Dirty Dogs, Errands and Fighting 9/28/07

So, this was not a typical Friday. There were errands, shopping at Walmart. Then, our dogs got their baths, which is a workout in itself. Imagine a wet 120 lb dog charging at you and the towel you are holding like a bull. All so she can get dry because she knows there is a treat waiting at the other end of all this!!! LOL :0 She is extremely well behaved the rest of the time. The other one, 70 lbs HATES baths, you would think she was a cat! So, then we went to IL's to drop something off and I thought I was waiting for DH to finish talking to his Dad and he was waiting for me to stop talking to his Mom. So, we ended up missing going to our fav mexican place (they close early, that is early for us 10pm) and fought about it all the way to Applebee's. And I was twice as upset because I had allotted my points for the day thinking we were going to the mex place. So, I did not have a lot of points and ended up just picking...was not really hungry after the fight anyway. Things are ok now...hope everyone else had a better Friday night!

Dr. Appt and Headache 9/27/07

Title pretty much says it all. Had a Dr. appt, he gave me a new med and when I went home and researched it...there was NO way I was going to take it! So, I had to go back and ask for a different one. It is for sleeping, which I have not been doing a lot of lately! I think I waited too long to eat since I was doing all this running around, so I got a whopper of a headache. GRRRR, pretty much laid me out for the rest of the night :( DH did his best to take care of me! But, he gave me a medication that made me dizzy, hence the snack to try and get better. At least the headache went away :0

A Good Day 9/26/07

Today was a good day...I think I actually see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! :) We should be coming into some $ and DH is back working his side job... I had a relaxing day of rest and catching up on the week of season premiers on tv this week! I also made a spectacular dinner - WW Skillet Shepherd Pie. It was awesome and very hardy for 7 points, I added one pt to the recipe for a little more meat. I also added more veggies and beef broth to bulk it up. Got more H20 to make up for yesterday and got some stair exercise :)

B-Day Was Interesting 9/25/07

First, we will start with my Barbie bitching...I went to WI at Publix, like I always do. So, I park right next to the building because I am just running in to use their scale. People park there all the time to just use the ATM there. So, I am walking in and this guy comes up behind me and says " oh, sure you just park right there". I turned around and said " I am just going in to weigh", thinking that would be the end. NO...he now says "well, if you would have parked, you could get some exercise and then you would not be so fat"!!! :0 I had already stopped at the scale and he was walking in. I never got a chance to say anything back, which would've been " at least I can lose weight, you will always be ugly" and it seemed like chasing him into the store to say it was not worth it. I mean really, who pissed in his corn flakes? The nerve of him and on my b-day. I was really down from it for a while, but DH made me feel better!

So did the fact that I lost 1/2 lb this week!!! :) I am now at 201 and have lost 25 lbs in 4 months! I did not reach my goal of 199 by my b-day, but I am damn close and happy with it. All my 14's are fitting really well and I feel better!!

For the b-day, I got my hair cut and then dyed it myself. Can't celebrate the 33rd b-day with gray hairs, right? LOL Then, I took a nap and watched some tv. We went to dinner at Outback with IL's and friends, Jon and Aaron. It was a blast. And I got some pretty cool gifts :) No cake though, unless you count the 100 cal Hostess cakes I had when we got home! Very low key, but that is exactly what I wanted. It was a great day!!! And I stayed within my limit of regular pts and FPs!

9/24/07 Day Before B-day

So, I got a lot of work done today... cleaning house, laundry, unpacking left over boxes from the move... broke a sweat and was up and down the stairs so much, I think it counts as a workout!!! Has been very hard to get back into the routine of exercise since my surgery...and I had such a good run of it before the surgery. I was very careful of my points today, still trying to save my FPs for tomorrow's celebration. I thought it was going to be an intimate dinner with DH, but he kinda invited his parents :0 So, now I am trying to make it a party and invite a few more people! We shall see what happens. I will weigh in the am and keep points low til the dinner...so glad a new week starts Wednesday!!! Got lots of H20 in today, I am pretty happy that the water is getting easier. I found that using a 32 oz cup makes it the easiest, at least for me! Hope everyone had a good Monday! :)

