Rainy Tuesday :( November 8, 2011
Tuesday, November 08, 2011
Good morning SparkPeople! It's raining here in Chicago and it makes me sleepy. I walked to my Weight Watchers meeting this morning and I didn't get too wet. I lost 2 more pounds. I need to lose 3.8 more pounds to hit my first 10% mark. I was so close at the beginning of June and then the edema in my legs got worse. I am watching extra carefully what I'm eating. I've cooked and baked a few things and left out the salt entirely. Nobody noticed a difference in taste. I even had a slice of cheesecake this week. I made sure to deduct it from my daily POINTS.
I went to McD's with my 2 younger sisters yesterday and all I allowed myself was a Coke Zero and a parfait. My one sister commented on how long it took me to eat it. In the past, I would have been aware of what they were eating and that I couldn't have it. It didn't even bother me yesterday. We decided to maybe make it a weekly thing. I live so close to my younger siblings yet we don't see each other but maybe once every month or two. We had a good time.
I hope my job will honor my request and give me Tuesdays off, so I can go to the morning WW meeting. There is an evening meeting, but if I work I can't make it to the meeting because I'm too tired or sore from standing all day. I like the morning meeting better than the evening one. I always feel so out of place, but I'm opening myself up more. Today I met a new join and she was so excited because she lost 6 pounds on her first week of WW. She was kind enough to drive me home because it was raining. I even told her about SparkPeople. She said she'd check it out when she had time.
Gotta go write my food in my Tracker. Have a great week SparkPeople!
