Had my second dinner party of the week. I didn't eat much during the day, again wrote down everything, and only went over by a couple of points... Still have a few extra points left but I'm happy to still be on program. Weigh in is Monday. This is my first time doing WW only online. I'm hoping that posting here might give me some of the accountability that I need. Also, sometimes if I'm up during a week, I don't want to weigh in at meetings (not that anyone makes you feel bad, it's just ME). I'm hoping that online only helps.

Right now I'm about 10 pounds from my heaviest, and I feel horrible about it! My cholesterol is up, and I was stress eating. I have enough stress for 1,000 people so that meant I was eating ALOT. Saw some video from our latest Disney trip and it was eye opening to say the least.

So, here I am, halfway through my first week back on program. Last night was our School Council BBQ and I ate through most of my weekly extra points, but I recorded everything that went in my mouth and made much better choices - didn't eat the chips and snacks and didn't eat the EVIL COOKIES (made with Skor bar, butterscotch chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips and Ruffles chips!! OMG) I was pretty happy with myself. I usually find the first two weeks very hard for hunger, but I'm doing OK so far.

My motivation: I was running when I was lighter, and I want to get back at that. The most I ever ran was 6k. I also ran four 5k races (one so slowly that they would collect the route markers as I went past!!! Oh well, I figure I beat everyone home on the couch!!!). I needed some serious motivation, and I found it in my favourite place, Disney. I am aiming for the TOT 10 miler in September 2013. I figure if I get 20 pounds off then I can start running again (walking only until then, I don't want to tempt fate and get injured running too heavy) and start building up to that race.

Hoping to get some support and inspiration here!
I think we'd all be more than happy to become your personal cheering squad for your journey to the TOT 10 mile race. What a great goal to set for yourself!

About those cravings. We were told at the meeting that if we don't just go ahead and satisfy the craving, we will eat everything and anything we can find in an effort to satisfy the craving. Well, the other day I was really craving a hamburger. Not a homemade hamburger either. Dh wanted to go out for ice cream (I don't eat ice cream, so no problem) and I teased him that I needed to get a hamburger. Well, he chose a place, Twin KIss, that sells hamburgers and told me to go in and get one (even though my points were already used for the day). I got that burger (w/ mustard only), cut it in half, threw away half the bread, and thoroughly enjoyed that burger. My craving was completely satisfied. The next day on my home scale I had the lowest numbers yet. So the burger didn't hurt me. In fact, it helped. It took away the craving and kept me from being short-tempered and irritable. I'm sure that had something to do with why dh sent me in to get that burger.

Excellent advice!

Last night at dinner my guests were all eating the chips and whatnot that were laid out and I just told myself, "I know what they taste like. I don't need them now.". That helped me to leave them alone and try a better choice.

I agree. Sometimes I crave ice cream and if I try to have one of the skinny cow or weight watchers ice cream treats it just doesn't cut it. I need the real full fat stuff . The low fat, low calorie ice cream treats are great and they work to satisfy my sweet tooth at night but sometimes I just need the real thing. What is everyones favorite ice cream treat? Mine is the skinny cow 4 points plus ice cream cones. They are soooooo good.

Tomorrow is my 7 mile training run. I'm excited because it is the longest I have run since January. I love that I'm starting to get my conditioning back. What does everyone else have planned for their Sunday?

Also for those of you with goals to run a Disney race or anyone just curious what the races are here is a link to an amazing video. One of these guys videos is the reason I signed up for my first marathon and is the reason I was able to stay motivated. I hope yet helps.

Thanks for the link, I will have to check it out. I am down another 1.4. So that is 12.2 pounds so far!

I hear you about feeding the craving. So when I was craving cake the other day I stopped on my way to work and got an oreo flurry. It fit in my daily points and satisfied me. Now I'm back to only having my regular sweet tooth instead of the insane 'I can't think of anything else' craving! Now if I could spread my points throughout the day a little bit better I would be great.

I was a runner a million years ago, and have found it very helpful to do one of the "couch to 5K" programs out there to get back into it without hurting myself.

I really wonder why it is so hard for me to stick to the plan. I was doing really well and feeling great. Then I just decided to eat out and not count and that one meal turned into 2 1/2 days. This has always been my downfall. I really hope I get this figured out now.
I just want to mention something, so IF it happens it doesn't throw you entirely, but it is possible that *next* week's WI might show the results of the past 3 days. Sometimes weight takes a bit of time to catch up. But IF it does, you will know why, and you will also know that if you stay on the program, by the *following* week even the scale should be back on track.

Visiting family in Phoenix. Hot hot hot HOT here. I keep misjudging the sun and when the heat is at its peak! (note: it peaks at something like 4 here, not noon)

Found a meeting near the hotel, went to it this morning! DH is down a pound (and he'd lost 1.6 last week at another non-home meeting), and I managed another 2.2.

Yeah, you see my post up there about the scale taking time to catch up...I might very well be seeing that next week! Not that I've been "bad", but I'm not running (have I mentioned the heat?), I'm fairly dehydrated despite my nearly best efforts, and have been doing a bit more estimating than I do at home.



But we did go out and buy a new food scale! We have an ancient WW scale at home, and it's hard with our big fiesta ware plates; we max out the weight on it, and even when we don't do that, it's hard to see the numbers. Got an 11 lb max OXO scale with a pull-out face. That's making it a little easier while on the trip, but it'll be "fun" bringing it home in a carryon, LOL!

I am trying to figure out points for a Cornish Game Hen. I have seen them from 6-7 points all the way to 11 points. I have no idea what to think... I'm just rubbing the outsides with a little olive oil and adding seasonings. Erf.

I think I'd count it like chicken. It's just a little hybrid fowl. I usually try to eat just the meat and remove the cooked skin.
