I need to just confess on here so I can move on. I have had a horrible past 3 days eating. I mean, BAD. I wanted to let you all know so I can just move on and be accountable to you all for getting back on plan tomorrow, and hope that the damage isn't TOO bad on Thursday. :-(

"Joy bells ring! Are you listening?
On the scale, numbers glistening,
A beautiful sight, I'm happy tonight,
Walking in a happy ONEDERLAND!!!"
Yahoo!!!! I weighed in tonight and FINALLY made it to ONDERLAND!!! I weighed 198.6 tonight, for a loss of 1.8! I feel like such a burden has been lifted to not be in the 200's anymore! I hope I will never be there again....unless of course I'm pregnant! :-) Next week I will hopefully lose at least .6 of a pound and get my 10 pounds down, since I re-joined WW in September. I'm going to try to do the Shred as many days as I can until Florida...hopefully I can tone up a little in the next 2 1/2 weeks! Hope you all have a great week!!
Thursday, October 6, 2011
Today started off with a trip to the dentist to get 2 cavities filled...that was fun! :-( I was hoping so much to make it to the 100's this week, but I didn't! I did lose though, so I can't complain too much. I weighed in at 200.2, for a loss of .8 of a pound. That is 14.8 pounds since April....not that great, but at least I'm DOWN and not UP! :-) I'm not going to write much now...I'm watching the Yankees, and HOPING they can win! ;-) Have a great night!

Well, last night was Weight Watchers, so it's time to post my weigh in results. Let me tell you first off, that I was a little scared going last night. I made the mistake of buying something this week that I can NOT control myself around! And that thing is....
Yes sir, that's right. I probably ate over half a jar this past week! I hate to admit that, but it's the truth. I am tempted to throw away what is left, just to get it AWAY FROM ME, but my kids like it, so I guess I need to just control myself. So with all that being said, at WI last night, I wasn't really sure how I was going to do....but...I was 201!! Which is a 1.2 pound loss! I was pretty happy with that!
Ok, so I am so stinkin close to "one-derland" now, I want it BAD! My goal for this week is to lose 2 pounds and be 199 at next weeks weigh in. It is going to be pretty much impossible though, because I have a monthly visitor coming next week, but I am going to try my hardest! Maybe if I do every day pefect? Let this week BEGIN!!!
Thursday, September 22, 2011
Hello to my followers! :-) Tonight I went to Weight Watchers and I weighed 202.2, which was 2.2 pounds down! I was really excited about it! :-) Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be in "Onederland!" I worked really hard Monday through Thursday, and haven't had any sweets! I did pretty good with eating fewer carbs too, so I'm sure that helped with my loss. I would have been down even more if I didn't have the bad weekend! Who knows...maybe I can work hard all week and be in the 100's next week! ;-) Even 199.9 would be amazing! I'm getting in a good groove right now, so I am just hoping that it will continue! 40 days until Florida!!
Monday, September 19, 2011
Sorry it's been so long since I posted! My mom and I went away this past weekend with my 2 girls to Toronto, Canada. We took them to Canada's Wonderland, and stayed in a hotel with a pool! :-) They had a lot of fun! Of course I ate more than I should have, but probably not as much as I could have! I did pack fruit/nuts that I did eat, but of course I ate bad stuff too.
So, I am moving my WI days to Thursday nights, now that I am going to Weight Watchers, cause that's when my meetings are. I weighed in last Thursday at 204.4. Slowly but surely heading down. I am going to try something for the next 6 weeks though. Tell me if I'm crazy! ;-)
I am going to try to go off of sugar/sweets until my Florida trip. I know I can do it, because I did it for a month before. I also am going to try to reduce my intake of carbs. Just try to skip bread as much as I can, and "carby" snacks, and try to eat more protein. I don't like "no carb" diets, because I don't see how it can be healthy to be able to eat 2 pounds of bacon, but not a banana! So, I'm still doing Weight Watchers, but just trying to eat as little "bread type" carbs as I can. I am still going to eat my fruit though! I'm just going to try to eat only wheat, if I have bread at all. I know this is going to be hard, but I think I will be glad I did it when I'm in Florida in 6 weeks! When I don't eat carbs, my stomach gets flatter too, so I KNOW I will appreciate that!
Well, I will try to post again before Thursday and let you know how my new "plan" is working, but if I don't get a chance, I will be back to let you know how my WI goes on Thursday night! Have a great week!