Weekend of Beef, Crab and Wine 9/22-9/23/07

So, the weekend was pretty good. We finally made it to the Prime Rib and Crab Leg Buffet Saturday night. More on that later... DH truck is still running, so while we are keeping our fingers and toes crossed, we are optimistic. And DH is slowly starting to get back to work!!! :) I did get lots of water in and walked on Saturday. Sunday is rained ALL day, was very depressing. But we stayed in bed and watched movies- we made it a good day! I had to use some of my FPs for the dinner Saturday, but I made sure to leave some for Tuesday. I raised my target on Saturday back to 26 but only ate 25 on Sunday. I needed that point Saturday and will need it on Tuesday as well! But even though I did not eat a lot, I still had tummy problems Saturday night and well into Sunday :(

A Day of Fast Food 9/21/07

Not a good food day, but I did pretty good with it. Only used 1 FP. Good news: DH finally got his truck back. Now we just have to see if it does not break down again :( Fingers and toes crossed!!! LOL Spent basically 10 hours in the car, so that is the reason for the title of this post. Things did not go as planned, so I did not have any of my food with me! We were only suppose to be gone for maybe 4 hours, but I kept my points in mind and I drank my water. So, we will see if it factors into WI on Tuesday. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

9/20/07 Typical Day

So, after yesterday, I needed to sleep in. Then, I worked on some stuff to try and help our situation. I am really worried about my DH, he is burning the candle at both ends and him and his Dad are not getting along right now... I am starting to wonder if we moved too soon. DH has to drive an hour and 1/2 instead of 25 mins and it is taking a toll on him. We also think he has sleep apnea so that is not helping. We could not get an appt w/ the Dr. til 10/11 so he is going to start staying at his aunt's 20-25 mins away from the station til then. That means 2 nights apart every 3 days for at least the next 2.5 weeks :0 And he will have to go on my bday :( But I am going to go with him, so we can at least have dinner together. Things are just bad and I am really looking for the light at the end of the tunnel... we need to find it soon!!! At least I am not stress eating...in fact I have had a tummy ache for 2 days (TOM is here, I think that is the reason). Hope everyone else is doing better than I am right now!

Start of Week 16 9/19/07

Well, it was easy to stay within 25 points today because I had an upset tummy pretty much ALL day! GRRRR We will have to see how it goes tomorrow, if the tummy is better. TOM is coming too in the next week, so I usually want to eat a horse...and I am really trying not to use any FPs until the Prime Rib n Crab Lag dinner Saturday and my bday is the last day of the week. :0 So, we shall see how it goes!!!

I found out after only having 4 hours of sleep (been having trouble sleeping these days, think it is the stress) that I was going to have to drive 1.5 hours to see my doctor and then drive back, to the pharmacy near home twice (Doc wrote one script wring, thank goodness DH was still down there doing other errands) and a trip to Walmart! Needless to say I was exhausted when the day was over!!! As I was coming back from Doc's and speeding up the Turnpike, I looked at the clock. 1:30 pm and I still had not had a bite to eat... good thing I had a 100 cal bag of Goldfish! You would've thought they were crack! LOL I could not grab just a few at a time, I was just pouring them down my throat :0 It was crazy!!!

Things are better now that I am home, but DH still does not have his truck, he is not working his side job and the in-laws are getting tired of bailing us out. So, I am still really stressed! I really hope things get better soon or we are going to be in real trouble :(

Very Good Day 9/17/07

So, from my last post, you can see I have been on cloud 9 all day! I had a good weigh in, my hour long massage and dinner with DH and my IL's at our favorite mexican place (I splurged since I have quite a few FPs left and new week starts Wednesday) and it is not even my b-day yet! After all the crap we have been going thru and now that I am thinking, still going thru, this was a REALLY good day!

So, 2 goals completed. :)

Goal 1- Find a diet I can work into my lifestyle and stick to it CHECK
Goal 2- Hit 10% loss before my b-day CHECK

Goal 3 was to see onederland by my b-day but it does not look like that is going to happen since it is in 7 days! But I am darn close, only 2.5 lbs! :) So, I'll take it.

Anyway, I am off to check up on everyone else, see how ya'll are doing! Hope you are having a GREAT day too!!!

I am sure from the smiley face, you can see it is good!!! I have not weighed for 2 weeks. I was afraid after the 9/4 debacle…but I lost 2.5 lbs!!! YIPEE I made 10% and passed it!!!! I was figuring it was going to show a gain, so I am on cloud 9 right now!!! So, 15 weeks and 24.5 GONE :) I got a massage afterwards, so I am considering that my reward!!!

