Nibble: After lunch I gave the kids some mini peanut butter cups. I ended up eating a hand full of them and I was going to just pretend it did not happen but instead I portioned out what I ate and took a picture of it to keep track of it... I wish I had not of eaten it though once I found out how many calories it was. I think this was a step in the right direction.

I went to my weight watchers meeting tonight to weigh in. When your lifetime your suppose to weigh in once every calendar month... last month I never got around to it so I had to pay tonight. uhg! .... Also they closed down my meeting location so i had to go to a new meeting and it was completely different and just not very motivating for me. I am thinking about finding a meeting in my area that has the same leader I had before, because I really liked her. I felt really uninspired by the meeting and it sucks I had to pay but I am happy that I went. I have been really off track the last few months and am feeling really good about the last few days.
Luckily even though I had to pay I was not over my goal, even though it was a night weigh in and I usually weigh in the mornings. I was only at 160 and my WW goal is 162. That is a ray of sunshine I guess. Here are a few new pics I took of myself today
Im working really hard to get back into the habits I had before... like cooking only enough for everyone to have 1 serving of food at night instead of having extra to nibble on... I am tracking my food now.... I am drinking more water and I am slowly trying to get back into the habit of exercise. Its so easy to slip back into old habits. Its just easier to be fat and unhealthy. So I am putting forth some extra effort now and hopefully I will start feeling better as a result. Weeks of bad eating and no exercise have left me feeling blah.
Anyway... I hope everyone had a great day and I hope to continue to food blog for a while to keep myself on track, so I will see you tomorow.

Today I re-subscribed to Weight Watchers etools. I had gotten rid of it a few months ago because I just was not sticking to the new plan, so why waste the money. I have had a problem sticking with the new points plus plan the last few times I have tried it and I have decided to try it once again. This time I will not be nibbling though which has been my down fall the other two times. I know that its not weight watchers fault that I gained weight doing points plus, its my fault. I was not adjusting well to change and so I was self sabotaging myself and then blaming the new program.
I did incredibly well today. I planned out what I was going to eat and saw that it was a little too high for what my points allowed so I adjusted.
I pre-made food for the week on sunday and placed it all in individual portion sizes (glad wear containers) and put them in the fridge. I figured it would help me and hubby stay on track and maybe detour us from eating out, also saving us some money.
Alot of the dishes I made are pasta based, because it was cheap and easy. So my stuffed shells for lunch which was 6 jumbo shells stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta and spinach and then topped with a lean ground turkey pasta sauce was a little high for the new points plus system. Carbs make the count go up alot.
So I cut my portion from 6 shells, to 3 shells and paired it with a salad. That knocked my count down from like 13 points for lunch to 7 points..... and I was satisfied afterwards.
I really have had a hard time with portion sizes. Even now after losing all this weight I still have a problem. 6 shells seemed like a approprate serving size to me, but in reality 3 was all my body needed. Thats most likely the reason why I always feel stuffed too and have a hard time losing weight.
I still want to eat the amount I ate when i was much bigger... but I dont need that much now.
Its going to take alot of getting use to but I am determined to focus on my eating and really correct the problems that I am having.
1. portion size
These are my biggest issues and I have gotten by this whole time without addressing them because they never hindered my weight loss up until this point.
I had a good day though... drank all my water... ate right... the only down fall was I did not exercise at all. I will try and get into that habit again a little later. I want to get the eating well back on track first.
Breakfast: 1 cup honey nut shredded wheat, half a banana, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk - 6 points
Lunch: 3 stuffed shells, small salad with 1 tbls light ranch and 1 tbls shredded fat free cheese - 7 points
Snack: 1 medium peach - 0 points
Snack: 1/2 cup plain fat free greek yogurt & 1/2 cup thawed frozen blueberries - 1 point
Dinner: 1 serving Louisiana smothered chicken, 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup black eyed peas - 11 points
Snack: 1 cup sleepy time tea topped with whipped topping (sounds weird but I really wanted hot cocoa with whipped topping and did not have the points for the cocoa, lol it was actually pretty good) - 0 point
Snack: 5 tortilla chips topped with 1/4 cup fat free cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup black eyed peas, 1/4 sliced jalapeno pepper, 1 tbls fat free sour cream... baked in oven - 4 points
Total : 29 points
Target: 29 points