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Well, I weighed in yesterday, at 205! That's 2 1/2 pounds down from last week! Go me! ;-) Yesterday we had a huge Labor Day party at our house - 40 people in our 1,300 square foot ranch - but it was so much fun! I felt like I didn't do too bad eating either, cause I was so busy running around doing things. I got a walk in yesterday too, so I'm sure that helped. This morning was ROUGH waking up, cause I didn't go to bed until midnight....ahhhh....but I'm so glad I did once I was walking! I have been wearing this -http://www.walmart.com/ip/Gold-s-Gym-Waist-Trimmer-Belt/12167842?findingMethod=Recommendation:wm:RecentlyViewedItems - when I work out, and I have to tell you, I can notice a difference in my stomach in only 4 days! It makes you SWEAT!!!! It is supposed to help you lose water weight in your stomach from sweat, and I really think it works! For $5, you can't go wrong with trying it!
Ok, so my goal for next Monday is to be 202.5. I know it is alot to ask for 2.5 pounds 2 weeks in a row, but I am going to try for it. I'm going to Florida in about 60 days, and I would love to lose 20 by then. That's about 2 pounds a week. If I do it, AWESOME! If I don't, that's ok too...as long as I tried my hardest!
Did you all have a nice weekend?
Friday, September 2, 2011
I can not tell you all how much I am loving walking 3 miles every morning with my friend! There is probably not one person that does not hate getting up in the morning anymore than I do, so I can't believe how much I'm enjoying it! It's so nice to go out in the crisp morning air, and be able to chat with a friend for an hour before I have to come back and start my crazy day with 3 kids! I will weigh in on Monday...I don't know if I've lost anything, but I feel better. Maybe I'm losing inches. The only thing is, now I have to go to bed by 9pm, in order to get some solid sleep since I have to get up so early! I feel like I don't have as much time at night to catch up online, but it is worth it to give it up, to get some sleep! :-) I will be posting again after the weekend! Have a great holiday!
Monday, August 29, 2011
Well, the past week was rough...lots of birthday parties=lots of junk food! I weighed in this morning at 207.5. I will return to posting my WI's on Mondays. I'm thinking about joining back up at WW again this week. I know it's a lot of money, but it helps so much to go to the meetings! I just have to make sure my sister can watch the kids so I can go! :-)
Today was the start of a new "adventure" for me! My neighbor and I are going to start walking together every morning! I'm so excited about it! This morning I woke up at 5:45am and we started walking at 6am. We did 3 miles in about 45 minutes. We are going to do the 3 mile route each day. I am NOT a morning person, so it is really hard for me to get out of bed that early, but knowing that someone is waiting for me, makes me be accountable! I'm hoping getting that workout in every morning, will help me make wiser food choices throughout the day!
I did good with eating today too! I'm starving now of course, but I'm going to go to bed, and dream of being skinny, instead of eating! Good night! :-)
Sunday, August 28, 2011
Just want to let you know, I will be posting tomorrow, and hopefully starting to get in the habit of posting daily again. I had a crazy busy week with 1st birthday parties for my son, so I have not had much time for anything! I will be back tomorrow!
Also, I want to thank you all for the encouraging words on my last post, and for my new followers! It really helps! :-)
Monday, August 22, 2011
I have been dreading updating this blog, because I'm embarrassed, quite honestly. I have been up, down, up, down, up, down, for the past 2 months. Right now I am "up". I did two weeks perfectly and was 204, then I had a busy, BAD weekend of eating, and I'm 208 this morning. 208???? REALLY??? It took only 2 days to gain that? I'm just depressed because I am struggling so much this time around. My son just turned 1 yesterday, and to think I am still over 200 a year after his birth, is sickening to me. I could give excuses all day like I am crazy busy with three kids, don't have time to work out, I'm homeschooling, my baby gets up at the crack of dawn, etc, but in all honesty, there is no excuse. I am not trying hard enough. We are leaving for Disney on November 1st, and I would like to be at least 190 by then. Of course my original plan was to be 170, but I screwed that up.
Sorry for the depressing post. I stink, and sometimes I just need to beat myself up....
Monday, June 27, 2011
Happy Monday! I weighed in yesterday and was 202.5. That is 1.5 pounds gone this past week! Whoohoo! I'm thinking now that I won't make it to 199.5 by Sunday, but I'm ok. I changed my goal for next week to WI at 201. I would be happy with that!
