As predicted, no losses this morning but I’m very happy no gains either. Dinner at IL’s should be tricky as well for today. Not sure what to expect. It’s amazing how disheartening to see no loss even when you’re expecting that.

Today unfolded exactly as planned..slept until 9:30, cleaned until 12, gym for an hour, clean a little more and then shower. Kids showed up and we went shopping for my dad’s birthday present. Then off to Texas Roadhouse for yummy food and then Mom’s for birthday cake, which I will repeat myself and say I had none of. She made her white cake/white icing which was so not worth. If it had been her chocolate cake, chocolate icing, I would have used all 35 flex points just to eat a piece.
if I can go to Texas Roadhouse eat peanuts, bread, blomming onion, salad with ranch dressing, filet and fries and still manage a loss in the morning. Ha! Take that one, Weight Watchers.
Ok, really, I had limited portions of all that, I skipped on the birthday cake tonight for my dad’s birthday and I think I only had to use a couple points of my weekly flex points. But still, this diet rocks of I lose tomorrow.
Another pound down this morning. I’m honestly shocked. Yesterday I stayed within my points but I totally felt like I cheated. This is what I ate yesterday:
Sugar-free Carnation Instant Breakfast (thought I was going to have to give this up but found a sugar-free variety and used skim milk and it’s only 1 little point)
shrimp, corn and a salad with vidalia onion dressing
grapes for snack
A chicken soft taco with pinto beans on it from Moe’s plus a few chips and salsa. Turns out this is only 4 points. Yay!
Topped off the evening with a Starbuck’s white mocha (non-fat, decaf, no whip). Totally felt like I was cheating on this one especially when I drank it so late at night.
I had prepared myself for no loss this morning and thought how could I get another pound off for three days in a row? But sure enough a whole pound. I literally can only do this for a few more days if I keep going down in pounds like this. I’m just shocked it was this easy. I get to eat Moe’s and Starbuck’s and still lose weight!
Well, it’s shaping up to be a good Friday night/Saturday morning for me. Went swimming with the girls this afternoon after signing off work a little early. When Scott got home, we went to Moe’s where I ate a taco sans the queso and root beer and it was only 4 points. MIL called and had the kids come over to spend the night. Scott and I went and rented Apocolypto and stopped and got Starbuck’s on the way home. Since I did so well at lunch and dinner, I had 8 points left. I think after I finish my white mocha, I still have 2.5 points left but I always like to have a few points left just in case I calculated something wrong.
Tomorrow morning I plan on waking up late, giving my house a thorough cleaning and depending when the kids come home, going to the gym. Yipee!
Another pound down this morning…wow!! Put a huge smile on my face. I don’t remember the last time I was excited to wake up and step on the scale in the morning.
Tonight was very busy. Scott’s family came over for cookout/pool party for SIL and nephew’s birthdays this week. At 8:30 J and a graduated youth group member picked me up and we headed to see License to Wed. I’ve been wanting to see that since it came cause “I love Jim”. It was a really funny, cute movie. Not sure it is a must for the theaters, but definitely worth checking out.
Before I fall in bed…one note about Day 2 of the “i’m not really on weight watchers” day. I worked out so I got 3 extra points today but I don’t think I used them. Here’s what I had:
coffee (with splenda this time)
slice of 2% cheese
caesar chicken salad from Wendy’s (uh, big no-no apparently. the dressing was 14!! points..i only ate about 3/4 of the salad though)
Literally 5 grapes for snack
Shrimp and corn for dinner
Handful of grapes for snack tonight
And all water to drink..I even got water at Wendy’s. Wow. I better be down another pound tomorrow, I even skipped on the birthday cake.
