STOP challenge for this weekend!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Monday through Friday --- piece of cake! (not literally, mind you!)

Friday night --- Saturday --- Sunday ------- well ------ that's another story!!!

I'm doing very well on my weight loss journey --- but lately, I've found the weekends becoming difficult for me to stay on program. Up until the summer, I did fine on the weekends --- but now that I'm off for the summer, I'm finding that I'm wanting to go "off" my finely tuned weight loss program! The biggest reason is that I'm around others who can eat, love to eat, or just eat to eat ----- and they don't gain weight when they do! I, on the other hand, can become a big ballooned elephant in a matter of hours!!!



Well this weekend is going to be different! I'm on the Weight Watcher Team and we are having a mini challenge for this weekend --- it's designed to help us STOP messing around with our weight loss program just because its the weekend --- thought I would share the info and invite anyone on spark to join us! Here are the details:

Need help staying STRONG and ON PROGRAM over the weekend??? Do you find your weekends sometimes becoming WEAKends??? I know I do -- and in the summer it's even harder for me!

This mini challenge is to help us make ourselves STOP!!!!!

S tay
T otally
O n
P rogram

that's it STAY TOTALLY ON PROGRAM!!! S.T.O.P.!!!! for the next couple of days -- Friday night through Sunday bedtime --- we will S.T.O.P. ---- easy peasy (hold the full fat cheesey!!) --- no excuses --- no weaknesses --- no hit & miss --- no forgetting to plan ahead --- no trashing the tracker --- no sneaking --- no cheating --- no nothing that will keep us from having a successful weekend!!! We will just say NO!!! to anything that will throw us off track and say YES!!! to making good healthy choices and STAYING TOTALLY ON PROGRAM!!!

So -- who's in?? who needs to STOP??? who could use some extra support and strength from the WW Team???

here's what you need to do:

**post a comment right here on my blog saying that you're going to STOP this weekend

**make yourself some sticky notes that have the word STOP written on them in big letters - preferably in red ink!! and place them around your living spaces so you SEE them!

**then just DO IT!!!!



************************
won't you join me???? We CAN do this --- we can STOP!!!!

a Super Sunday Surprise for me!

Sunday, April 27, 2014

I had a very nice surprise just now as I was getting ready to call it a night ----- I took my pedometer out of my pocket and I had reached an all time HIGH total for steps today!!!! I was 1500 steps over where I usually would be for a Sunday (the day of rest, you know!!) I was totally amazed b/c I really didn't do anything on purpose to increase my number - it just happened! Which means that I'm getting more active w/o even thinking about it --- and that, my dear friends, just MAKES MY DAY!!! So excited about this --- I have suffered with bursitis in both Achilles Tendons for several years now and had pretty much given up on the idea of ever getting more active w/o a huge effort on my part and/or some added pain --- so this was such a nice surprise to see that larger number. It feels so good to see success in areas other than the scale -- although I sure am enjoying seeing those LOWER numbers there! Funny how some numbers are exciting LOWER while other numbers are exciting HIGHER!!!! This weight loss journey is just one interesting trip!

Woohoo Weekend mini challenge!

Friday, March 21, 2014





Just joined the WW Team's mini challenge for the weekend. This mini challenge is designed to make us strong and accountable for the weekend --- those weekends can so quickly and easily become WEAKends if I'm not careful!

I don't know why, but my brain allows me to think up all kinds of excuses for why the weekends should have more food than the weekdays! There are still 24 hours in each day - no matter what DAY it is! I have the same body, brain, organs, etc. on the weekends as I have during the weekdays --- why oh why does it seem that I want to eat more or eat differently on the weekends????? That's just like double dumb to even think that weigh! I just don't get it! but I do it! I really do! I sometimes change my thinking just b/c a day is called FRIday, SATurday or SUNday! like I said --- double dumb!

So -- this weekend will be a strong one --- this one will be tracked to a "T" --- this one will be a "write BEFORE I bite" weekend --- no excuses -- no complaining -- no reason to NOT make this weekend just like any successful weekday in every weigh ---- that's what I'm gonna do! how about you????

    For me, it's not weekends that are the problem, it's excuses, and they can happen any time... Monday to Friday, oh I'm not going to do the cleaning tonight - I've been working all day, Sat to Sun, oh I'm not going to do the cleaning - it's my day off.... excuses...

Hope you're weekend is 10/10

Downsized --- but it's a good thing!!

Thursday, March 06, 2014

I had a very fun thing happen yesterday ---- I hit one of those milestone moments in my weight loss journey ---- I had to buy new underwear!!!! and that made me happy!!! I held on for as long as I could - but my undies were not hanging on well at all ----- it was time to DOWNsize and DOWNsize I did!!! I now have a pretty, brightly colored drawer full of fresh, brand spanking new (and smaller!!) underwear!!! Life is good!!!!

    Woohoo! How awesome is that! :-)

I noticed bras always seem hard to find in colours.

Looking forward to more choice - not too long to wait now.

    Thank you for the chuckle. And what a great feeling. If it was me I would be going in and out all day long just to have a look at my new wardrobe that few others would ever see.
