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!!!!

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.

Juice of the Day - Day 5

Today is Day 5.

Yesterday was difficult for me. I'd been invited to go to a nice restaurant for a birthday party with some co-workers, but since I'm juicing, I wouldn't be able to eat anything. This presented a real challenge.

All day I debated canceling, both because of the temptation to compromise and give in, and the misery of watching other people get to eat. Around the time I was supposed to be getting ready, I came across Dr. Oz's "Are You A Food Addict?" episode online. He asked five questions to help determine if you're addicted to food, one of which was "is food controlling your social life?"

This really took me by surprise. At that moment, I decided I was not going to let this overpower me. I ended up going and had a blast! I'm so glad that I chose to take control over my addiction.

Fortunately, today was a much better day for me. I felt good and full of energy. 

I tried this juice recipe today and it tasted great! It's light and re…
