Official Thursday Weigh-In



I could scarce believe my eyes when I looked at the weigh-in card tonight.


That had to be a mistake! I've been doing WW for over two years - I'm past the stage of three pound losses!

And yet there it was - irrefutable proof that CORE was working for me.

I'm not like some of the ladies at the CORE boards, who say they'll never go back to FLEX, but I'm sold for now!

I realized this week, just how much junk I was spending my points on. Oh, so much junk! And how much nibbling I was doing throughout the day. Oh so much nibbling!

One of the biggest changes has been in my breakfast habits. Before, I would have my two cups of coffee, but I wouldn't eat breakfast for another two hours, until after I took Anna Marie to school. Even though I was hungry. Because I didn't want to start spending my points so early! That's crazy talk, folks. All it did was make me crabby while I was trying to get her out the door, which is bad enough in and of itself without adding low blood sugar to the mix.

I bought myself the latest ediiton of the food guide tonight - guess I'll have to explain this little purchase to Jason when he gets finished putting Anna Marie to bed.

(I've decided that Thursday nights are my nights off, because otherwise, I have to rush through my dinner so I can get her tucked in on time. He's perfectly capable of putting her to bed, dagnabbit!)

Melissa said...

Thanks - yes, it's the smallest I've been since probably middle school!

Now, I have another problem - my cousin is having her son's birthday party Saturday, and there will be pizza! I don't want to mess up this soon, so I'm making a game plan now!

Lissete said...

Yay for you! Oh, and by the way, I think you're a saint. Because there is no way on earth that I would go to Sonic for anything when I'm trying to diet! That, plus Danny would be dead for even asking! :)

Wish I had some willpower. :(

Melissa said...

Ok, Lissete, this is how he asked me to go to Sonic.

"What do you think about going to Sonic to get me a sundae?"

"What do you THINK I think about going to Sonic to get you a sundae?"

I only obliged because he was sick, yet he still had to be at work at 3:00 a.m. the last two days.

I'm such a sucker.

I am SO dang excited for you!

Way to go!

So now you eat breakfast? Pass along those hot tips, you skinny thing!

doodlebugmom said...

Yay! Good for you :)

Melissa said...

Wendy, I've always eaten breakfast, I just eat it when I'm hungry now - not two hours later, when I'm starving and don't have time for a proper meal.

(Also before my blood sugar gets so out of control that I can't handle the morning rush with my six-year-old. Ahem.)
