I am so disgusted with myself right now. I want to lose weight but day after day I keep defeating myself. I begin the day thinking this is going to be the day that I stay focused and stick to my diet.
Well, it never is. I live alone. My husband died last year and I have such a hard time fixing a good meal for myself. It is easier to eat junk and not have to enjoy a good meal by myself.
I would so love someone to partner up with me and maybe kick me in the butt a few times so I can get this weight off. I have attended the meetings but end up not wanting to go and register as a failure for that week.
I weigh myself each day and even though I am not losing, I am not gaining. I cannot rejoice in that because I want to lose.
Well, busy day today. I had several trips throughout the day to the pharmacy, bank etc.
I managed to make my Weight Watchers meeting on time and even though I had some stressful days/nights. Didn't fully track everything that I put into my mouth I still managed to lose 0.4 pounds!
I'm back on track making sure that I write it all down and hope to hit my 10% goal next week!
Yesterday was very...trying. My mom had stated that dad had some tires that he wanted to get rid of. So family hops into the truck to go pick em up since dad is unable. Youngest son throws up in the back seat of the truck (oh joy). Get to mom's...tires are junk, been sitting for years, stinky. Get those loaded up along with a manual treadmill that can still be used. Son then throws up again...at least this time we were prepared and had a bag. By the time we get home it's too late to do anything.
Today I steam cleaned the truck...oh happy day. Scrubbed the treadmill...that wasn't so bad. Got groceries and now I'm ready for a nap.
I'm an emotional eater...I know this. I try to lower my stress level but lately it's in overdrive. My father was diagnosed last year with a brain tumor. 3 surgeries later he's still with us but it's difficult. In March, he had the second tumor removed and was in the hospital for a week and a half, then transferred to another facility for physical therapy. 5 1/2 weeks later he finally came home (Monday). My mother called me to let me know that he was taken back to the hospital yesterday due to breathing heavy and being unresponsive for a bit. Well after a bag of popcorn later I finally got the call that he has swelling on the brain. They gave him an anti-inflammatory IV medication to reduce the swelling and start him on seizure meds.
If all goes well, he will be home tomorrow but who knows for how long. It's been decided that he will not have anymore surgeries due to recovery time, cost and it's not the quality of life that he wants. He can no longer drive and is dependent on everyone for everything. He sleeps mostly which I feel is due to depression.
I try to be the good daughter and support my parents decision but being a nurse I know what's coming and am having a hard time with it. I'm the baby of the family and am not ready to see him leave this earth but know it's coming. If we are lucky we may get another year with him...but what will his life be? Eat, sleep, tv and trips to the dr...what kind of life is that?
Today proved to be a long day. Kids were grumpy and arguing all day. I managed to get a few groceries and not purchase candy or ice cream. I took kids to the park and let them run off some energy and actually got some activity and swung on the swings. I got in about 20 minutes of walking also. Tomorrow will be better!
Well so far so good.. not trying to lose quite so fast so I've started adding a little more protein to the ol' diet. But I must say.. I enjoy the meals.. usually have Smart Ones for breakfast & lunch (during the work week) then have a sensible meal in the evening. I get quite a bit of exercise in during the day weather it be walking here at work or chores at home. I also want to add a bit of weight training.. so we'll see how that all goes.
The meals are helping so much and being obsessive with my food logging on Weight Watchers.com is keeping me on track. My sweet hubby is loving my Smart Ones meals and munching them up! Tomorrow is the big weigh in...a little nervous but I think I am making great progress! I gained two lbs initially, but I had just come off a no carb keto diet that was completely unsustainable for me, lover of carbs that I am. I have lost those two lbs again since starting and hopefully a little more. Will know tomorrow!
Im still going strong I have lost a total of 23 pounds in 2 and half months. My pant is falling off me but when I went to the next size they was to tight my daughter said it because Im losing inches. Im doing great and Im loving my Smart Ones . Today the ad in the paper have them on sale for 1.99 and Im on my way to get some. Well be strong and look good.
I have been on this road before. And had success only to run it into the ditch! But I am back on board and I am going to do this! I love the Smart Ones and rely on them to get me from day to day. I have lost 12.5 pounds and am feeling so positive about the 360 program. I have never tried Nutrasystem or Jenny's but I can bet the food isn't as tasty. Thank you Smart Ones and Weight Watcher's!
I just joined this community after joining Weight Watchers Online. I have 30 lbs to lose, but any small success would be great! I have a two year old son and a wonderful husband but am feeling the time is here to change for me. I still look six months pregnant! It isn't so much my size, as my waist that is the problem. I carry all of my weight in my stomach...so picture a candied apple on a stick...yep, that's me!
