Shredded wheat & unsweetened almond milk

Lunch: 275
Turkey Sandwich w/ garlic hummus
Large apple

Hibatchi grill chinese buffet

Wonton soup - 1 wonton

Hibatchi noodles and veggies with shrimp - cooked w/ no oil

Sushi - 8 peices (did not eat one that is pictured)

1 fried dumpling, 3 cheese wontons, 2 peices sesame chicken,
~ decided to try a craw fish... put it on my plate but my daughter would not let me eat it because she thought it was mr. krabs from Spongebob Squarepants.

target calories: 1400 - 1700
calories eaten: 1533

Exercise: 45 minutes elliptical

Notes: Dinner was not the best but it could have been much worse. I feel its a victory when i can go to a buffet and not feel like a bloated whale as I walk back to the car. I plan on having many many more vegetables in my day tomorow.

GOAL - stop eating after dinner is over. I usually have a snack around 9pm and it worked out for a while, but lately I have been over doing by munching on everything. I figure it will be good for me to cut out the late night snacking for now and just try to cook dinner a little later than normal so Im not super hungry.

GOAl - work out first thing in the morning so I dont have enough time to talk myself out of it.

    Love it yet again Jess. The no nightime eating has been on my goals page and that is my toughest time. IT is like as soon as I sit to relax I want to eat. I need to work on this more. I"m going to start a streak of exercsie. Maybe if i'm moving I won't be eating. lol.

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.

    You look fantastic! Sorry to hear your WW morning meeting ended. It can be hard to find a new meeting and leader you like. I have been there and done that, which is why I am with Spark. Good luck in your search for a new meeting and keep up with the great work. emoticon

    I actually applied a few months ago to work for weight watchers but never herd anything back.


I am counting calories now instead of points. i have switched back and forth throughout my journey and its worked pretty well for me.

    Since you are at lifetime, have you considered being a motivation to other WW'ers? Become a Meeting Leader yourself! emoticon Then you can motivate and encourage the way you think a meeting should be! (its my goal, since we are losing our awesome leader to someone else in an area too far away from me too!)

BTW, WOOHOO on being lifetime! LOVE your photo blog! You are gorgeous! emoticon