I was so proud of myself this week! Because of Sunday being my "Cheat and Sweet" day, I try to do perfect on plan the rest of the week. I also am not letting myself change my cheat day to another day of the week if i have something going on. I want to just keep it to Sunday, no matter what. Saturday I went to an amusement park with my husband and my two girls. We had so much fun! Besides walking around for 9 hours straight, I did over 1,500 steps! It was 80 steps every time we went up to the water slide...so we just counted how many times we did it! I was TIRED afterwards!! We went with his work, so they had free food...including ice cream! I didn't have any though! The hardest thing was to not get any soft serve ice cream or fried dough! :-) I just kept reminding myself that I could have something sweet the next day! Yesterday for my cheat day, I had a leftover frozen piece of Toll House pie, and a Frozen Hot Chocolate from Dunkin Donuts! It was AMAZING!!! I had been wanting to try one for so long! Today is back to the plan...started with my Fiber One Honey cereal, and a piece of toast. Hoping for another good week!!!
P.S. Have you guys tried the Fiber One brownies? They come in Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Peanut Butter. I am officially addicted to them. If you go on the Fiber One website, you can print out a 75 cents off coupon for them. They are only 2 POINT PLUS!!!! I seriously have about 10 boxes of them in my freezer! :-)
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Hello my faithful 13! :-) I wanted to let you all know that I weighed in on Sunday, and I was 204. Now to you guys, that is down 1/2 pound from 2 weeks ago, BUT, last Tuesday I weighed 207.5 from pigging out for 2 weeks, so I really lost 3.5 in 4 days! :-) I was pretty happy with that. I need to just stay motivated so I can lose the last 5 I need to, in order to get to the 100's. Then I can start working to the next small goal I've made...getting out of the 190s! I figure I should just take it 10 pounds at a time, instead of having such a HUGE goal of losing 35 pounds!
It went really well having Sunday be my "Cheat and Sweets" day. ( Catchy name...don't you think? :-) It was so nice to have a day that I gave myself permission to indulge and enjoy myself...because then I didn't feel guilty about it afterwards. I made Toll House Pie, and enjoyed it immensely! You know what though? I thought that having sweets and stuff would make me want them on Monday, but I think it did the opposite! Yesterday I went to a birthday party, and they had yummy cake with tons of frosting, and I wasn't even tempted. I was just thinking of what dessert I could make this coming Sunday that would be even BETTER than that, and how good I would feel eating it, if I felt I did good all week. I don't know if this makes any sense to you guys...haha...but I really feel like it is working for me right now.
I also wanted to start something new on here. I would like to set a 2 week goal, every 2 weeks. ( OBVIOUSLY! :-) My 2 week goal from this past Sunday, is to be 199 on July 3rd. I know that is 2.5 pounds a week, but I'm going to shoot for it. If I don't, then hopefully I can do it in 3 weeks. I'm not going to beat myself up about it if I don't do it, but I like having a goal!
What would you like to accomplish in the next 2 weeks? I'd love to hear!
Thursday, June 16, 2011
Sorry it has been so long since I've posted. There are many reasons...I have been EXTREMELY busy, and honestly, the past 2 weeks were not good for me. Just as I expected, once I "went back on sugar" I went crazy. Ate more than usual whenever I was around sweets. I'm not going to lie...it was bad. I decided yesterday that I needed to put it to a stop before I got out of control. I decided that I am only going to have sweets on Sundays. One day a week. That way, I don't deprive myself completly, so I go CRAZY when I do have them, but I will limit my damage to just one day. We will see how it goes. I did not weigh in this week because I wanted to give myself the 5 days of doing good before I had an "official" weigh in. I need to just crack down...my vacation is only 5 months away, and I refuse to look like this when we go.
I'm sorry to my followers...this blog is just me "doing good" and then "doing bad" and then "doing good" and then "doing bad" again. I'm sorry I'm not more of an encouragement to you all, like you deserve. I'm really trying my best! Stay with me, please? :-)
Monday, June 6, 2011
Ok, just to let you all know, I changed my WI day to Sundays now. I just think it is going to work out better for me overall, even though I may not have the time to post the results until Monday.
So I have NO idea how this can even be, since I have eaten everything in sight for the past 10 days, but when I weighed in yesterday, I was 204.5. Yup, up 1/2 pound from 2 weeks ago. I'm afraid all that food I ate is going to eventually show up on the scale or something...but maybe I will get lucky and it won't. I'm so close to "ONE-derland" I can smell it, and I want it so bad! By July 1st, I would really like to be at least 199! I will try posting here more often to keep myself accountable. It was a crazy 2 weeks...2 of my best friends came home to NY, with their families...one after a year of being gone and the other after 2 years of being in Africa! We have been so busy catching up, having sleepovers with our kids, and partying! :-) Hopefully things will slow down a little bit now!