I used that coupon for $3 off to get some of the Smart Ones frozen meals to eat on work days. Going to work not knowing what I am going to be eating for breatfast or lunch kills me. Some days I do great, but others...fast food it is.
I had the thin crust pepperoni pizza today, pizza is my weakness, and it was great. Hit the spot and made me feel like I splurged! Only 7 points! It is so refreshing not to have to figure out the points, and risk not ncalculating it 100% honestly...lol. I have been on weight watchers for one week tomorrow and I haven't lost anything yet, but I have gained an awareness and new habits that will kick in when I get consistant and start working for me. I am sure of it, I am ready, and I am doing this!
Well I have to say I am impressed so far. I have lost 3lb and that is great! Not to say I have had no slip ups, but I have stuck to the smart ones for every meal except Saturday, I made home made raviollis and couldn't resist. But I did manage to walk 5 out of the 8 days so far and I did Zumba for 45 min. today and plan to walk for an hour also. I am not hungary at all and now I am full with just the meal and a salad or fruit. Also I want to add, those salad kits from lean cusine are amazing! And are like 6- 8 points. Now when I started the first days I was afraid I would get tired of salad because you cannot have too much dressing and plus it requires me to have to count and add more than I wish on a diet (yes I am a lazy dieter lol) but the kit comes with it all and you can eat it and feel good. Not feel like u are cheating because theres dressing or chicken on it. But anyway, I hope my other blogs have helped you guys. And I am still going strong maybe a lil stronger so I can see the next results on monday
I'm new to blogging but not new to eating Smart Ones. But I'm new to trying this as my diet tool. I don't want to have to remember how many points in this or that, I don't like to cook so I want something quick and easy that i can grab that already has the points on it. I'm looking for a menu for the week that helps me to know what I should buy/eat. I want to lose weight but don't want to have to follow recipes etc. etc. Any idea suggestions?
Today is going very well I am not hungary at all but due to bad weather I can not get out and walk today so I will use this as my rest day. Today I had a good dinner I had the fried rice, but I added some extra broccolli and peppers, I also added 4oz of shrimp which only adds up to 2 points plus values. And some of you are probaly wondering especially the ones like me who can not afford to do WW I have found the complete food list from A - Z on-line. And I also have found the complete restaurant list so when you dine out. I am going to try and figure out how to upload the list on here so bear with me. But if not go to bing and just put in points plus food list and you will have to go through alot to find it but like I said I will work on how to get it on here. But with that being said I am feeling good and confident that I will get to my goal.
Been in and out of WW now for a couple years. Have had success and then for whatever reason slipped and starting gaining again. Now I'm pretty much where I initially started from.
My fam' is taking a trip to Hawaii in November and I want to be ready. My bro' inlaw is losing using Smart Ones.. so I decided I'd give it a go. I get burned out keeping track of how much I'm eating, the whole points thing, and so I get lax-a-dazy after awhile.
Started using Smart Ones this week and really like them. I'm surprised my appetite is satisfied after having them so I believe this is really doable. I can track my points easily 'cuz there right there on the box for me. I can supplement these with a salad, fruit whatever and I'm good to go.
So we shall see. Stay tuned... hoping to be a major loser!
I am on day two, and I hope this works for me. I am 5'7 and 230lbs. I am not trying to be too thin, I just want to loose my gut lol! I would love to get to 190 or 180 thats my goal! I am only eating the smart ones to start off with. Because i do not like to measure or count calories. I am not signed up to ww because I can not afford it. But I have done alot of research and have found out my points plus# and I will be adding a piece of fruit and a salad to each meal. I have a very big appitie and I was hungary yesterday, but today I feel a lot better. Is any one else only doing the smart ones and if so are you loosing!
Well I am back after who knows how long. I kind of went off of my SmartOnes on then off and so forth this last month. My weight is still 162 so I am happy I sustained it. I had my sister visit from out of town and then my father-in-law is visiting for 2 weeks, then there was St.Patricks day (half-Irish so it is like Christmas in my house) then a week later, Easter (which I have a 3 yr old so I couldnt say no to an basket full of all the good stuff) So I will admit, I fell off, stopped working out like I was doing and now a little disappointed because now I have to start all over, But, I am writing now, so I am committing the next week to seeing how I do. No more holidays for a while, I am going to wake up and walk 2 miles every day or bring the boys to the park and walk, use my NikeFuelband and start over. I have 3.5 months left to shed this weight for my 15 yr anniversary so I am determined to see my husband's eyes sparkle! See you next week!
