I really love the Leslie Sansome walking videos, and you are not down on the floor, so Winston can't attack too bad.
As a teacher, you also know that you need to work on discipline with Winston. Dogs and children will run your life if you let them, but you owe it to him and yourself to teach him how to behave. That might be a workout right there.

I love when I come to this thread and I have to catch up!


I am literally been locking myself in my bedroom since 7pm..I ate as best I could this whole weekend and right around now I would love to raid my pantry and stuff my face but instead I am trying to distract myself.

I went out to dinner with friends on friday night I tried drinking alot of water and I passed on dessert. I did little things like put my fork down between bites and tried to concentrate on teh conversation as oppose to the food

today I went to a bday party and I passed on cake.

I think once I get back into the 130s ill indulge on the cake at a party but until I get there I think I have to start passing on it. the food was catered at the party and i tried to make healthy decisions I loaded up on salad but they had this honey mustard chicken I ate who knows what the calories were just tried to do some sort of portion control

sorry for the rambling its either rambling or go downstairs and EAT!

Well, I've heard it said to be careful what you wish for.....

I needed a jumpstart on my weight loss.......

I got one..... its the 48 hour top and bottom diet (vomiting and diarrhea)

Bad news..... I seriously thought I might just wither up and DIE!

Good news..... Lost 5 pounds and my appetite. So I am definately eating smaller portions just got to keep that one going.


The plan...

Step one: Eat smaller portions. I am not going to deny myself all of my guilty pleasures just yet but I can make a contract with myself to only eat half.

Step two: Take back sometime for me. Come spring it will be warm enough to walk outside. DD2 has dance class 2 nights a week where there is a free walking track available. And I drive right by this same walking track 3 other mornings on my way home from work. So I think I could eaisly get in at least 3 days and work up to 5 days a week of walking.

Step three: Eat more fruits and veggies and less carbs. Drink water - goodbye soda.

So what do ya think?

Your plan sounds great! I would just suggest doing some form of resistance training 15 to 20 minutes 2x a week

You had the "NORO" cleanse as I like to call it

It reminds me of the line from The Devil Wears Prada, "I'm just a stomach flu away from my ideal weight".

I like your plan.

I just saw that having hip fat may be protective against disease. That's where most of mine is!

Thanks redlight and LMO.

I'm feeling much better this evening. I had some roasted chicken breast about 2 or 3 ounces, 2 TBS green beans, and 1 good TBS of scalloped potatoes for dinner. Definately much less than I normally would have eaten. I got a smaller plate and stopped when I felt full- left some chicken on my plate.

Unfortunately I am shaped like an apple which is the "bad" disposition of fat. I carry my weight from my rib cage to the top of my thighs. "Apple" shape is associated with increased risk of diabetes and heart disease. The good news.... in times of famine.... us "fluffy" people will outlast the "sticks" cause we've got more reserve fuel to live on

Well then, I should be healthy as a horse. A personal trainer told me I should go out for body-building with my legs. I don't think it was a compliment.

So glad you're feeling better.

Went to WW last night I was up just a tiny bit. +4 At first I was really upset with myself. I seem to be up and down a bit with the weight loss. I am up a little one week and down a little the next week. Well I sat down and recalulated my points I can eat, it turns out I am eating to much in points. So my points value has gone down with the weight I have lost and this made me feel so much better. We shall see next week where I am.

So our challenge this week with WW is we have to come up with 10 meals using only filling foods. Anyone else doing WW have the same challenge this week?
Today for breakfast using filling foods:

Whole Wheat bagel 6 points
1 tbls FF cream cheese 1 point
Yogurt 2 points


Lunch:
Progreso garden vegetable soup 3 points (for the whole can )
Lg apple 2 points
FF chocolate pudding 1 point

That makes two meals using filling foods. Have a great day every one!

For breakfast I made the following its 5 points on ww:
1 eziekel tortilla
3 egg whites
1/4 cup onions
2 tbsp tomatos
1 jennie o turkey bacon strip
1/4 cup shredded Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese

its a breakfast burrito wrap and its delicious

I love love love the weight watcher bagels I try to limit how often I have them they are made from enriched flour which means most of the nutrients are taken out and it makes it more processed. I am realistic when it comes to eating organic and non processed foods I do have them I just try to limit how often I eat them. Like for example instead of having a ww bagel every morning I would substitute here an there with eziekel bread. However at all costs I avoid high fructose corn syrup. If its mentioned anywhere on the label I dont eat it.

I was at WW last night and someone mentioned tortilla's that are whole wheat from La Tortilla Factory if you buy the smaller ones (for those of you doing WW) I think a serving size is 2 tortilla's it's only 1 point. I went and bought some I am going to try them with taco's this week. They would be good to use them in a wrap to.

I used to buy the Joseph's Flax Seed and Oat Pitas and use those as wraps, but they stopped carrying them in my store.

They were awesome... tons of fiber and only 60 cals. Sigh.

Hey Peeps!

Hope everyone is having a good week!

I wanted to see if anyone has used Weight Watchers Online. I can get 12 weeks free through DH's work, so obviously there is no risk for me to try it, but I was just wondering if your experiences were good/bad/etc. and if you have any tips for me.

I think I would use it mostly to track food (I use a spreadsheet currently) and find new recipes, but if you have any advice, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks!!

Hi UGABelle,
I haven't used WW on line but I can tell you the program works. For me I like to go to meetings, I like having people contact and I like feeling accountable for my weight loss. Plus in the meetings I have the opportunity to discuss anything coming up with in the week that may be a challenge for me (be it food or something else) and how to work around the situtuation.
I think that with the on line program you can also attend meetings as well. I would go ahead and try it. It's free what have you got to lose. Good luck and tell us what you decided to do.

Hi Peeps!

Finally the snow is melting here. I couldn't get out to where I use DSL, between that and working 50+ hours this week, I didn't get to post a loss this past week. A loss that I'm actually excited about. Here it is.........drum roll please (j/k ) Friday the 8th, I weighed 151.5 lbs for a -5 lb weight loss.
Good luck to every one and keep up the good work. No snow in the forecast so I'll be back Friday for weigh-in.
