I didn't do any excercise this weekend but I did go grocery shopping and I calculated the points on almost everything and found a couple of surprises both good and bad.

I cut up all the fruit and veggies for lunches this week but realized I need to but double the fruit because there's none left for anything else and last night I was hungry and only had 1 point left and would have been very content will a bowl of mango. I had a 2 point yogurt instead but I need to have the zero point foods to fall back on.

Aquafit tonight

So sorry to hear about your pets!! They have a big place in our heart for many years, it's always a sad time to let them go.

I haven't been counting my points regularly this past 3 weeks, and I have gained 0.6 pounds. This week I started to couch to 5K program and it is hard. I am trying to find new goals to keep me motivated. But, let's just say that my motivation for counting is not always there.

I know I am an stress eater, and these past 3 weeks have been a real struggle workwise (I lost my position and they hired a new manager as well and fired 2 other people I loved deeply...). So, I have to find a way to not eat when I'm stressed out. Not easy to do.

Congrats on everyone on their losses this week!

Mellie, sorry to hear about your job woes. That is happening too often...just heard from a friends whose dh is sole support and was laid off today. I stress-eat too, food=love in this house. I made my way through finding out my ds was being bullied at school a couple of weeks ago (he has an autism spectrum disorder, which makes it doubly dispicable that kids are picking on him), without stress eating--proud of that much at least! You can do it too, it can help you get some control over life. It's also a great time to exercise out your stress. (Doggie got a long, fast walk after my call with the principal!) But, you do what you have to do to get through, so no matter what, don't beat yourself up about any slip ups.

Came by to post a YUM. Is that ok? I don't want to tempt anyone who doesn't have the space for a treat today. Stop reading if that's you!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I saw this recipe on my membership mailing this month. Can't find it now but the details are close enough. 1 tortilla (I used medium sized whole wheat, 2 pts each), 15 g/1 tablespoon of grated chocolate (I used some really good choc chips I had left from Christmas baking, in the freezer--use your food scale, it's easy to go over!), another 2 pts. A sprinkle of cinnamon, a generous sprinkle in my case because I love cinnamon...Put the choc chips and cinnamon on 1/2 of the tortilla, fold it over to make a half-moon, spray with cooking spray and toast in a non-stick frypan, as you would a quesadilla. OMG. Warm and comforting, with gooey chocolate and something exotic from the cinnamon (which doesn't taste like "regular" cinnamon in this combination), and enough of a serving to feel satisfied. I put in about 4 mini marshmallows, thinking it would be smores-ish, but I didn't notice them at all so won't bother again. But, pre-marshmallows, that's a 4 pt treat. OMG, do it if you've got room for a treat in your day. I am going to make it for dd and her friend after school. I checked it out using nutella, thinking it would be easier than choc chips (which I had to go to the freezer to find!) but the amount of nutella seemed skimpy for the same pts value.

I am sorry to hear about your son being bullied. That must be really stressfull as a parent to go trought. Yes, we hear about people losing their job too often. I have a friend who recently lost hers and my husband who lost his position as well...we live in a uncertain world that's for sure.

Exercise does help a lot I must say. Thanks for sharing!

Sorry to hear about your job We just went through layoffs here and while I was not on the recieving end it is hard on everyone.

I'm planning on starting the couch to 5K in July once I'm not walking my kids to school in the morning anymore.

Good for you for getting through your son's bullying without eating. I'm sorry that's happening to him - SO NOT OK!

Your recipe sounds delish - I may need to try that one of these days.

I'm hungry - although I'm still trying to distinquish between real hunger and just not stuffed. I have aquafit tonight and I don't think I brought enough to keep me going all the way through so I may need to grab a snack on the way.

Ohhh, that's a hard one--real body hunger vs all the other cues we are used to listening to to eat. But don't be working out hungry or thirsty, 'k??

I thought there was a little maple leaf smilie, but I can't find it. This guy always looks to me like he has a maple leaf on his chest, but uh, I hope not really, 'cause, y'know, he's a clown

I ate before aquafit...........and after eeeek! I just looked and I used up all my daily points plus a few weeklies every day so far since my wi on Friday! I better plan a few more salads this week! I think I'll bring a nice big Greek one to work tomorrow with some chicken.

Oh when I was at aquafit someone was making an owe it hurts face and the saying no pain no gain came to mind. Then I thought but I don't want a gain I want a loss so I came up with a new one......

I'm the boss - lets have a big loss!! Lol

If you feel like you need more time with any level, just repeat it. I'm not an expert, but I feel confident in saying you don't want to force yourself to move on if you just aren't there yet.

I think it was Week 4 that I got stuck on, and I repeated it at least once, the whole week. My lungs aren't the strongest, and I hadn't done cardio in SO long that those systems really needed more time to catch up. So I repeated it at least once and it was a great decision. When I was ready to move on I was READY.

That's for sure! My head still hurts when I touch the spot where I hit! My back is doing a LOT better, but if I didn't have such a great chiro, I don't know where I'd be right now. It was scary as heck, hurting that badly. (for the newbies... I didn't have my post-run snack last Tuesday, I increased my run by FAR more than 10%, and I had forgotten about the FOUR servings of caffeine I'd managed to have that day (forgot to order the double latte as a DECAF) which basically obliterated the water I had drunk during the day, and it all resulted in me fainting in the shower and then getting halfway back up while still basically unconscious)

More realizations...my run probably felt that great BECAUSE of that caffeine I'd had! Ay ay ay.




On the other hand, lost a ridiculous amount last week. Something like 2.4. I don't know how or why, but it was weird! The loss was definitely NOT worth that fall and being unable to exercise the rest of the week!

Hi Everybody!!! So good to see you all still here

I am living proof of missing a weigh in or two.... cant believe I am that person. I have been going to the meetings but don't weigh in and voila, I think I am up 12-15lbs!!!! I am so disappointed in myself. I am also the member that has sat in a meeting and said "WW is the best thing that has ever happened to me".


What went wrong?

In addition, it occurred to me last night (as I was shoving more food in my face) that if it was alcohol I was lifting to my lips I would certainly be an alcoholic.

Ugh.

I hope everyone here has a great day. I will stick around!

Thank you,
Margaret
