Not in the best mood tonight, but trying my best. I said something about really hoping I lose weight at my weigh-in tomorrow morning while I was making my dinner (around 10:30pm), and my darling mother told me to "stop eating at 2am", then told me to "stop eating so much food". Not helpful.

I have a weird sleeping schedule and usually don't eat anything until 12-3pm and dinner is generally 8-11pm, so I do often have a later night snack/dessert between 1-3am. She (and most people) gets up several hours earlier and goes to bed several hours later, so telling me not to eat at 3am is like telling her not to eat at 8pm. Not relevant to anything if I still have calories/points saved up for a post-workout and/or late night snack.

She also told me to stop eating so much food. She has no idea what I am eating. Apparently because I eat smaller meals/snacks every few hours that means I'm eating way too much food? Ugh!

Anyway, my phone wasn't storing photos for most of the day, and I've been finding all the photos a bit tedious, so I took that as a sign to do my blogs a little differently. From here on in, unless it's something interested or exciting, I'm just going to post my food log and not photos of all the individual items I ate. Quick and simple. So:

Still have 4 points (about 150 calories) left I can eat, but I am not going to. I'm not hungry and I have a weigh-in tomorrow around 11am. *crosses fingers* I really hope this week of no soda, lots of water, and better food choices made a difference. If not, I really think I'm going to burst into tears in the Weight Watchers room, LOL. Ugh. So frustrating.

I worked out with Walk It Out on the Wii for a change tonight. Just got back into using the Wii maybe 6 weeks ago, and until the last week had only been using Wii Fit Plus. Used EA Active earlier this week and WIO today. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses, of course, but the variety is fun. That is the extent of my fitness Wii collection. (We do have Wii Sports and Wii Resort, though, but I don't consider them exercise.)

summary at the end of workout. I'm going to say I earned 7 WW activity points. (Low intensity for about 65 minutes.)

That's about it. Wish me luck with the weigh-in.

    First off tell your mom I love you but hush the myth about eating late is just that A MYTH!!!! Second If you didn't lose, Ask yourself; are my clothes loser. Am I stronger? Are my mesurments smaller? Cause you know mussle weights more than fat. From what i see you have been doing a good job don't let your self be discouraged by a few nay sayers. Even if they are your mom

    I work a lot of overnights, so things most people take for granted (going to the gym) becomes a scheduling issue to go when it's open. Same for food. My trainer and dietician ask me when I eat, and I've resorted to giving them hour blocks instead of times because the look at me crazy when I say I eat breakfast at 8pm and dinner at 7am. So I can sympathize. Other people's opinions are generally not helpful unless they are really plugged in to what you're doing. Regardless, what works for you may not work for them, and what works for them may not work for you.

    Just do your thing!
