Down 0.6 pounds ...that's - 27.4 in the last 15 weeks. Inch at a time. Accountability really works for me. I have not discussed with the leader that I'm still not using the points...but it's so interesting that the things I have learned on SP really do work and echo/or mirror much of what WW is proposing. Like, don't skip meals and if you have to, eat smaller meals more often. Exercise more, choose more wisely when it comes to foods...like choosing foods that are low in calories/high in fiber/ and last longer. Mix it up on your choices ever so often. And remember the blogs we read on making sure the refridgerator was a match for our healthier lifestyle? Filling it with fruits and vegetables and preparing these choices when they were brought into the house so that the good stuff would be ready to eat at meals and snacks??? WW calls it 'spaces' ...The leader asked me if I wrote down my foods. Because of SP, I track my food for a week in advance...I know what I'm going to eat on most days and have 'go to' meals for the days when I need them. BUT...I need the WW scales on a specific night at a specific time to keep me motivated NOT to stand in front of that woman who does the weighing with a gain. She writes down the gain in total silence, doesn't look at me when she hands me the book back, and acts like I'm an embarrassment. Intellectually I know that's probably not what she's thinking..but my old feelings of shame just flood when I don't lose. I can almost hear my mother as it is when I don't take at least a pound off ( is that all you lost? You ate too much. I told you it wouldn't work. You're wasting your money) Maybe some of you have heard this before too. This is when I have to just take a deep breath and keep Sparkin'!! I want to lose 7 more pounds in the next month...I think it's do-able...but I'll have to focus.
Anyway..straightened Honey's garage after the meeting. He fell in there Sunday morning and I wanted to make sure he had a clear path to get out from the house. Last week he had a new roof put on the house and the contractor left 4 pallets/pkgs(?) of roofing in the garage. I moved them over the the side and picked up all the trash. He feels better than he did last week...at least he's getting his appetite back, but he's still fragile.
One more week without one of our doctors. I'm itching to find a way to call in for at least a day or two. I have to get the yard work caught up sometime this summer and need to start cleaning out and painting our storage buildings. Oh I wish I were 10 people and had the energy to keep up. Too much to do and experience and too little time!!
Be blessed all!! Keep Sparkin'!!

    I am also a WW member...I dislike the weighing in part but I have to admit it makes me much more accountable than weighing in alone in the bathroom (although my bathroom scale does have my true weight (1st thing in the morning, birthday suit, etc). I also don't like having to pay for that accountability but I have a very motivating leader, a good group at the meeting, and it's "me time" which the family respects. Glad to hear you are still losing -- every little bit, no matter small, is still showing you weigh less than the last time!

    Great progress, and every part lb down is way better than a partial gain.

    Congratulations on your loss. Every little bit counts. Great job!
