Just like a 3 year old!!

I got all excited over a gold star!!!
It's my first 5lb loss :)

It seems a small thing and it's a bit embarrassing standing up in front of a bunch of people who may have 100lb to loose but seriously, you can be a food addict and have eating disorders and not be huge.
I am learning this program as a way of life and this little star signifies I am doing it.
So far I learned:
1, I used to eat even more crap than I acknowledged.
2, I eat from boredom and stress, not hunger.
3, Fruit is my friend and I love it :)I'm talking, melon, kiwi, mango, good fruit.
4, You can loose lbs even when your sick as long as you stay in your points.
5, Exercise hard and eat the extra points, you earned them.
6, Progresso soup is your buddy, 0 or 1 point per serving.
7, Not having guilt for eating something you like is how you don't eat more of it.
8, This is easily something I could live on forever.
9, Having friends, support and accountability is the shoulder we all need.
10, Feeling good makes us better looking!!!!

So it's official, I'm at "H" which where I'm from is refered to as "aitch" so feel free to call me "aitch"

This is what the devil looks like!

My son Curt!! 6'2", 170lbs, 8% body fat.
Lives on a diet of Mountain Dew, Club crackers, cheese whiz and cookies.
He feels the need to make them just as I'm preparing dinner, starving and of course when I eat one he reminds me it's 100 points.

Your gonna waste those?

Someone once told me fruit lasts longer in the fridge. True! that would be because nobody actually looks for it and it stays there forever. I have thrown so much fruit away over the years that I decided to be like my Mum and have a fruit bowl out for anyone to help themselves to. No one has really been doing this so today I found myself throwing away a bunch of oranges and replacing them with new fruit.
This is when Ronan says "your gonna waste my favorite apples on a display?"
That explains allot.
I admit that in the past my fruit has been orange or green, thus matching beautifully my decor but I really did intend on it being eaten.
So help yourselves everyone.

I'm all about emergency prep.

Have you got a 72 hour kit?
I have realised that despite my best intentions, sometimes you just want something, NOW!!!! So I have built the most fabulous emergency prep kit that includes all things yummy under 2 points. I plan to add to it with suggestions.

I LOVE the ww ice cream bars with oreo, doesn't taste low fat at all.
I'm sorry that not everyone can have a case of Caballo Negro Zero on hand, luckily I have an "in" with one of the bosses :)It's not available to all yet, but watch this space.

half way to H.

I'm planning on breaking my goals into 3 parts.H.O.T.
Part 1 (H) would be my 5lb required by weight watchers and as of yesterday I am half way there. Not too shabby!!!
Part 2 (O)is another 5lb which would take me to where I am not disgusted with myself, making me a HO! That will be a challenge but at least I'll be back to wearing smoking hot clothes and everyone wishing they were me :)
Part 3 (T) will be my final 5 bonus lbs, if I get here I'll be dang HOT. tst don't touch.
I would like to maintain in between Ho and Hot status so watch this space.

The picture of my hunny is just eye candy, he's already HOT!!

Just Like Oprah!

Well minus the money, homes, personal chefs etc etc, oh yes and I'm white!
I'm referring to yo yo weight gain/loss.

I found myself in a desperate attempt to dress my cute "tom boy" in some clothes we both liked. I figured the "rock star" look, with black and some sparkle with boots etc might work for her when she observantly pointed out, as only a loving 7 year old can, that her jeans were very skinny. I replied, "I know, they are supposed to be, just like Mummy's" at which point she shares, yours aren't skinny!

So here I am again looking at my weight gain and wondering how and why I get here every other year or so. I fluctuate 10lbs but it effects me tremendously.
I am bravely sharing my pics for all you saying "puuleeeese"






I feel very positive about this weight watcher program since my sister in law lost my entire body weight on it.

I feel lucky that my starting weight is still within my "healthy" range and if I lost 10% of my body weight (WW recommended first goal)I would be at my High school, Wedding,and ideal weight. The fact is, I can't fit in my clothes, I hate shopping, I feel disgusting and I'm a cow to be around with all this negative vibe.
So wish me luck people, I have a serious addiction to all things salty.

That's a big OOOPS!!

So it's day 1 and I'm thinking I'm all that with my 5 point breakfast and hardcore gym class earning me extra points ( even though that secret is saved for week 2, I have friends in the previously fat places so, yeah that's 4 points for me)I'm not hungry and so I make a controlled decission to pick up my favorite Chicken Salad from Rubio's. (Grilled chicken, chopped lettuce and cabbage, salsa, a few chopped chips in it, a little shredded cheese and a dressing of some sort) So I'm guessing with the aid of my new handy dandy pocket guide about 9 points plus dressing.
Ding Ding, correct it was 9 but when I got home and looked it up, the dressing alone is 8 points.
So that's my lesson for day 1.
