What doesn't kill you will make you stronger...

or healthier and skinnier in my case!! :O)

Wow...It's going on two weeks that I've been on Weight Watchers. This time around I'm actually paying to do the program (before I've learned from friends how to calculate points etc) and I think it was a good choice for me (right now). I'm not confident that I will be able to continue to pay for the program (to attend meetings, go and weigh in, the wonderful website) but I have budgeted myself 3 months of ww at which time I will re-evaluate to see if it something I need to continue to budget in.

Yesterday I did a bunch of running around. It's been a rough past few weeks and my emotions have been a bit like riding a roller coaster. My self esteem has been in and out of the wash. As I was prancing towards the door of one establishment, I suddenly felt "skinnier". I don't know what made me feel that way but I was thankful for the feeling. It's been a long time coming...

Tomorrow is weigh in. I'm a lil nervous because I went over on my weekly points. By late Saturday I was 7 in the hole. Yesterday I ended the day with 4 left over but I'm not sure that that will offset the -7. Even if it does I was at least 3 over. Sometimes eating is hard, especially when you eat out a lot. The quick answer/suggestion is to "stop eating out" but that isn't always feasible around here. Thankfully though the hubs saw my anguish last night during dinner and said "we'll figure something out so that we can eat home cooked meals more often." Thank the Lord! It's also helpful that the weather is turning cooler (our house gets excruciatingly hot when we cook inside...)...


  1. Yay for those times of feeling thinner! I cherish those as well!
    Sounds like you have such a nice hubby. ;)

  2. You're going to rock that weigh in! No worries skinny girl :)

  3. I think you'll find that you've lost a lot more than you think.. Good luck with the weigh in.. Oh, and I'm sure if you figure out the money you are saving by going on WW, you'll be able to find the extra money for the meetings.. If not, maybe you can find people around you to hold WW meetings on your own? Hope it never comes to that.. :)