Thanks for all the encouraging words yesterday! Tania, I will take on that challenge with you to only eat my DP each day! It is not going to be easy for me, but I will try my VERY best! :-)
Saturday, June 4, 2011
Member that whole "mountaintop" I was on last week....yeah....well....that is over. I think I fell off it...maybe 1000 feet down. Since last Thursday, I have done horrible. HORRIBLE. It started with a birthday party, and every day since then has been some event. Between Memorial Day weekend, sleepovers with friends, and eating out, I have done nothing but eat like a pig for 8 days. I'm so ashamed. I haven't weighed myself, cause I know I'm probably up 5 or 6 pounds. I gain it so fast when I have a bad week, even if it is only 8 days. I NEED to start again today...it's just so hard "getting back into it" after a bad week.
I'm so sorry I let you all down.....
Monday, May 23, 2011
Well ladies, it is Monday, which means it's WI day for me! I weighed in this morning and I was 204! That is 2 pounds down from last Monday, for a total of 11 pounds! I can't tell you guys how happy I am! I feel like I am FINALLY in a good groove right now, and I feel like nothing can stop me! I am enjoying it while I can, because I know it's a matter of time before I go through a "valley" instead of being on the "mountaintop!" I think giving up sweets for the month has REALLY helped me! I feel like I have more points each day because I'm not wasting 8 of them on 1 brownie! I miss them, don't get me wrong...but I think it has really helped my weight loss. After the month is up, I'd like to maybe go to having them 1 day a week or something, instead of just diving back into sweets full force! I would love more than ANYTHING to lose 34 more pounds by November, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. If I lose a pound a week up until my vacation, I could be down 24 more pounds, so I decided I would be happy with that! :-) How did your past week go? I'd love to hear about it!
Monday, May 16, 2011
I don't have a lot of time, cause I'm headed to bed! My son has been waking up at 5:30am so by 8pm, I am shot! I just had to share my weekly weigh-in with you all. I weighed 206 this morning! That is 3.5 pounds down from last week, and a total of 9 pounds since I "started." I was so happy! I will post something more exciting tomorrow, along with my new favorite recipe!! Hope you all had a great day!
Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Monday, May 9, 2011
Hello dear followers! How was your Mother's Day? Mine went well...of course enjoyed some good food, and took a nap! Oh yeah, and scrubbed my bathroom, washed dishes, swept, gave kids baths, etc! ;-)
Today is Monday, so of course, time to weigh in. I weighed 209.5 this morning, which is one pound down from last week. I'll take it, honestly, after all the Chinese food I ate yesterday! One pound at a time....
One other thing I have to share....today I started my 4 weeks of no sweets! I decided that I needed to just take a few weeks, and get rid of all the chocolate and junk I love so much. Even though I count it in my points, I'm sure I could be making wiser choices. I know the first week is going to be torture....lol....if you look through any of my food logs each day, you will see that there is something chocolate AT LEAST once a day! We will see how it goes!
Hope you all had a great weekend! Now to go catch up on all of your blogs.... :-)
Tuesday, May 3, 2011
Had a good day today! I weighed myself today, and was down to 208. It's amazing how one day back on plan, can take off 2.5 pounds. Here is what I ate today:
Cheerios with strawberries - 5 PP
Cheese stick - 1 PP
Turkey sub from Subway - 10 PP
FF chips - 2 PP
Cheese stick - 1 PP
Salad with FF Ranch, cheese, garbanzo beans, and carrots - 6 PP
Smart Ones Dinner - 7 PP
100 Calorie pack - 3 PP
I'm down to 35 PP a day now, if you are doing the addition! :-) I'm off to watch Biggest Loser makeovers!!
