WHERE have you been.....really?

Hey there. So it's been like for-absolutely-ever! So sorry. Last semester really took a lot out of me. Having to study ALL the time (and I'm not even joking) for Anatomy and Physiology AND Organic Chemistry. Two very huge classes that take a lot of time. And ADD a LOT of stress! So much in fact, that I gained 12 pounds! I know, I know...I'm freaking too. But I have a plan...

1) I will track my food (for the first time in a while)
2) I will stay within my WW points, only barely using my flex.
3) I will not eat ANYTHING after 7:30pm!! (my problem time)
4) I will exercise on a regular basis again.

See I have a plan. AND I went and bought 2 new bikinis from Victoria's Secret, so I have to be able to wear them, and the only way that'll happen is to lose this weight.

I also am wearing out the only pair of jeans in my closet that fit me. Ya know washing them every other day is putting a beating on them. But they're the only ones I can wear (out of the 9 pairs I have, I swear...crazier is they are all the same size...go figure).

AND, my sister's wedding is on May 2, and I ordered my dress a couple of weeks ago, and I must be able to wear it. AND look friggin' awesome in her pictures.

So you see, I have it all figured out. Now the quest will be to actually DO it!

Oh, and can I tell you that the woman at the WW counter on Thursdays is the biggest BIT** I have ever met in my whole life. How can you be so miserable at a place that requires motivating happy people! I cannot wait to get back to my Wednesday night classes. Damn Organic Chemistry is on wednesday nights, so I had to move to thursday.

Ok, well time to go grocery shopping. Later ya'll.

Not so bad

All that worrying about my week off actually was for nothing. I strayed from WW for my week of vaca and low and behold, I LOST a quarter of a pound! Ok, Ok, so it's not major, but the point here is that I didn't gain the 4 pounds I thought I did. So, woo hoo for me!!!

NOW! As for this week...Why is it that you (me) do nothing but eat and eat and feel like I am starving when my friend visits? Sorry to get so personal, probably a little TMI, but I really would like to know. I am absolutely famished this whole week, and have been eating everything in sight. So now, AGAIN, I fear the scale.

You know I am doing FABULOUSLY at this maintaining thing, although my goal is to lose more, and I am totally sucking at it. Am I obsessing? Should I just let it go, and rejoice an be happy with what I have done? Honestly, all I really want is to lose 3 more pounds! 3 more! That's it! Because that'll put me at 100 pounds even. THEN, I can say ok, I'm done, and rest easier. Is that too much too ask?

I don't know. I'm babbling trying to waste time at work so I can get the heck out of here and go home and eat something. :)

I will check in later, maybe post something if I find anything interesting to talk about. Talk to you then...

Sorry to be away so long. My hubby and I were on vacation, though we didn't exactly go anywhere, we didn't have to go to work. However, I took a break from WW for the week too, which isn't a great idea. Now I am absolutely positively sure I gained a few this week, and will have to work double hard this week to get back on track.

I need to find a way to curb my sugary cravings, though I am not sure how to do it. I've read somewhere before that by eating more fruits and such you eventually don't crave the packaged sugars (cupcakes, etc.), but I do, and I eat them. Obviously, not the large nasty high fat ones, but never the less I eat it. 1 point cupcakes and 1 point cookies, etc. But I think if I could figure out a way to stop craving these I could be in a better place. My weakness is like now, between 8 and 11 pm, I don't know how to stay out of the kitchen. Even if I do well most of the evening, I will end up there at some point and then I over do it while I am in there.

I've got a lot of work to do to get to my personal goal, and give myself a little bit of a cushion with WW. I believe I can, but sometimes I just don't seem to have the motivation to get there.

Any ideas???

BLAH! How do you stay away....

After last nights profound post, I wake up this morning in the worst mood. I'm tired, feeling sorry for myself and hating the world! What is that?

It's funny, Roni posted about having a fat day, and let me tell you that's how I feel today. FAT! Out of control and ruining myself. Wow, such the pity party, huh?

My question to Roni, and all of you...

How do you stay away from the snack cabinet, knowing you're already OVER your points for the day, your NOT hungry, but you must have those snacks because they taste SO good? Before you know it you've eaten 10 points in useless snacks!

That's how my week has been. Any ideas?

Ebay Junkie!

I think I've finally come to terms with acceptance, subconsciously. I keep telling myself that I need to work on this and work on that, I keep "trying " to lose more weight, and keep buying new exercise programs (I purchased the 10 minute Trainer after all). But more importantly I keep buying clothes!

I don't kno if it's the fact that I am completely addicted to ebay, or that I am subconsciously happy with myself exactly where I am. I recently bought 8 pairs of jeans! If I were to continue to lose weight or inches these jeans wouldn't fit me for much longer. HOWEVER, I have basically been this weight for nearly 10 months now, so I'm thinking that my subconscious knows more than I do.

As much as I would LOVE to firm up my belly area, I think I am happy! I get excited to get dressed, even just casual. Because for the first time in my life I look in the mirror and go "ooh, I look so cute in this!" Instead of "yeah, that'll do."

I went to the chiropractor today. My back and hip were killing me (can't stand for more than 15 minutes at a time). And he told me I hold all my stress in my back. My back is one big knot. He did some evaluations, and xrays, and I have to go back tomorrow to discuss treatment. I am also going to go to the massage therapist next week. I remember 2 years ago when I slipped my disc I went to both and felt great as long as I continued to exercise. Well I slipped my disc again last summer, and didn't do the chiro and MT, and now I am a big mess. So hopefully I feel better soon.

My new 10 minute trainer should be here in like 5 business days. SO excited! Can't wait to begin!

Food front hasn't been that great this week. I have been snacking uncontrollably! So I am afraid to see the scale tomorrow, but we'll see. Hopefully it's fixable. Wish me luck!

Alright enough for now, good night ya'll!

Has anyone tried 10 Minute Trainer?

I am looking to buy yet another exercise program. (I'm a sucker for infomercials ;) ) I'm looking at Tony horton's 10 minute trainer, but I'm finding it hard to find any reviews. I found some, but I usually like to look over quite a few before I invest THAT much money. Based on my experience with Jillian Michaels 30 day shred, I most positive that I will enjoy it and it will work.

Jillian's program does basically the same thing, very fast paced, simple exercises that kick your butt in a short time. Jillian's program is 20 minutes, and Tony's is 10 (or 20 or 30 your choice). So I really want to check it out.

All I really want to do is tone up, maybe lose a few inches in the belly area. Losing pounds is just icing. With Jillian's program I lost 2.5 inches the first week, so I'm hoping this program has the same concept.

Anyone out there have any info on this program?

How the hell?

That's all I can come up with. How the hell do you; not write anything down, eat as you please (in moderation of course), don't exercise, or even move for that matter, and still manage to lose 2 pounds? Not that I am complaining, but...

However, the 2 pounds I lost, were the 2 pounds that I gained the week before last.

But either way, I lost, that's the point here. So it's back on track tomorrow. Now I can't exercise this week, until I get my stitches out on Monday, but it'll all work out.
