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! emoticon

    I've been tinkering with the idea of going to WW. I need face to face accountability.

    I'm very proud of you!!!! The last time I joined WW I didn't stay long enough to make it to my 10% mark so that is astounding. You are almost there! And not only did you not feel deprived having the parfait, you are actually planning to go back in the future, not for the food, but for the company. That is a big mental step! emoticon
