So, this week, I decided to NOT follow anything and just focus on eating when I was hungry, eating in moderation, and eating the right stuff. I indulged a little, drank 2 bottles of red wine this week, had 2 beers…
And stayed the same.
PRAISE CHEESUS! (Glee reference, not meant to be blasphemous)
Yup, I am ecstatic that through it all, I managed to maintain my weight for a week. Usually I gain a pound, gain another pound and then BAM forty pounds later, I am forty pounds heavier.
I also didn’t exercise. Nope, not at all. I stayed busy and tried to not just sit around, which counts for something. Weeks 3 and 4, I felt like I was starving myself, not counting points and not being healthy. I took this week off to get my mind back in the game and show myself that I can do this. I am sure if I would have just exercised, I might have lost 0.5 a pound or something.
Today, I started on the new Weight Watchers program that most people love. I hate change, but I am going to give it a shot rather than be negative or stubborn. Unfortunately though, I did use up ALL my flex points today since I made some icky choices. Thank goodness fruits/veggies are 0 points because I will surely need them to get through the week. See ya on Saturday!

And now, one of my fave “skinny” pictures of me:
This was in college in 2003. I was 18. Man, I feel old. I STILL have those red corduroy J. Lo brand pants that I am determined to fit into for family pictures next fall.
