Why thank-you :) It definately came as a huge shock, but we’re VERY excited! It is going to make weight loss a lot more difficult. However, for my BMI I’m only supposed to gain about 10 pounds during pregnancy, and I’m going to talk to my doctor about continuing on weight watchers and continuing my workouts. :)
Apparently I’m not going to be hitting by UGW anytime soon. Why? I’m PREGNANT!
It came as quite a shock, but my man and I are quite excited about our son or daughter growing inside of me. I should have known something was up, I have been sleeping like crazy, really tired at workouts, and having really bad heartburn.
I have not eaten healthy today by any means. Days off are hard for me. But atleast I haven’t been a lazy-but either. Today I mowed the lawn front and back, and trimmed the hedge. After that I did all the laundry and cleaned the whole house.
Breakfast: WW Bread/ Cheese Wiz/ Crackers/ Cheese/ Water [7 points]
Lunch: WW Bread/ Cheese Wiz/ Special K Bar/ Beef Jerky/ Diet Dr. Pepper [8 points]
As did todays. :) I did order a MINI BLIZZARD at DQ today, but I’m going to count it in my WW points, and just munch less tonight. Pretty straight forward. I feel like I’m starting to plateau already, Ugh this scares me so much.
I WANT TO LOSE TWO POUNDS A WEEK. I’m just not trying hard enough.
Sorry everyone, I have been major slacking this week on my blog
Which also means I have been major slacking on my diet too. I ate MUCH better today, and am hitting up the gym tomorrow morning before work. I’m hoping to earn at least 5 weight watchers points while there, which would amount to 15 minutes on elliptical, 15 minutes on bike, and 10 minutes on the treadmill. I realize this isn’t much but it’s all I have time for before work.
Annnnnnnnd the verdict is… 279! I know I’ve still got a looooong way to go, but losing one pound is better than gaining! I’m very satisfied with this, however I reeeeeeaaaalllllly want to lose two pounds this upcoming week.
I also just wanted to thank everyone who has been providing me with amazing support through this. You know who you are. :) xox
It's not the mess ups that matter. They're going to happen regardless. It's the way you handle them that really counts. You could easily say "Screw it, I messed up today, why not do it again tomorrow?" But instead, you're going to take your mistake and turn it into motivation for tomorrow. And the next day, and the next. Falling off the horse is easy. Getting back on is the difficult part.
I believe in you :)
This is the nicest thing ever. Thank-you so much for your encouraging words! It makes me feel better, and even a little empowered. I mean this, you’re awesome. :) xo
I wouldn’t quite call it a binge, well maybe it was, I don’t know really. It’s been a long stressful work week, and my boyfriend and I were starving (hadn’t eaten supper because we had a bunch of stupid errands to run) so we got Chinese last night. LOTS of it. I had rice, chicken balls, sweet and sour pork, AND cashew stirfry. Talk about weight watchers points and CALORIES! UUUUUUGH! And to make everything worse, yesterday at work I had a chocolate bar and a can of coke.
If all that wasn’t bad enough, we went through the DQ Drive through before bed and got blizzards.
I know this was all because of that one “little” slip up at work with the coke and chocolate. I just want to let everyone on here know, that it is not worth it. I’m going to be lucky if I even stay the same weight for this week’s weigh in, all because I lived in the now. I need to start living for tomorrow.
Question! I am doing the weight watchers points too but do not really understand fully how to count points... for example if I have lettuce, tomato, peppers and dressing in a salad do I say 0 points for the veggies since all three individually are 0 or do i add all the calories up and say its 2 points since it adds up to about 100 calories all together? Hope to hear soon
Hi! For the new weight watchers (points plus program) ALL fruits and veggies are zero points regardless of the amount you eat. (this excludes corn and potatoes). But they do say if you find yourself eating a lot of fruits and veggies and start to plateau, to limit yourself to five cups a day. Hope this helps!
Regarding weighing in, I'd leave it for once a week. Your weight can fluctuate quite a lot day by day, and in the end, if you weigh in once a week instead of daily, the results will look bigger and make you more motivated. This is why I weigh in fortnightly.
that I stopped weighing myself every single day. All I’m doing is becoming unhealthily obsessed with my weight. It’s come to the point where it is every single time I enter the bathroom. Maybe every few days would be better? I “officially” weigh in every Sunday, should I leave it to just that?
Any suggestions/comments/advice are appreciated. Leave them in my ask.
I didn’t eat any junk (well, I had a diet pepsi, but besides that). For breakfast I ate a homemade western with one egg, on whole wheat weight watchers toast with spray margarine, and 250ml of pure apple juice (7 points total). During the day I munched on fresh fruit (a mixture of kiwi, cantaloupe, grapes, and watermelon) and fresh veggies (carrots, celery, and cucumber) dipped in low fat hummus. For lunch I had half a can of low fat reduced sodium chicken noodle soup, with 4 saltine crackers, and then I had a fat free pudding cup (6 points total).
Just now I ate one laughing cow cheese wedge with 13 multigrain wheat thins (3 points). I’m starving and needed something to hold me over until supper is done.
That leaves me with 29 points left for supper. I’m definitely making up for yesterday, since I had to dip into my allowance, which I never do.
~1 tbsp melted peanut butter (I can’t remember who, but someone on my dash suggested melting it to save calories. I LOVE YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE! That was an amazing idea, I used half the amount, and didn’t miss is.)
Lunch: (13 WW Points)
~Homemade pizza with green pepper, onion, tomato, and a little tiny bit of pepperoni and bacon.
Annnnnnd I’m down one pound. I was really hoping to be down two, but that’s okay with me. As long as I’m losing, I’m happy. I’m going to aim to lose 3 this week though, I really feel like I need to make up for it. :)
I unfollowed 80+ inactive weight loss blogs. I need more active blogs to follow. Whether you’re losing weight the healthy way or not. Whether you’re fitspo or thinspo. Whether you’re 200 pounds or 100 pounds. I want to follow you all. I will follow everyone who reblogs this post. Good luck to everyone!
