Ostrich imitation -- love it!

Had my WI last night. UP .4 lb. Well, I kind of expected it. If I had weighed in today it would have been much better -- scale here was down .6 from yesterday and I've been visiting the commode alot, kwim? My schedule was all out of whack for four days after being at the baby's birth all night Wednesday. My scale went up three pounds in two days. Spent the next four trying to get rid of them.

I did make a change last week that I decided just does not work for me. I thought it was time to start cutting back on eggs and pork for breakfast. This has been my breakfast for years -- eggs, bacon/sausage, and until WW took points away, 1/2 bagel or English muffin w/cream cheese. I've been down to just the eggs and meat now for several months. I decided that I could save a few points by eating WW bagels or English Muffin sandwiches instead. Well, yes I did save a few points. But that carb load w / little protein in the morning made be edgy and irritable and after I saw that I gained a little, I decided that morning carbs are just not for me. So this morning I went back to my good old bacon and eggs. It just feels right for me.

So, hoping for a better WI next Tuesday night. I would like to be down 57 lbs by my birthday (when I'll be 57) on Oct. 5. Not sure I can knock off 6 lbs by then, but at least I can try!

I did my post Disney weigh in today and it was a whole lot better than I thought it would be. I was hoping that it would be under 10 pounds. I also chose today to switch to long sleeves and jeans.

So after a week of Disney dining, and moving into jeans I was up 6.5 and I'm so glad it was under 10 pounds!

So it was really probably a gain of under 5 pounds. I'm not quite prepared to be wearing jeans for my WIs! That takes guts.

I'm feeling really good about WW this time around. This will be the last time I join, I will make lifetime and I will succeed! I think I was finally mentally ready this time. No one is going to bring me down this time! Seeing my little stones move from the weight to be lost to the weight lost jar really helps!

Woohooo!

My own little opinion/advice tidbit is to start by eating your Weekly points! if you start while eating all points "coming to you" and you still lose, then you know that you can do it! Trust me, it's harder to add them in later.

So true! I'm not sure I'll ever be able to do that.

Woo!




Today I put together all my colorful paperclips that our leader lets us take (one for each pound you lose) and wrapped them around my rear view mirror. I can see it but it doesn't hang down or swing or anything. Got the idea from someone else at the Y; DS looked at the car next to us the other week and said "hey, they go to Weight Watchers!" I figured I'd do the same. I don't have a lot of temptations that bug me (see the "eat all points coming to me" mention above...it keeps the desperate need for extremely naughty things at bay!), but when I do have them, it's when I'm out and about. So that paperclip chain might help me in the future.

Finally hit my 10% last night!!! Got my key chain and promptly put my gym membership tag on it! I have joined and quit WW MANY times but since they started celebrating losing 10% this is the first time I have actually done it. My next goal is to lose 10% of my new current weight!

Today, for the first time in many years, I weighed LESS than my husband! AND I was below 200!

We both weigh ourselves first thing in the morning. I was actually down 1.6 from Tuesday a.m. (I go to WW in the evening on Tuesdays), so I think I can expect a loss next week.

Yay!!! I can't wait until I can say the same thing. I am currently only 2 pounds more than him and he's stalled on the weight loss right now. With any luck I will beat him next week! Lol although he can drop 5 pounds at a time without much effort at all....

That would be awesome if you could make it, but even if you don't make it exactly on the 6th, you will be sure to make it in your birthday MONTH .

That's not bad at all, especially since you changed to jeans. I dread the weather change and the additional weight of the warmer clothes. I think I might go ahead and bite the bullet this week too as I know I am already down a bit and I don't mind losing less than a pound as long as it's a loss.

1.4 is great! I am a really slow loser and I would be thrilled with a 1.4 lb loss.

I *love* the paperclip idea! I think I will start on one myself. Do you do anything special for your 5-lbs clips? Maybe a different color?
