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.

    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

    Great day! Hope you find a meeting you like. And maybe show up at the meeting more often than once a month ... might just help you to get things going in the right direction a little more easily.

    Wishing you the best. emoticon