Monday, May 2, 2011
Why do I not remember when I'm eating "bad" food, how bad I will feel about it later? Ugh...Thursday through Sunday were 4 bad days. I was very depressed when I weighed in today, and was 210.5. Even though I was sick last week, so "technically" I probably only gained 2 pounds, but the scale says I am up 4. Wow. We got our family pictures taken yesterday for our church directory, and it was such a wakeup call. I looked at them afterwards, and wanted to cry. There is no reason for me to be fat, besides me not having self control. Plain and simple. I need to just buckle down, grow up, and just lose this weight. I refuse to be fat when we take our family vacation to Florida in November. I don't want to look back at every picture with my kids at Disney World, and not see the fun times, but only see myself looking huge. I WILL feel better about myself 6 months from now. I need all of your help though to keep me on track. I am going to start doing the 30 day shred again tomorrow...I won't be able to do it every day, but I am going to try to do it as often as possible. I am done for tonight. Pray for me as I continue this long, long journey!
Saturday, April 30, 2011
Well, after not feeling that great for a few days, my appetite came back...oh did it ever come back! Thursday and Friday were NOT good days, eating wise. I was STARVING, and of course I happened to be places that had really "good" food. I just wish I could do perfect all the time, I really do. I would have been 40 pounds lighter, 3 months ago! As hard as it is for me to "do good" on the weekends, I NEED to get back on plan today! I can't let 2 more days go by with eating like this, or else I will MAJORLY regret it when I weigh in on Monday. Pray that I can just forget about the past two days and just move forward...will you? Have a great weekend!
Monday, April 25, 2011
How was everyone's Easter? Sorry I haven't posted in a few days...I've been pretty busy! I weighed myself this morning for my weekly weigh in and I was 206.5! That is 4.5 pounds since last Monday! NOW...the catch is, I haven't felt 100% the past few days, so I have been eating way less, and having some stomach issues, so I KNOW that contributed to such a loss! Nonetheless, I can't help but be happy about it! I'm not even going to post my food from today, because I didn't even eat close to my points for the day. I am feeling better today, but I want to give my body one more day before I go back to eating normal! :-) I must say that I was happy that this "sickness" came this weekend...I thought for sure I would do horrible with Easter....I made cheesy lasangna, bread, salad and we had lemon meringue pie! I only had a couple bites of dinner, one slice of bread, and no dessert! It worked out good! :-) :-) How did you all do with all the Easter temptations?
Wednesday, April 20, 2011
So, my husband asked me to make him brownies to bring to work this morning, and I made the mistake of taking a tiny lick of the batter....which turned into me licking the bowl afterwards! Obviously I didn't know how many PP it was, so I just guessed. Luckily my husband had to bring them to work, so I didn't get to eat any! :-)
Cheerios with banana - 5 PP
Brownie batter - 6 PP
Slice of Muenster cheese - 3 PP
Yogurt/Chocolate chips/strawberries - 6 PP
Velveeta Vegetable soup - 4 PP
10 crackers - 5 PP
3 mini Snickers - 4 PP
100 calorie pack of Oreo Thin Crisps - 3 PP
Hot Chocolate - 0 PP
So overall, even with my brownie batter situation, I think I did good. Even if I went over my points a little bit, there is always the flex points, so I am ok! I do want to save the majority of them for Easter Sunday though! :-) Hope you had a great day!
Tuesday, April 19, 2011
I will start off by posting my food diary for today!
Cheerios w/banana - 6 PP
Cheese stick - 1 PP
1/2 cup yogurt, 30 chocolate chips, strawberries - 4 PP ( more about this later )
30 chocolate chips - 2 PP
Smart Ones Macaroni and Cheese - 6 PP
Granola Bar - 2 PP
Slice of Cheese - 3 PP
3 crackers/2 slices of cheese - 3 PP
1/2 cup FF ice cream with 3 mini Snickers - 6 PP
I've been eating Smart Ones for dinner every night, if you haven't noticed! I have been working every day lately from 1pm to 7pm, so I've been having to bring frozen meals. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to be home and make something homemade for dinner.
Ok, so thanks to my life-long friend, Jenna, I tried the most amazing snack today! I chopped up a bunch of strawberries up, and mixed them in 1/2 cup of FF vanilla yogurt, and sprinkled 30 chocolate chips on it. I pretty much died and went to heaven. It was SO delicious, and healthy for a dessert! I'm thinking it's going to be a staple now in my house! Try it out and let me know what you think!
Off to watch Biggest Loser now! Goodnight!
Monday, April 18, 2011
Ok...so I came to some realizations today.
1.) I will not be able to keep doing my title's "Day 1, Day 2, etc". I know I will lose track, and have to look up where I left off, and what if I don't post a day? Do I skip a number? Bad idea.
2.) Taking pictures of everything I eat is just not going to happen. I have 3 kids under 5 and I am lucky that I get to look at the food myself before throwing it down my throat and moving on to doing something for the kids. Again, it was a great thought, but just not realistic.