I am going to go do a Barbie dance now hee-hee

Very Relaxing Day 9/16/07

It was the perfect day after all the chaos of the last few days. Stayed in, DH slept most of the day, I watched all my shows on my DVR! I have noticed that my shorts are getting too big to wear, which is nice. But I also think I am in between sizes so I'll have to hang out in them a little longer!

I am Back :) 9/12/07-9/15/07

OMG, all I can say is thank goodness we are home. I missed my kids (dogs), my computer and you guys, my normal routine and my DVR!!! I did manage to take food/wine with me to stay on track- or the best I could do with 2 hour notice that we were going to be gone for 2-3 days :0 It was not really a visit with DH's aunt, as she left Thursday morning to go out to Colorado. We got to visit for an hour Wednesday night and then we were just using her house as homebase for the next 2 1/2 days. The idea was that DH and I would go together and after his OT detail Thursday and regular 24 hr shift Friday, we would pick up his truck Saturday and then drive home together...Needless to say not all of that happen!!! The only good thing about this whole trip was DH and I got to eat dinner together Wed. and Thurs. nights (both at Chili's- it was the closest to her house). That was the only highlight!!! And we came home in the same car we got there in- no truck!!! GRRRRRRRR!!!! Oh, there was one more good thing- I was getting dressed yesterday (Saturday) and DH said he could see I was getting smaller :) YIPPEE- he finally noticed.

I was so happy to get home today, so were our puppies! Back to normal routine, dinner at IL's :)

Will Miss You Guys

No, I am not leaving for long...just a few days. We are staying down at my DH's aunt's house and I do not want to use her computer for long. I should be back tomorrow or Saturday at the latest. Did pretty well yesterday until dinner..went to Chili's. Do not have my books (I forgot them, duh) but will look on Dottie's site or tally points when I get home. Brought a bunch of stuff with me, food wise since I am on my own for breakfast and lunches, maybe even dinner tomorrow night. If that is the case, I will run to the store and get a WW frozen dinner. Hope everyone is doing well! And I am really looking forward to getting back home, in my normal routine!

9/11/07 NSV

So, today was a good day. Did a lot of housework, broke a sweat and ate good foods. As for the NSV, I ended the week and still had 9 FPs left!!! That is the most I have ever had left at the end of the week in all 14 weeks. I think I am getting ready to drop down to 24 pts since I know onederland is right around the corner ;) But I did it without even trying...I think I am starting to really listen to my body and when I am hungry. So, I guess that is really 2 NSVs!!!

DH still does not have truck...really hope this all gets resolved soon!!!

The Good and Bad of Weekend 9/7-9/9/07

Today was a weird day. Was feeling MUCH better from yesterday... but was not prepared to go to the car/truck show 2 hours away. I figured since DH still did not have his truck and just got off shift this morning that we would not go. But we did and in the rain no less!!! I ate just a pc. of cheese this morning because DH had said the guys were going to be bbq'ing. So, I figured I would just eat when we got there. On the way, I was REALLY hungry so I ate the 100 cal bag of Cheez-its I brought with me. So, we get there and since it was raining- no bbq. All that was there were vendors selling no-nos like pizza, burgers and funnel cakes :0

So I held off ALL day. All I had was 1/2 DH beer. And then we got home so late, that we ate at Wendy's. I mean, I had the points and probably could have gotten something better but after smelling them all day, I really wanted a burger! Oh, and I did not drink all my water for the day :( Only thing I can say is I survived, did not cave and tomorrow is another day!!!

Pretty Relaxing Day 9/6/07

DH was home most of the day, so we spent some time together and had dinner at the IL's (again)! I forgot to tell you about my NSV. Wednesday I had to dress up and when I out my black pants on, they were too big! YIPPEE So, I went a step further and tried on the long sleeve button down shirt that I was wearing with them. And it was too big too! WOO HOO So, I am down a size in both pants/skirts and shirts!!! I was SO happy...and I know you are all still waiting for the good news, but I want to wait for final confimation before I say anything! Sorry to keep you in suspense!

So, as I said, dinner at the IL's again. I tried to call them to see what we were having but their phone was busy the whole time and both their cells were going straight to voice mail... they did not know their phone was off the hook. So, I brought my whole WW book so I could count points. But they were having spaghetti w/ sausage and meatballs. I could've eaten the spaghetti just with sauce but did not feel like it. I saw they had leftovers from last night's dinner, so I just had that. It was still just as yummy as when I had it the night before!!!

