Today was a weigh-in day

Well yall,I went this a.m. to the local Weight Watchers office and stepped on the scale....Drum roll please....I lost another 3.4 this week. That is a total of 10 lbs in 3 weeks, yay! I am still bored but I am making better choices most of the time, but here is the deal...sometimes I don't. That makes me wonder... how much fat and calories was I consuming before? I know it had to be alot just by the numbers...not so much as how much but what it was I was shoving down my gullet...Usually it was whatever I wanted with no reguard as to the fat or calorie content. I look at food a lot differently now, which is so weird being only three weeks into this deal. I really don't want it if it is loaded with fat or empty calories. Oh don't get me wrong, If I eyeball a piece of chocolate cake long enough, I can still figure out a way to rationalize its way into my mouth. I wanted a piece of cake so badly today I thought I could knaw my way into the glass counter it was sitting in....but I want a loss at my next weigh-in more. I am in a competition with myself...I CAN do this, I WILL do this, I HAVE to do this, I have NO other options at this point. I want to shop wherever I want to. I want to tuck my shirts in. I want to wear a belt. I want to be able to cross my legs at the knees. I want to wear a bra with less that 85 hooks on the back. So basically like I have said in previous posts, I know exactly what I want. I just have to stay focused and get out there and get it...I am starting back at the gym this weekend..I really HATE this part...but I have to get in a little better shape for my trip to Asia. I love yall and please continue to pray, it is working...I will let you know how the gym thing is working out...pun intended. L.

Awesome Job!!! You can do it...we can help. (wait...that's works slogan, UGH hate Home Depot...)

10 pounds is awesome! I'm around 22 right now...and have hit a 'slow down...or plateau" of sorts...it's just not going down, but not going up. Maybe a nice piece of chocolate cake would help....


:) Keep up the great work!!

I'm so PROUD OF YOU. BEYOND WORDS PROUD. I'm so amazed at your thoughts as you are really starting to see that eating has become 'not worth it'. Your quality of life has. PRAISE GOD.
NOW DEB! GET ON IT GIRL! I'm so wanting you to do this WITH US just like Lisa says.
Oh...think of it this way honey,
1 lb at a time. That's all it takes. Love you so much..both of you! p.s. TRISH!! YOU ARE ROCKING LADY

Trish ~CnJ's Mommy~ said...

Deb...that touched me. At my heaviest I dont fit (comfy) in any ride. And just what you said motivated me more. You CAN do it...and facing the scale is the hardest, and I do it ever other day at least. (that way I can catch myself and change what i'm doing wrong if it is going up)

{{hugs}} and good luck!

I have to say I am limited to the places I can go sometimes because of my weight...I can't do Six Flags or even Speed Zone and race cars, it would be like trying to squeeze a side of beef into a sausage casing, I just don't fit. In fact, to be honest, sometimes I have to think about where I am going to sit before I even go places."Do they have chairs to fit me" or whatever, I am so over all that crap...this tonage is coming off, I am over just being tired of being tired of it. Come on Deb are you in it to win it with me? I can't wait to do this together. I need the support of someone whos gonna do this for a long time with me...u in sister????

OK--I'm going to buy a scale today- I don't even own one-hate going to the Dr because I don't want to be weighed--(all that jazz) I'll go to the ticker site and get one! My problem is also--I want to go do the weight watchers/meetings accountability etc- but I really can't afford $60 or $70 however much it is a month right now. I just don't have extra expendable cash unfortunately. SO, I can learn the core rules and point system thing but I would just need to have accountability from you and Aner! In fact--I hope I canfin the extra $20 in the budget to buy a scale!!--I may have to go weigh myself in the Wal-Mart aisle!!! and then just weekly go back to the Wal-mart scale aisle to weigh myself each week!! LOL OK--I was gonna have "taco nite" for my family tonite-- I guess I need to modify that for myself! uggh-- I need to go get on the message boards for weight watcher and read about the rules for core eating! OK--SO I'm IN!!! I'm going to Wal-Mart tonite!!

Trish ~CnJ's Mommy~ said...

Wooo Hooo! One more to join us! Deb you can do it. (hummm I dont even know you...sounds odd coming from me!) I got my scale at walmart it's the "weight watchers one" White with 2 silver lines. It works well, and does .2 incriments which is very nice!

Good luck!!
