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???