Today is Better 9/5/07

So, here is the short version out the day yesterday... DH got in an accident around 8/7/07. It was in the shop being repaired for 3 weeks. He finally got it back last Friday and then it died on Saturday~1 day after he got it back! So, sparing you many of the details, we had it towed to Miami to my DH mechanic yesterday. I did not sleep well the night before. Then we were up early to get it there so the mechanic could see what was wrong with it. So, we get there at 10:30 and DH asked me to wait to see if we needed to go get a part... By 1:00, I had not eaten and told DH that I was going to go to Publix to go to the restroom (imagine a body shop bathroom where only men work- they only had paper towels~need I say more!) and to get something to eat. I was doing really well, staying hydrated and for lunch, I had brought a 100 cal bag of Doritos and drove thru and got a KFC snacker. No problem, 7 points. Got back to the shop and now we were on our way to pick up a part for the fuel system, that was the problem! We dash over there, get the part, bring it back and they put it in. Does it work now??? NO!!!! So, after some more looking around, they realize there is also a oil system problem. It is 3:30 by now :0 I am tired, cranky and just want to go home. We have one more errand to run GRRRR So, it is now 4:30 and we still have a 2 hour drive home. By this time, I was stressed, beyond tired and that is when the "fat" me came out. We stopped for gas and she went crazy! Munchos and Raisinets were the choice of the day!!! Might not have been bad, I counted 12 points... but then we got home and had 15 mins to get ready to have dinner at IL's with more family visiting and friends! So, needless to say, I said screw it and drank a lot and ate a lot!!! So, the day was blown and it was the 1st day to my week. Can you believe that is the short version??? :0 If you only knew...

I have decided to start week 14 today and forget about yesterday completely. Might not be the best choice in WW terms, but I am ok with it. I am just glad I am still alive to tell you about it all!

Today was a much better day and I still have the good news to tell you, but am waiting for confirmation before I say anything (and no, it is not a baby!). And because of my over-eating yesterday, I did not eat anything til 4:45 :0

Bad Day and I am Skipping It 9/4/07

This will be short. REALLY REALLY bad day, will explain in next post. Let's just say it was stressful to the brink of insanity and the "real" me left and "fat" me showed up!!! You know the one, does not care what she eats or drinks... Basically, I am starting week 14 today. I am going to pretend like yesterday never happened! Oh, if only that were true :( There is 1 itty bitty good piece of news I got yesterday amoungst all the bad, but will let you know what it is after it develops!

Hope everyone is having a GREAT day! Be back later...

WI 9/3/07

Very quick, got a busy day... I weighed in and lost another lb... YIPEE WOO HOO
So 13 weeks- 22 lbs. .6 lb away from 10% I wanted to hit that by my b-day, just over 3 weeks from now so looks like I will complete that goal early! Changed my next goal and I want to see onederland by my b-day... so that'll be another 5 lbs! We shall see...

Happy Labor Day!!! ((hugs))

Back again...not a day I expected, but one none the less...DH truck is still having problems, related or not to the accident, we are not sure... got mild case of heat stroke while trying to help DH. Have to have the truck towed to a Guy DH trusts 120 miles away :0 Anyway, no dinner at IL's....that will be tomorrow when more family is in town and friends back in town are coming! We were so tired that we ended up at Wendy's for dinner... not the best choice, but I still had 24 FPs left for the week!

9/02/07 Melancholy Day

So, today Dh was at the station. I was all by myself. Talked to my sister, which was nice since she is so busy saving the world! I was a big bum, just hung out and watched movies/tv. Not much to report... I did like that I planned out my entire day of points this morning, so there was no thinking involved! Just ate what I had planned, dipped into FPs but not too hard. Still have a lot for the holiday tomorrow, whatever it should bring!

Where Has the Year Gone? 9/1/07

DH was up early again this morning! I don't mind getting up with him and helping get him out the door, but I usually cannot go back to sleep for the next hour or two. Which at 4:30 AM can be a PIA. Thank goodness I do not work right now!!! But I feel like a bum, sleeping in like I do! But then, I have ALWAYS loved my sleep ;) If I do not get at least 8 hours, I am useless! Did more housework and broke a sweat, which is not hard to do considering where we are, but was good to get some stuff done and not be in bed all day! Visited with the IL's tonight for a little while, which was nice! Then, we decided to eat at home and just lay low. DH has to go back to station in the AM, so up again at 4:30. At least he will be home for Labor Day! It'll be nice to spend the day together :) And I still have 30 FP left so far, so it looks like I may be able to have a small splurge on the holiday. Which is great, since MIL is such a GREAT cook!!!