3.) I am not going to be able to post on weekends. I will commit to posting M-F, but weekends are just crazy with my husband home, us running everywhere, etc. Plus, my husband works evenings M-F, so on Saturday and Sunday night, I don't want to be spending all this time on the computer when he is home.
So, with all that being said, lol, I am going to continue to post every weekday what I eat, and my weigh in each Monday. I love being accountable to you all! I hope this blog grows and I get many more followers so I have even more people to have to confess to! :-)
Today I weighed in, and was down 4 pounds! I debated telling everyone what I weighed, but I realized that it doesn't really matter. Last Monday I weighed in at 215 and this morning I was 211. I was pretty happy about it too, seeing that I always tend to eat more on the weekends! Yeah for me! :-)
Here is today's food log:
1 cup MultiGrain Cheerios with a banana - 5 PP
1 cheese stick - 1 PP
1 slice of Munster cheese - 3 PP
1 granola bar - 2 PP
2 slices of ham with 1 slice of Provolone cheese - 5 PP
44 pistachios - 5 PP
3 Fudge Stripes cookies - 4 PP
Smart Ones Alfredo with broccoli - 6 PP
Smart Ones ice cream sundae - 4 PP
That's about how it went! I'm exhausted tonight because my daughter was up last night sick, so I am headed to bed! "See" ya tomorrow!
Friday, April 15, 2011
Hey everyone! I hate to tell you, but I don't have pictures for today! I will still write everything that I ate!
Breakfast - Cheerios w/banana - 5 points plus
Lunch - Protein Bar, 1 slice Muenster cheese - 8 points plus
Snack - Banana with peanut butter - 2 points plus
Snack - Handful of animal crackers - 3 points plus
Snack - Apple - 0 points plus
Dinner - Chicken/Brown Rice/Cheese Wrap with Light Sour Cream/Salsa - 14 points plus
Snack - Little handful of Whoppers - 3 points plus
Sorry about all the estimations today...lol..."handfuls" of things. I didn't have my points calculator and I was gone all day. I think I did an ok job with it though. I'm just hoping that I can do good tomorrow and Sunday! Weekends are always really tough for me for some reason! How do you keep yourself on track during the weekends??
Funny story before I close...last night I had a dream that I ate a HUGE chocolate bunny! The whole time I was SO mad at myself that I was blowing my diet! I woke up and was so happy that it was just a dream and I didn't really consume all those calories! HA! I tell you...trying to lose weight consumes my life! :-)

Wednesday, April 13, 2011
Hello All! How was your day today? Well, I am 3 for 3 on Weight Watchers this week! GO ME!

I can't believe I actually ate those 8 POINTS PLUS cakes! I was SO hungry though, and it was the only thing to eat at work! I'm proud of myself for not just going off the wagon though...I ate them, but I did count them, even though I'm starving now! :-) Hope you all had a great day!

Hello to my 2 followers! ;-) I had a great weekend, with a lot, I mean A LOT of food, so I was very ready to start my "diet" today. I don't like calling it a "diet" only because I will probably be doing it the rest of my life! Here is what my day looked like:
Breakfast - 1 cup of Cheerios with lots of strawberries, and 1 cup milk
Lunch - 2 TB peanut butter and a banana on a wrap
Snack - Granola bar and Diet Coke
Snack - 49 pistachios :-)
Dinner - Turkey Subway sub and bag of Baked Lays
I have to tell you, even on Day One...I struggled! I woke up to leftover delicious chocolate cake from my birthday that was calling my name, my mom brought malted milk eggs into work ( my favorite ) and I had tons of my amazing alfredo left over that I would have GLADLY eaten! I stayed strong though! One day down....364 to go! LOL! See you tomorrow!

Alright, so I am turning 26 in 3 days, and have been really struggling to lose my "baby" weight from my 7 month old, so I decided to challenge myself and try something new! I decided that I would TRY my best, starting Monday, to post every day until I turn 27, and try to lose 40 pounds this next year. I really need encouragement and help....so feel free to follow my blog and leave comments, or suggestions! I will also be taking a picture of myself on the 11th of every month....but I won't post the first one until I have a better one to compare it to! LOL! Hopefully I can lose the 40 pounds BEFORE a year, but I don't want to set myself up for failure either! I am trying my hardest to follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program, just for reference sake! Well, I have a busy weekend, so I will be back on Monday!!
