WI Monday......week 2 on weight watchers

Well it's weigh in Monday. I think I will do good, I cheated and got on the scales at the daughter's house last night. I was down like 7 lbs., but that can't be right. I would be happy for just any lost. I ate so many sugar free tropical popsciles, and so much diet jello with FF cool whip. Plus, I ate an entire pineapple over the weekend. I just couldn't stop. I went to church yesterday with my daughter, and I ate dinner out there also. She had chicken pot pie, but I just had a smaller portion. It was Costco kind, it really wasn't that good. I really didn't do much this weekend. I didn't go to any movies ( rare ). Didn't do any housework either. I feel like I spent most of the weekend driving to my daughter's house. She live about 30 miles away. My knee was so sore last night. I was kind of ( ok I was a big ) brat. I whined all day yesterday. I hate it that I can't walk the way I want to. I have noticed that my gait is even differant. I have an appointment, I think tomorrow, with the doctor to go over the results of the MRI. Work will be good, Monday is a get used to being back to work day. I have been awake since 3 am. That drives me crazy when that happens. I have enjoyed reading lots of your blogs this weekend. So inspiring, and I really do feel like I have found a whole new group of friends. Well, I am going to try and clean my room before I get the heck out of here. Ok, one more thing.....I WANT TO LIKE OATMEAL. I'm sure this is a thing from childhood.....I really hated it, and my mom made me eat it. But it's such a good food, and I wondering if I could get some oatmeal tips.

Thanks.....let's make it a grrrrrrrrrreat day!


  1. Hope they're able to help you with your knee!! I know i'd be lost if i wasn't able to go on my walks. I'm sure you'll have a nice loss this week.

  2. Good luck with the knee!

    Oatmeal. I sometimes put some cut up banana in my oatmel OR cut up apple into my oatmeal BEFORE I cook it. (if you put it in afterward is just doesn't taste as good). I also splurge and do a bit of brown sugar (I add cinnamon if I'm adding apple). But what it comes down to is this. If you simply do not like oatmeal...then don't force yourself to eat it. This journey to health is about finding what works for you. If oatmeal is not your cup of tea...then move on to something that is! That is the only way that this will become a true lifestyle change!

  3. I don't think a whole pineapple is going to hurt you!! I love fresh pineapple:) And as far as the jello/cool whip goes...I have done that, too!!!! LOL!!

    I pray your knees get better.'s not my fave either. I mean I like it but I wouldn't miss it. Ya' know? I like mine with lots of Splenda, sometimes cinnamon and almonds or other nut and a splash of milk.

  4. Yeah I have to cook oatmeal til it's super sticky and mooshy or I hate it.

    I think you'll have a great weigh in!

  5. so many awesome things you can do with oatmeal. Here's a way you might like..........after cooking it add 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and some cinnamon.......reheat if it's not warm with fat free yogurt--kind of apple-pie-ish with ice cream effect

    Good luck with WI!
