I restarted Weight Watchers because that seems to be what works for me.
So I am trying this again. I have gotten more off track on taking care of my body than I ever have before. I am motivated right now though so I am trying to make the best of it and work on this aspect of my life finally!
I went and I looked at my weight charts for my whole history on WW. I am so disappointed in myself! Not only was I only 10lbs away from my healthy body weight, I was unhappy with my body then. And to be honest, I don't like what I see in the mirror now, yet I have had a hard time seeing myself as looking good when I weighed less. 50 pounds I have to loose! That seems so daunting!
Going to need some support and motivation to make this happen! Especially since I have started this a week before Thanksgiving, two weeks before a huge cross country move and then of course Christmas! I think I can do this!

I have been so stressed this last week. I couldn't even eat. That never happens to me! Food tasted bland and my stomach would hurt when I put food in it! The problem seems to be getting resolved, but it is still stressful. Just before all the stress hit me, the kids and I had a bad case of the stomach flu. So in a matter of a week we had the flu, had this super stressful weekend and then my oldest started her pre-k class this Monday.
With all of that, I somehow managed to lose two pounds. Gee, I wonder how?! Haha. I wasn't able to get on here and track my food or work out or anything but I did keep my one main goal! I didn't cave! I didn't have a caffeinated soda! I have been so tempted! And you know what is really weird? Because I haven't had and Diet Coke, I had this desert the other day that was loaded with Splenda, and I could taste it! My mom accidentally bought sugar free ingredients. I think my next goal will be to focus on clean, whole, "real" food. I always feel better when I am eating real food. Even with whole fat products, whole milk etc. As long as you are eating within healthy limits for your body, I feel it is just better for you. Who needs all the extra fillers that they put in things to make them low fat or sugar free.
Slowly working on adding more filling satisfying items to my regular eating to cut back on calories! Slowly but surely making these changes to my life. In the mean time, three weeks with out caffeine! That is a huge record for me! The longest in almost five years!!!

After lots of stress and almost complete financial ruin, my husband got a job! A really well paying job! And we got the first paycheck today. I celebrated! I went to Costco! I didn't go crazy. Just buying kiwis and a Halloween costume for my daughter, amongst some other assorted groceries was celebration enough. I almost bought some steak, but with this job being across the country, I couldn't bring myself to have a celebratory dinner without my husband by my side. So downfall, he is gone for a few months, we can go visit, but it's not a permanent location so we wont be moving quite yet. But we finally have money.
Some weigh has been lifted. And I was a little more motivated to do physical stuff, like getting out and vacuuming my van, than I have been recently. Also still going strong with no caffeine! I did buy some Caprisuns to help me get through the craving for a sweet drink. They serve a dual purpose in that my girls will drink them. I'm working on more water right now too. After I feel I have mastered these, my next goal will really be infusing fruits and veggies into my diet. I think I will take it slow though and really focus on the no caffeine and water goal. I do eat fruits and veggies, but I could always use more!
So today is good. Better times are ahead. And maybe as I work on this, I can also start to work on my goal to be a little skinnier whenever my husband gets back or we go visit! Trying hard not to put too much pressure on myself though so that I don't get too obsessed! That is always my pitfall!
One day at a time!

In my attempt to not have a diet coke or any caffeine, I have made it almost a week. I have definitely hit a point this afternoon where I am needing a lift. That is what got me in the habit in the first place, mid afternoon droop, needing a break, needing something to get me through. That's usually when I crack open a can. I am like a total addict for diet coke and diet dr pepper. I have another dip down at bed time, and on really bad days, I admit, I have been known to open another can. This is my main vice. I don't drink and I don't smoke, so I turned to diet soda. I really want to be healthy and this seems to be something that I am able to curb at the moment. But I think I need some help! What are some real things that help you get through the slumps and dips in the day? What keeps you going?
In the mean time, still staying strong! Though I've really wanted one, I resisted! Jumped on here for support rather than succumb to the diet coke craving!
