Weight Watchers

I decided to join weight watchers a week and half ago. So far I have done very well with this.
First week weight in 4.8 lbs lost. (Not bad) but only exercised once.
However this week, I am struggling a little.
I seem to be going back to that old habit of mine, boredom eating. As I have not (to this date) “cheated” but the urge is SO strong.

I decided to start blogging about the success in this weight loss because of this reason. I feel if I fill my life with talking and writing about my weight loss and things I want to accomplish, it will keep my mind motivated and on task. (Right? Or am I just kidding myself?)

Last night I had an epiphany though. I was able to for the first time in a week (I really mean two years and a week) to fit into a pair of jeans! Not a different size, but a different pair that was too small!!!! I was so excited about this! I couldn’t believe that in a week I had done just that little task. I felt very powerful and in control of my life, but that soon faded into boredom the next day. I don’t know why this happens to me. Do I really need to bring the clothes that I can’t fit into every where I go? Why is this so hard?
Frustration is how I feel.
My frustration for today is going to the gym. I know I need to go the gym, I know I should, but I really don’t want to.
Maybe it’s a little laziness right now that I feel.

Today: I will go to the gym! I will get into my car and go to the gym.
My workout goal: to walk 2 miles.

  1. You go, girl!

    It's hard to be perfect, but when you can say "yes, I had a weight-loss day", it feels so much better. As you saw with your jeans (yay!), every little bit counts.

    BTW, I find tea can be a substitute for boredom eating.

    Good luck!!!!

Bad Vacation?

I wouldn't say that the vacation that Ron and I just took was bad, but unlucky. We spent a wonderful time together and that's what counts. In the end, that's what we loved about it, that we were together. The "unluckiness" of the trip really started Tuesday morning with me, then I think just followed us to Toledo. While working, I proceeded to hit myself and run into many things, which produced about three more bruises and one on my head. After leaving work, I ran errands and proceeded to fall on the way into one store. Now the definition of "fall" can be interpreted so many ways. This was me missing a step and then flying forward on my knee and hands. Sun glasses, wallet, and keys go forward flying. Now usually I get up quickly in embarrassment, but this time I was in so much pain, I don't think I stood for a good 45 seconds to a minute. Then the knee pain proceeded to consume me for the next couple hours. All I could think about was the pain that …

What's in my Purse? - Video

Hi Friends!

I just posted my first video on YouTube! I am so excited! I have watched YouTube videos for years and have always wanted to make my own. I finally got the courage to create one!

I really enjoy watching "What's in My Purse?" videos, so I thought this was fitting for my first.

Please visit my YouTube channel Lindsey Says Stuff, subscribe, and like the video!

My Soldier. My Brother.

What can I say? My Brother has been a Soldier in the U.S. Army for a little more than 72 hours and there are so many things I am feeling, Proud, Excited, Sad, Love. Sad only because the fact that my baby brother has now become a man. All these feelings and more keep coming up. They come up because of the love I have for him. The great boy that I know now from the cute little boy with freckles from the top of his red curly hair to the bottom of his toes has in just a day become a man. I have the up-most respect for the decision that he has made to enter the Army. What an honor and privilege. My brother was very excited about going, ecstatic in-fact. I pray for him everyday and hope that God will give him the guidance and support he needs. I love my brother so much and to actually say that he is serving his country is so majestic to me, so noble. I am very proud of my brother. I only wish my brother the nest and hope he always remembers that God loves him and his family loves…
