I intend to use this blog to get feelings, frustrations, excitement and any thoughts of getting back to my goal(ok and maybe other thoughts not related to weight loss?). Feel free to comment as you see fit.

April 14th weigh in..

After working my tail off this week, I was expecting big numbers on the scale but much to my surprise I was only down .4.  I know, I have said it time and time again to friends, a loss is a loss..at least the scale is not going up.  All the "point" something weigh in's will add up.  I am happy with it!  The week brought some challenges for me.  I was faced with take out from one of my favorite restaurants for dinner one evening.  I passed it up and decided to go with a healthier option and I am glad that I did. As a Weight Watcher I have learned  that sometimes I am going to be faced with temptations and will need to decide if I want to give in or pass it up.  Basically it comes down to me asking myself "will it be worth it" in the long run, or "how hard will I have to work to get it off?"  Yes, I do give in,  we all do, we are human, but just staring back at it, I decided to stay on the staight path to seccess for the week, or better yet the day!  I was asked to join a 52 week challenge.  The challenge is called "Mom is Missing."  Mom is missing from all the pics and needs to be found!  So, I will post a pic of myself every Thursday and stop hiding behind the camera.  This will be a challenge for me as I DO NOT LIKE my pic taken, so yes, "Mom is Missing." 
So this weekend will bring many challenges for me as our schedule will be out ot the ordinary.  My daughter and I are heading to Birch Run for some quality time of shopping.  I am going to be a good WW and stay on the right path..at least I have every intention to do so!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, I will post after the weekend to tell you all how I survived!

Good for you! A loss is a loss, no matter how big or small! All I did this week was maintain...but I'm okay with that. It's been a very stressful week emotionally and the fact that I didn't gain 2 pounds from running to food for comfort is a success for me!

I love the pic! I'm missing most of the time too. It's just so hard to see myself so big, and a pictures forever! But one day, I'll look at it, and say "there's fat mommy...but look, here's skinny mommy!"

I pray you will be successful next week, even with your busy plans!

So, are you telling me there will be no Tony's involved in this road trip? How about that BLT with a pound of bacon on it? Is that in the WW program? Okay, I didn't think so...You go girl; keep up the good work!

Thanks Amy!

Kristi, keep up the hard work. We both know it pays off. Determination•is the quality of being determined to do or achieve something; firmness of purpose...if we have determination, we can be seccessful. If you join the "Mom is Missing" challenge you can see yourself transform before your eyes. Hang in there, we will do this together. Heres to a skinny week!

Ummm..NO Judy there will be NO Tony's for me this time around but how I wish it was in the WW plan or even the pound of bacon on the BLT...yummo! NOT! "Once on the hips, forever on the hips!"
