Weight watchers this afternoon and a special thank you message...

Friday, May 10, 2013

I skipped breakfast this morning in favor of sleeping in (I know not such a good idea). But, today was weigh in and I did not want to put anything on my stomach to mess up my weigh in. I went and lost again. Two tenths of a pound, which puts me at the very bottom of the low end of my weight range. Forgot to also get my silver 5k charm for walking in Relay for life last weekend. I will get that next month.

Anyway, was told this afternoon that I am at the absolute low end of my weight range as I am now at 121 pounds even.

I need to be at a weight of 132 pounds or I may be kicked out of weight watchers.

But also, all they keep telling me at my meeting center is to eat more, eat more, eat more.

I have told mom this today and she is sympathetic to the fact that I do need to eat more, but, she is also not really being a help to me right now in that regard.

What I mean by that is that in the past three months we have had fights over her eating habits due to the effects of the chemotherapy.

She stays nauseated and when she does eat she immediately pukes everything back up.

I went to pick up her anti nausea medication today at the drug store and she got mad at me because I paid for both of the medications that the drug store had on file for her.

One was five dollars and one was seven fifty. She said that the doctors said that she did not need the one for seven dollars and fifty cents at all.

Then if she does not need it as it is obviously not working for her...then why still ask the drug store to fill the prescription?.

That makes no sense.

This coming tuesday she has chemotherapy again as this is the start of the last of her chemotherapy sessions.

I will speak to her chemotherapy nurses about this drug myself this week and see why the oncologist is insisting on her not needing this drug.

Anyway, my many thank you's to MASTERCARE as today's meeting was on mindful eating and was a wake up call for me due to the fact that in the past ten days I have at night been consuming about four apples a day while on the computer at night and I must remedy that.

Also MASTERCARE I need your help in knowing what to start eating "safely" to put back on at least nine pounds?.

I was telling mom today that I have not had a cheeseburger in six plus years and then she mentioned milkshakes.

I do not want to regain the weight I have lost. Any other suggestions are welcome.

    So much to comment on here...

First of all...your mother. Please try to be patient with her Lance. SHe is not feeling well.....and may be testy...and you cannot blame her. She will eat what she wants....and when she wants...and still may be ill. This is normal.

As far as you are concern.....you say one thing and then say the exact opposite. You are not going to be kicked out of weight watchers...you will have to pay if you don't gain weight to be considered in the heatlhy range. Then you ask how to eat more..then later on..you said you don't want to gain anymore weight back.

As far as what to eat...that is your choice. You don't cook......so cannot even suggest using some of the recipes weight watchers suggests with the higher point values.

I would suggest you look at the message boards on weight watchers for ideas. So many threads...on what I ate today...etc...they may help you.

Many posters in the past on sparks suggested how to get more points in your day in your past blogs.

You have etools......you could even look there at recipes and meal ideas. The site is wonderful and you could see what you like. Plus...the previous wws materials from your meetings do have meal days in them.
