Having another average week.....

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Nothing profound, nothing too horrible is going on. Work is Work. I've been a little more hungry than usual. And I'm not sure attending Weight Watchers meetings is a good idea, since they seem to make me want to eat a lot more....a lot of talk about how good this xxx is and how delicious xxxxx is. Made me want to binge this week. But I'm haning in there.


I came across my fat pictures tonight….You know the ones….where you stood around in your skivvies and for some inexplicable reason allowed some friend to snap your pictures. Yes, I know, it was supposed to motivate me to lose weight. But I know for a fact, I gained more weight after those pictures. And now when I look at those pictures, it doesn’t look to me like I was that much heavier than I am now, but I was at least 20 pounds heavier. I sort of regret not having a picture of myself at my heaviest. It would be nice to actually SEE the difference....but I KNOW there IS a difference.

    Oh dear. That is dangerous if your Weight Watchers meetings make you want to binge. (good job NOT giving in to that) They talk about different foods at my meetings too....other w.w.s bring in wrappers from the latest wonderful processed food. Personally, I try not to eat such things (I'm very high and mighty on this subject) so it doesn't appeal to me. Once and a while my leader mentions something that is actually healthy for you.
My main reason in going is my leader is VERY funny. Kind of like picking up a MAD magazine! It brightens my day, and helps to keep me on the rather straight and narrow.
Recenty, someone at our meetings mentioned she was having a hard time finding 26 points to eat! (seriously???) Our leader looked at her for a moment, and said "maybe you can sell those points on Ebay."

    I love your blogs and I love the comments your friends leave. It's a double-whammy (that's a good thing).

    I went to WW a few years ago......see how well it worked for me...hahaha. Actually I quit because I couldn't see spending the money on accountability when I didn't like getting close to people in the first place. It just didn't work for me. So here I am at Sparks where I can "get close" to people but not get close. Make sense??
Nothing wrong with having an average week. It's better than a bad week or no week at all. Gives you something to look forward to next week.....maybe a good week or a better week or maybe even the BEST WEEK EVER!!! I have a little granddaughter that uses that expression about everything......each birthday, dance lesson, christmas,'s always THE BESTEST EVER!!!! Oh if we could all have that positive attitude in our daily lives. Why don't we anyway????]
Thanks for the's my favorite fruit!!! How did you know???
Have the BESTEST DAY EVER in your average week.

    WW meetings--oh my god! they made me eat too--it was the "rebel in me" that made me want to eat after those ie " NOBODY CAN TELL ME WHAT TO EAT OR NOT"
I remember once, sitting down to put my nylons on--and seeing this huge roll of fat on my thighs--I remember grabbing it and going I HATE YOU!! As I stood up to put my nylons on--my next thought was--I WILL BINGE was that moment that made me realize that I eat to make myself feel better--it was an AHA moment--how werid ids that!??like DUHHHHHHHH....
The important thing from what I get about your post--is that you are definately starting to recognize the connections between events/circumstances and the food.
Thats pretty big of a deal!
Have a great day!

    For the moment I have a hard time accepting my own image - I feel totally hopelessy ugly and if I would lose the weight there would be so much skin hanging around that also would be very unattractive. - but "fat pictures" does not help - they only make me feel selfhate and I don´t need that. I think I might surf aorung to find ĺictures of overweight people that I think looks nice and then maybe try to accept myself.

    I know what you mean...I waited until I lost 10 lbs before I took my before pics. It is a double edged sword. On one side you'd like to see the difference and on the other side you want to take lit matches to them. emoticon
