Ok, I admit it. Blogging is not my thing. I always have these great and grand intentions of posting, and then life with 3 kids just happens, and I push it to the back burner. I don't want to give huge promises of daily posts for the next year or anything like that, but I am going to give it a go to try to post as often as I can. Are you all ready for the story of my life lately, and then my new plan of action? Ok...here goes...
Since February, I've been trying the whole "counting calories" thing. I have to be honest...I did really like it, and I lost more on it then I ever did on the WW Points Plus program. But like anything, the "honeymoon" stage wore off, and I found myself not being faithful with counting. The pounds weren't coming back on, but just kind of staying where they were. 3 weeks ago, I found myself at 200 again, a place I did not want to be, so I decided to go off of white sugar and white flour...just for a time. I felt like I was at a point that I wasn't able to control myself around those things, and I needed a time to just get rid of them completely. The first 2 weeks, I lost 6.5 pounds! I was thrilled! The funny thing is, I wasn't even really counting calories, just eating healthier stuff. For some reason, this past week, while doing the same thing I was doing the 2 weeks prior, I gained 3 of those pounds back. I guess I was eating too much, even of healthy food.
I went to bed last night musing and contemplating on what I should do. Should I continue the no white flour/sugar, and just count all the calories? I knew no matter what that I would not go back to WW Points Plus program...it just doesn't work for me. I then realized that the time I lost the most weight, was when I did the Weight Watchers old plan ( flex? I think? ). I got down to within 2 pounds of my Healthy Weight...and then I got pregnant! :-) I almost got excited thinking of pulling out all the old recipes that I used to make before the new WW plan, and knowing all the Points values for them. I know you probably think I am all a nut job for always changing my mind, but right now I'm at the point that I need to find what is going to work best for me. I would like to try to have another baby in 3-4 months, so I really want to work hard and get down as much as I can before piling it on again. HA. I know some people would say, "Why bother? You are just going to gain weight pregnant anyway! Just wait till you have a baby then work on losing it!" Part of me agrees, but then I figure if I can lose even 15 pounds before getting pregnant, that is 15 less I will have to lose after the baby.
Well, there you have it. The story of my life. I don't know if anyone even reads this anymore, but regardless if anyone does, I still want to post daily for myself. I started today by taking pics of my food with my iphone, so hopefully that will make it easier to post each night. Let me know if you are still here, and willing to follow me ( yet again ) on this never ending journey!!
