Spring coming back in my step?

One, the scale was good this morning. 192.6 so only 1.8 to lose to get back to where I was pre-vacation. I think it is doable. Of course TOM will be here in a little over a week, but hopefully that won't derail my plans. It will arrive right in time for Christmas (how are we so close to Christmas already?!).

But the spring in my step also has to do with the fact that I devoted a large chunk of time yesterday to ready all the new Weight Watchers material and figuring out the new points for all my favorite foods.

I have never been one to track my dinners, which I know has been a downfall in the last year. So the changes in points for those items didn't really affect me that much. It is the point changes in my breakfast/lunch/2 snack meals that need to be played with. If I kept eating what I've been eating, I would only have 10 points left for dinner, when I really should have 13 according to WW (and seeing that dinner is the one meal I have issues with, I should have as many points as I can!)

Oh yeah, and I am loving the "free fruit" - My 21 month old son loves to tell me he wants a banana, then takes 2 bites and hands it to me. So now I no longer have to waste it. I can eat it and not feel guilty. Yeah!!!

So the plan is to eat well Monday - Wednesday and then evaluate where I am. I am scheduled to have Thursday and Friday off, which could be lunches and/or dinners out and then 3 holiday gatherings over the weekend! Yikes. I will admit, all of that makes me nervous even thinking about it. But I will visualize everything before I go and try to to de-rail myself completely.


  1. Don't you love how kids bite the fruit and then give it back? hehehe. Too bad I found of stash of half-eaten fruit and cheeses in her toy kitchen over. Ooops!

    Enjoy the fruit!

  2. Those holiday gatherings are touch, but you can do it. :) Something I still have to psyche myself up with is to think, "I want to be thin more than I want to eat that." It's hard when I'm in the moment of facing that yummy item.

    Have a great week!
