems if you tell yourself you can have something you don't seem to want or crave it as much,if you tell yourself no i am not allowed to have that,thats when you can't stay away from it and you think of it all the time,and with the other programs,sooner or later your going to go back to eating normal again,,and when you do,its starts all over,so if you learn to just control your portions and get use to that,then you have really concured your quest:}}} Have a wonderful day ok:}}
