Future MILF Weigh-In

I have skipped the last two weeks, but I don't want to be removed from the Future MILF list, so I am going to log on today and tell you what I have been up to.

I didn't renew my Weight Watchers membership because right now, $40 a month is a bit much for us. Besides, we joined the YMCA (for less than the WW membership!!) and they have the Commit To Be Fit program, which includeds weekly weigh-ins and meetings, and it doesn't cost anything additional. I am going to start hitting that next week.

At my last WW meeting on Feb 13, I had lost .4 lbs (note: that is NOT 4 lbs. but .4) in two weeks. Not very encouraging, but I know, I know, at least I didn't gain.

I am not sure what is wrong with me. I start a weight-loss program and start seeing results, and then a few weeks in, I totally lose my motivation. I know if I count my points, I can do this. I just get so resentful that I can't eat whatever I want (like heading to the Chinese restaurant for lunch with friends).

The numbers on the home scale are moving back up. WHAT?? Maybe I'm not working out enough? I do a 45-minute Step class twice a week, Body Pump once a week (should do that more often), and usually something else in there. On Monday, I was trained on the circuit at the YMCA, but haven't gone back to do it since. Perhaps I should just start getting up early in the mornings to go. I do it once per week for Body Pump. Miss Silly did not like Kid Care when I put her in it (threw up on herself after 10 minutes of screaming), so I am not sure working out during the day is an option for me. I run out the door after The Walrus gets home so I can get to my Step class...

Excuses, excuses. I just need to make a schedule and stick to it. I LIKE working out now, and I WANT to go... I just have to work it out so that there is a SET time Mama goes to the Y and that's it. Some nights, the kids and The Walrus go with me and swim. Just have to make that a priority.

So, it looks like, according to the home scale, I might be up 3 lbs.

Future MILFs Weigh-In

As of Tuesday I had lost another 1.6 pounds at Weight Watchers. That brings my grand total to 5.4 lbs in two weeks. I've also lost a point, bringing me down to 29. I guess that's good, right?

My home scale showed I was down another 2 lbs from last week Friday. So, right now there is a 4 lb difference between WW scale and the home scale.

Hubby and I did a little splurge last night. See, I had kind of been masochistic all day, eating one point here, one point there, I think just to see if I could do it. By dinner time I had 20 points left. We decided to do our Papa Murphy's pizza (18 points) and I was really in the mood for Doritos(9 points for one of those $0.99 bags). And Hostess cupcakes (8 points for 2 cupcakes). That's a 35-37 point dinner. Holy Shit!!! When you say it like that, wow! So I used 16 flex points (now, I tend to horde my flex points like they are pieces of Godiva chocolate. Mine mine mine!), which seems like a lot. ONE meal being 37 points?? That's insane.

And the truth is, my tummy hurt after that meal. And I ate beyond being full - I got full much sooner. So there is a small victory.

I know I shouldn't try to limit my points so much during the day, but I am going to be away most of the day and a friend is coming over tonight so I am going to try to save them for if we go out and consume some beverages. I also have a Passion Party so wish me luck with that.

By the way, if you would be so kind, please check out my new blog. It's just for fun and to spark conversation, but I would love to have you join me if you're interested. It's called Desert Island and I think some of you might enjoy it.

Cheers!
